Itchy bum hole and odd feeling in stomach. Taking Ovex, no results. Is it worms?

I have a constant itchy bum hole and an odd feeling in my stomach . I think I have worms . but I have taken Ovex and well nothing had changed since my dose. My diet is getting much better I m a vegi I only ever eat sausages that are really really well done if any at all other than that I eat NO meat. I don t use toilet paper I only ever wash, TP is really unhygienic. My dog often climes in to bed when I m sleeping so i thought worms. but now I m just unsure.

Thank you for the query.

Itchy rectal area can be caused by pinworms, however it can be also a result of hemorrhoids. If it is about pinworms, single dosage of Ovex can not treat it as it lefts larva in the beddings, underwear and everywhere you have been sitting etc. So it is advisable to change or wash it all in a high temperature. Also whole family should be treated for it. But before that, I suggest you to have it diagnosed. To do that stool test should be performed.
If you do suffer from any constipations, or is there any blood in stool, it is advisable for you to have rectal examination and rectoscopy to rule out hemorrhoids.

Hope this will help.
