Or try empiric therapy-pyrantel pamoate, mebendazole or albendazole. Read more

Hi. I have dry, itchy, scalpy, flaky, cracking skin around my anus and on buttlocks. It itches very bad. How can I treat that?

Over the counter steroid (cortisone) is a FIRST AID you can try....but check with your PCP for any other treatment if you cannot see a Dermatology specialist soon! Hope this helps! Dr z Read more
