When ever I finish going to the toilet about an hour later I get all itchy around the anus I wipe well I had a pile a few months ago?

Too much wiping: Often "wiping well" causes trauma to the skin around the anus that will lead to chronic itching. Using moist wipes often allow "getting clean" without excessive wiping and trauma. A short course of a mild topical steroid can be helpful for the itching when more important causes have been ruled out. ...Read more
