Can anal itching indicate worm infection, also have prostatitis?
hello, i have had prostatitis accompanied by anal itching for several years. I have taken cipro and bactrim but neither have cured the condition. I have no known food sensitivities. is it possible that I have a pinworm infection as evidenced by the anal itching?
Hello, Welcome t HCM Anal itching may be due to various reasons like spicy foods, hot sauces, and peppers. It may also be due to yeast infection, pinworm infection,hemorrhoids, tears of the anal skin (fissures), and skin tags (abnormal local growth of anal skin). Prostatitis doesn't cause anal itching. Also you don't have food sensitivities, So, most probably you are suffering from pinworm infection. I would suggest you to take antiparasitic medications like mebendazole, pyrantel pamoate after consulting your treating doctor. Thank you.
