Butt itches bad. Could be dry skin. On which parts of the butt area is hydrocortisone not recommended?

Butt itches bad. Could be dry skin. On which parts of the butt area is hydrocortisone not recommended?

Hard to say: The most delicate skin on the buttocks would be the area around the anus. Hydrocortisone would need to be used carefully there. However, some causes of itching in that area would not respond to hydrocortisone. Pin worms for one, yeast or fungal infection for another, and a bacterial infection also wouldn't do well with hydrocortisone. ...Read more

I have really bad butt pains when I poop it bleeds and itches and also it's throbbing pain?

Hemorrhoid?: Most likely have hemorrhoids. It is hard to clean the anal area after having a BM with hemorrhoids that can cause itching and irritation. Hemorrhoids can bleed and throb. Use baby wipes to clean and try over the counter hemorrhoid cream. May need to see your doctor or ER if pain worsens. You can get a blood clot in a hemorrhoid which may need to be removed. Steroid cream can reduce the pain. ...Read more
