My anus itches, burns, and sometimes feels like their is glass in it.  This has been going on for a year, it is very uncomfortab no problem using the bathroom...Just severe discomfort, especially when sweating.

Possible : Possible reasons for anal itching / burning: pinworms, hemorrhoids, skin tags, psoriasis, chemicals in foods (hot or spicy food), yeast infection (just to mention a few). If you had an anal fissure it would probably be painful when you defecated. If you had loose stools irritating the skin, you probably would have mentioned it. It you had a severe illness like crohn’s disease causing a fistula, you would have a lot more symptoms. Recommendation: see your doctor, who can obtain a good history and examine you to determine the cause. Once the cause is determined, appropriate options for addressing this issue can be made. Good luck. ...Read more
