The past few months i have unusual lot of gas, which is often quite embarassing. I also have itching around the anal area and further up, and reddness (sking irritation) down the middle. I have used Betnovade Cream for two weeks, but having stopped it, after a few days I feel the symptoms slowly returning. I cannot understand why this is happening, because i haven t changed anything in terms of food habitts, environment, ... nothing. Would the skin irritation be a result of the gas (and its chemical consistancy) - it lookes like burnet ... because the gas is frequent and is caged in the underware? Could you please suggest something. Should I have a stool sample examined ? thanks a lot Vivienne

This is a really embarassing problem and I don't know if anyone can give me some advice. I have gas down below (vaginal area)-(similar to "fanny farts" -I do apologise for that phrase). It's like bubbles that pop and I can't control it - I get it all the time but sometimes it's worse than others. The hospital say that they can't do anything to assist - they don't think it relates to my back passage, even though it sometimes seems worse if I've had wheat. I've had it said in the past that I have a lot of discharge but it's strange because I feel so kind over dry down there. Can anyone help because it really gets me down. Thanks
