Anal itching, scratches around anus skin, light bleeding. No pain/normal bowel mov. Rectoscopy normal. Ongoing for years. What is the best treatment?

Clean: Anal itching can be a very tough symptom to cure. However, I have found the following procedure an excellent "almost" cure. Immediately after every bowl movement, wash the area with soap and water. Dry the area well and then either rub in otc Hydrocortisone cream or vasaline petroleum jelly. This routine works great and has been extremely successful with my patients. ...Read more

Toe fungus. Big one is bleeding/dried blood (recurring) a bit at cuticle corner & the skin around is puffy circle. Best treatment laser or Jublia? Or?

See a dermatologist: Begin by defining the problem. Is fungus the primary concern? Oral terbinafine for 3 months is safe and costs $12 cash.It is about 60% effective as judged by result 1 year later. Laser costs $1000, not covered by insurance, uncertain result. You need a year to find out if it helped. The cream costs over $1000 for less than 10% success. You pick one. ...Read more
