I am 24-years-old male. My anus has been itching for the last four days without any additional problems. I did not have this issue previously. What should I do now?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Thank you for the query, and I can understand your concern.
According to your statement, you have been suffering from anal itching for the last few days. Anal itching is also known as pruritus ani. Pruritus ani may result from the dry and irritated anal area due to use of harsh soap, rough toilet paper, allergic reactions due to scented lotion, cream, or ointment, irritation by a small piece of fecal matter, infections due to bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infestations, scabies, dermatological conditions like contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn's disease, psychological disorders like anxiety or stress, systemic diseases like thyroid dysfunction, diabetes mellitus, leukemia, anal problems like rectal prolapse, hemorrhoids, anal fissures and many more.
Diagnosis can be done by physical inspection and taking skin specimens from the affected area. In the meantime, you can use mild steroid-like Hydrocortisone topical cream to subside your itchiness.
