What causes itching sensation on anal area post defecation?
One doesn't have constipation.
On application of Coconut Oil / Cream the itch soothens up.
Can u advice whether one should go for any diet change.
High dietary fibre with curtailing oily foods
Anal itching is mainly due to anal sweating, intestinal parasites, infective diarrhea or candidiasis.
Treatment is mainly based on the underlying cause.
Here you have mentioned that you are taking too much coffee, tea, citrus fruits.
I would suggest you to take high fibres in diet(salad) like cucumber, cabbage, carrot etc. Avoid spicy and oily foods. Avoid excess sugar in diet or tea or coffee. Take only soft diet in initial couple of days. Avoid citrus fruits as they might cause anal irritation.
In most of the cases anal itching get cured by itself or just by dietary modification when there is no any underlying disease.
If your problem persists or you want to ask more, then just let me know.
