Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Do you have any rash?
I mean a rash in the anal area?
Have you had any problem with hemorrhoids previously?
please let me know.
ihave not had problems with hemorrhoids previously i do have a slight swelling around the anal area
Itching at the anal can have many causes.
One cause that is very common is a fungal infection
Using over-the-counter antifungal creams such as miconazole skin cream can help with the itching.
Also friction and moisture can irritate the sensitive skin in the anal area. This irritation sometimes causes anal itching. Scents, dyes and softening agents in products such as soap and toilet paper may also trigger irritation and anal itching. Overuse of these products often aggravates the problem.
Are you following me?
i have been using baby wipes on the area ihave suffered with thrush in the past
What is your age and gender?
Yes a yeast infection seems likely, particularly if you have suffered from it in the past which is why I think using an antifungal cream is not a bad option.
Daktacort is available over-the-counter
which is what I would use
i am female my age is 57
Ok, so it makes it all the more likely to be a yeast infection since it is more common in females.
It may not cause any rash to appear on the skin.
I would like that you should try daktacort.
thankyou for your help
