What causes anal itching?

I am continuing to have anal itching and/or hemorrhoids. Not sure. It s been going on for a few weeks. I try to keep it clean and it seems to get better, then comes back. From what i can tell, there doesn t seem to be any bulge indicating hemerrhoid, but I have no idea. In addition, I ve developed a rash toward the top and one on the side of the anus. That seems to be scabbing over. I ve tried every topical treatment on the market. Some relieve, but not cure. Any suggestions?

Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to hemorrhoids.

I suggest using anti hemorrhoid cream for local application such as Preparation H.

I also recommend using a fiber rich diet and drink a lot of liquids to prevent constipation.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contappct me again.

Kind regards!
