Itching in the anus and piles problem

I am a 47 year old male. I am suffering from anal itching for the last few weeks. I tried several creams, including Mylocort, and another cream which my pharmicist made up himself. I had take a course of de-worming tablets about 3 months ago. I also have piles, but this is very mild and does not really trouble me. I am able to pass stool daily, I am not constipated, and I do not find any difficulty to pass stool. I went back to my pharmicist who now gave me sofradex-f cream. I have not started using it as yet. What can you tell me about this cream and will it work. Or do you suggest something else.
