while passing it and suddenly burning sensation and pain occurs around the anal area.

Rectal bleeding: The bleeding may be due to a painful anal fissure and/or hemorrhoids injured by hard stool. To more easily pass stools take daily stool softener like colace, drink adequate fluids, include fiber in your diet and insert glycerin rectal suppositories before BM. Insert dulcolax suppository or lubricated fleets enema as needed. Apply warm compresses. See proctologist if anal discomfort,blood persists.

Scabicide & dryness: Scabies treatments often contain a high percentage of alcohol which can be very drying to the skin, especially sensitive tissues of the face and genitals. Hypoallergenic soaps and lotions which are pH balanced will help the skin recover more quickly, and reduce the itching that can last up to two weeks after treatment.

Zinc oxide: Any of the zinc oxide ointments that are used for diaper rash are a nice trick. They sooth the skin and coat it to protect it from further irritation from the stool. Other options include a cortisone ointment, but this can thin the skin, ultimately leading to it being more fragile and vulnerable to irritation.

Talk to your MD: Talk to your doctor again. You may need a different medication to treat the fissure if its not healed. It could also be a reaction to the cream itself. Sitz baths twice daily and avoiding constipation may also help.
