Itchy Anus Cure for Me!
If you have ruled out all obvious things (fungus, hemorrhoids, worms), then please try DIFLORASONE DIACETATE CREAM. Read on for my story!

I have suffered with extreme anal itching for years. I have tried every natural remedy and found them all to be totally useless. I have tried every anti-itch cream and found them to work for only about a half-hour. I have tried treatment for worms, but I don't have worms. I have tried hemorrhoid medicines and sometimes they helped just a little. I have tried anti-fungal meds and they didn't make a difference at all. I have tried switching soaps, eliminating soap, using wipes, not using wipes.

Then I remembered that I had this cream in my medicine cabinet that I got when I was a teenager. It was prescribed to me when I had some kind of allergic reaction on my lips. (Not herpes, but some kind of skin allergy.) I kept the cream all these years, for the lip thing would come back maybe once a year and it always helped.

So I put the cream on my butt and, instantly, it was cured. Instantly.

I used it every day for five days just to be sure, but I have now been itch-fre and cream-free for a month. It is like a miracle cure.

I still don;t know what exactly my problem was down there, nor does my doctor. But I don;t even care now that the cure has been found.

Try it, for real. I am so relieved I am posting this message wherever I can.

Very possible that it's skin fungus (I've had the same problem). You can try over the counter cream and if you get some relief, then you know it's fungus. You have to be religious about washing really well every day with a gentle soap and then make sure the area is completely dry before applying cream. You'll need to apply 2x a day for 2-4 weeks. Also, make sure to use a clean washcloth/towel every time because if one little spore gets on the towel and you use it again, it will re-infect. You should experience significant relief from the itching within the first day. It may appear to have cleared up within a few days but DON'T stop the treatment early, because it will come back (I've learned the hard way). Also using fragrance free talcum powder to keep area dry is good. I read that you should not use powder that has cornstarch because that can make it worse. Hope this helps. I know how annoying this problem is!

Extremely eHealthy
d32789;
if u believe it is fungus here r two things u can do
buy probiotics at a vitamin store to get the best price because u want ultra high culture counts of 100 billion daily and take for a week and keep some
also open one of the capsules and mix with what ever ointment or cream and if it is yeast the probiotics eat it like gourmet meal
lots of time what happened is people took antibiotics which kill the bad and the GOOD
best to u

I've had an itchy butthole and crack for a couple months. My doctor said it was a rash from my thong. She gave me hydrocortisone acetate that I stick up my butthole. It melts at body temp and slowly seeps out. (not messy or leak through clothes). It is supposed to be used to help with hemmroids. I also use a prescription powder to keep it dry. It definitely has made the itching go down but not done. Now it itches after I go to the bathroom. Even after just pee. And whenever I wipe my butt it hurts, I guess its a sore? I've tried apple cider vinegar and other home remedies. Any ideas on what could help? I've been using this medicine for a week! Help!

Intense itching & bleeding in butt crack!!
Oh thank goodness I found this site!! I tried looking it up on Web MD, The Triage App. and Ask.com, as well as EMBARRESSINGproblems.com. I couldn't find a thing!! My itching in my butt crack got so intense that my scratching caused bleeding!! I'm wondering why it is that sometimes when I'm washing it in the shower, it sets off the itching? I use body wash, & it doesn't always happen. I'm using the same detergent too. Sometimes it will look like a yeast infection and smell like alpine lace Swiss cheese ( I know, I'm probably grossing u guys out by now) butt, (lol) I will take any suggestions you have . Thanks!!

Itchy Butt
My butt crack will do this sometimes. It's at the very top where my butt crack ends and becomes my lower back. I had bed sores once a long time ago after being in the hospital and this is what it looks and feels like. It swells then it starts to itch uncontrollably, after rubbing or scratching it a few times it turns into tiny water blisters, if I keep scratching they burst and I get sores. I have noticed that hand sanitizer, rubbing alcohol, or sometimes something with menthol or tea tree helps. What I don't know is what is causing it. Any ideas?

Butt itch
I have had an itch over an year now which was getting worse and worse. After trying x amount of corticosteroid creams with no success, I have decided to try a more homeopathic approach. I am not sure what helps, but I am using a combination of creams, Desitin over night, Calendula cream twice a day (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED), chamomile tea and lavender oil while bathing. It has been a week now since I have been trying this mix and it seems to help. Be patient as you will not see improvements the next day, it usually takes about a week to note that the itch is going away slowly or is not as persistent as before. Give calendula cream a try.

I had spent years trying to figure this out, as I too suffer from what we call itchy crack. I even went to several doctors-even a specialist-with me leaving and them scratching their heads over my complaint. So I got on the internet and investigated the symptoms which spell Pruritus Ani which you can google. Mine started with me wearing nylon to a workout class which irritated the anal region--and it never stopped. At first I thought I had hemorrhoids--and all doctors confirmed that wasn't the problem. At any rate over the next few years I tried every single over the counter item anti itching creams, etc. along with suggestions on the internet. Nothing worked to cure the problem. I could not get the itching to stop and the more I tried to put ointment or powder on it--the itching just got worse.

So--after all of this--I got up enough nerve to talk to my female GYN doctor about it--and said have you heard of Pruritus Ani--and she said of course--you mean itchy crack syndrome, don't you? YAY-I finally found a doctor who knew what I was talking about. At any rate she gave me a prescription for a steroid gel that finally CURED the problem.

So don't be embarrassed to talk to your doctor about it-and whatever you do don't let them just shrug you off because they don't know what Pruritus Ani is. Have them write you a prescription for a steroid gel to cure the problem. My gel is Triamcinolone 0.5% ointment 15gm

Hope this helps!

Desitin, Desitin, Desitin - I've been struggling with this for 6 years. I used Desitin and gone in a week! Make sure you wash well and are very dry before applying it as it acts as a barrier between your skin and moisture. I only used a very mild body wash to cleanse during this time.

anal crack itching, irritation, bleeding
Clean are up to 4x day, then wipe with hydrogen peroxide.this will kill any germs and keep clean.
Apply a mixture of hydrocortizone cream and neo or polysporin antibiotic cream
One for itch control, other for bacteria/infection.
Continue until healing is noticiable.
If that doesn't help, try antifugal cream mized with hydrocortisone cream
Nystatin rx or over the counter.I'm trying nystatin now. (For yeast overgrowth usually happens in damp, dark, sweaty area's like diaper rash..responds well to nystatin.
Try not to touch, scratch or irritate area.
Keep clean!

Night Time Anal Itch
I really stepped up my hygienic routine and that helped a bit but my problem was night time anal itching that seemed to spread to my vaginal area and, yes, it did keep me awake at night. Cortiosteroids (sp?!) did seem to help but I'm not really comfortable using steroids down there-at least for long periods. Desitin is also good at soothing the skin in that area but doesn't seem to help the overall problem. My BF actually found this spray which seemed like a joke at first that basically erased the issue. It's weird to get used to using a spray in that area but the results have been crazy good and would recommend it to any women who want to avoid steroids to solve the problem. The spray is called Fire in the hole (told you). Also check with your doctor if the itch doesn't go away because you might have allergies that are causing it.

I just want to share my experience with you in hopes it may help somebody. I developed an itchy butt crack so much so that I went to a dermatologist last year. He told me i had a fungus: i used Lotrimin and it seemed to help. A few months later however, the itching and irritation came back so I went to another dermatologist; This derm shocked me when he told me he thought I had herpes and a culture confirmed it. The herpes had migrated from my thigh (had that off and on for 25 years). I was floored. With herpes it heals over a period of two weeks. I don't use antivirals although I may in the future. I use Desitin cream 40% for the irritation and itching and it does work most of the time. I can't tell you how shocked I am that I have this herpes infection. If you continue to have a problem I would visit a dermatologist and get the area cultured.
