What does an itchy bottom with minor boil?

default
Posted on Sat, 29 Mar 2014
Question: I am 30yr old male. Since Dec last year,I have been having itchy bottom.It felt like a minor abcess/boil in tht area. It was very prominent in XXXXXXX but it subsided significanyly in Feb after I started applying anti fungal powder. Even the abcess,which I had,subsided. I have been applying the powder every other day. However,since yesterday I feel itching in the anal area again. Which specialist shd I see? Could this be something serious like haemorrhoids?,would I need colonoscopy? Please advise,thanks.
