Hello! My name is Dr.Ehtisham. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Do you have constipation?

Any blood in stools?

Have you used any medicine for this?


Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No constipation or blood. I've use anusol which has helped with itching

Thanks for the details

This can be a yeast infection or a worm infestation

You need to use an anti-fungal first of all

If that does not help then an anti-helminth for worm

Sometime these symptoms are just due to hemorrhoid which is present internally and had never bleed in the past

You have to get an examination for this as well

Please do let me know if you have any other question


Are you with me?

Anything else you need help with?


Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Thanks. Is there an anti fungal you'd recommend?

You can use Clotrimazole

Please do let me know if you have any other question
