Parasites And Anal Itching In Children
I've been having anal itching lately x1wk used new soap no hemorrhoids don't want to get tested for GI parasite I will freak out! Can I take OTC w/o dx?
Itchy Butt; Caffeine: Is the most common cause of anal itching not hemorrhoids as stated win the ads. Pinworms can be another cause usually in children after playing in the dirt. But cokes, coffee, tea, chocolate, and energy drinks like red bull have lots of caffeine leading to severe itching and bleeding, even waking you from your sleep at night clawing at your bottom. Stop the caffeine! Don't use soap on your botto.See 1 more doctor answer
I have had severe anal itching that I think has spread to my face it looks the same and spreading quickly with open sores and raised rash I have been checked for parasites and am okay I also have uncontrolable diahhera?
Yesterday unexpectedly I got anal itching and I don't know why. What could it be? Usually it itches during the morning and night, not the afternoon.
Rash or pinworms?: This is a common symptom of a pinworm infection. It is not life-threatening and easy to treat. See your doctor and explain what's going on. You could also have a rash that might need a non-prescription cream or ointment. Itchiness in that area is common, and a quick visit with the doctor should be diagnostic and helpful.
Anal itching for 2 months, Dr thought pinworms. Prescribed albenza 8 days ago, anus still itches like crazy. Should itch have stopped? Is it working?
Most common problem: Is hemorrhoids. Try tub baths a few times a week instead of shower, use pre-moistened wipes in a dabbing rather than "sandpaper" motion, prep h is worth a try. If this doesn't work, pcp or medical GI help.
Itchy Butt; Caffeine: Is the most common cause of anal itching not hemorrhoids as stated win the ads. Pinworms can be another cause usually in children after playing in the dirt. But cokes, coffee, tea, chocolate, and energy drinks like red bull have lots of caffeine leading to severe itching and bleeding, even waking you from your sleep at night clawing at your bottom. Stop the caffeine!
Anal itching: Unpleasant sensation that creates the urge to scratch oneself in the anal or perianal area.
Anal Itching: Anal itching makes me think of pin worms or yeast. If the itching is worse at night, then it may be pinworms. You could do a "tape test" (do an online search for this or just ask here). If it is itchy most all the time, then it makes me think it is yeast. Are you a diabetic? Diabetics are more likely to have problems with yeast. Yeast infections also often occur after antibiotics.
See you doctor: See you doctor to see what is the cause of the anal symptoms and treat it appropriately.
At least 5 causes: Causes--most commonly results from failure to clean the area after a bowel movement. Others inclued some foods and drinks that may irritate the anus, some powerful antibiotics, chemical irritation or skin allergy in the anal area, and intense cleaning after a bowel movement. Less often, an anal itch may be a symptom of an illness that affects the anal area. The treatment would depend on the cause.
