Brief Answer:
Possibly IBS associated constipation;candida overgrowth to exclude though..

Detailed Answer:
Hi back XXXXXXX

IBS is also causing hemorrhoids or laceration of the anal area as it is accompanied by alteration in bowel movements (constipation and diarrhea; I believe you are having constipation problems).

I still think you should get your stool cultured to rule out candida infection. Increase fluids intake and avoid those foods that would cause constipation.

Prep H is the cream mostly used in these cases, can you please provide the name of the cream you are currently taking?

Thank you!
