Anal itching is a common condition. The itch, situated in or around your anus, is often intense and may be accompanied by a strong urge to scratch. You may find anal itching to be embarrassing and uncomfortable. Also called pruritus ani (proo-rie-tus a-nie), anal itching has many possible causes, such as skin problems, hemorrhoids, and washing too much or not enough. Prevention of anal itching mainly involves a careful washing routine that keeps the area clean, cool and dry, while avoiding further irritating the skin. If you already have anal itching, try these self-care measures: you get better relief cleanse gently. clean the area around the anus with plain water or mild soap and a soft (nonterry) washcloth once daily. Avoid scrubbing. Pat dry or use a hair dryer set on low. If you have fecal incontinence or diarrhea, clean the area around the anus with moist cotton balls or a squirt bottle of plain water. It may also help to apply a moistened or dry cotton ball to the outside of the anus. Don't scratch. scratching further irritates your skin. You may find some relief by applying a moist, room-temperature compress to the area or taking a lukewarm oatmeal bath. Trim your nails short and wear cotton gloves while you're sleeping to help prevent scratching. Wear white cotton underwear that don't bind. this helps keep the area dry. Avoid wearing pantyhose and other tightfitting garments because these can trap moisture avoid irritants. avoid bubble baths, genital deodorants, harsh or perfumed soaps, and moist wipes.

You should consult a psychiatrist. Please do not hesitate. Nowadays there are no mental factors which affect the physical body. Also, visit ent. Some times sleep apnea may be there due to allergy to dust and pollutants. If that is resolved many other symptoms will disappear. Line of action -> 1st visit ent. 2nd visit psychiatrist if symptoms do not go in 1 weeks time.

Difference between the anal fissure and chronic fissure, how we identify it. I am stuff from anal fissure for the last two months. I want ayurveda medicines .help me.

Anal fissure is a cut injury in anal region. Usually it results from passage of hard stool or frequent bowel movement. When fissure does not heals for a long time period it converts to chronic anal fissure a an extra growth starts developing from lower end of this cut injury which is known as sentinel tag. For anal fissure; you should take sitz bath (hot water tub bath) followed by application of sushruta ointment and lekhan powder in anal passage 2-4 times daily. Put 5 ml of oil in anal passage in night. For easy evacuation of bowel movement; you should take 1 tea spoon of sushruta churna with warm water in night. For further support and to get these medicines you should contact reception at sushruta ano rectal institute.

I'm a 23 year old woman. I frequently have sex with my boyfriend whom i'm getting to married. But the thing is I got a itchy problem on my vaginal area. I'm afraid whether it is a symbol of hiv.

Here are a few tips for preventing and treating vaginal irritation at home:- Avoid scented pads or toilet paper, creams, bubble bath, feminine sprays, and douches. Use water and a plain, unscented soap to regularly clean your external genital area. Always wipe from front to back after having a bowel movement.
