    Itchy Bottom

    Itchy bottom is normally a symptom rather than a condition, and is characterised by a persistent strong urge to scratch the skin around the anus. Read more →

    I have these symptoms described of an itchy bottom. It has been on and off (mostly on) for about 3 months now. It tends to be most itchy when I go to bed and so I have been using Sudocrem. Sometimes I think I can feel little spots around the bottom area. These symptoms don't seem to be relieving, Why? What do you recommend?

    I am a 33 yr old female. I have suffered with an incredibly itchy bottom since I was 18!! It's not worms (been treated). It weeps but I don't have a wound. It's incredibly itchy and can get very very sore. There is very little redness and I have not got haemeroids. What is this and what can I do to ease this embarrassing problem??

    I was diagnosed with dormant childhood exema two years ago, my exema is mainly on my feet and ankles, it starts as very very tiny bilsters which then turn red so it looks like a rash, it is so so very itchy, mine too looks loike i have been burnt,you are right no steroid cream works in fact it sometimes seemt to make it worse, the doctors tell me to use double base gel every hour, you try to work and fit that in. i used to be a builder and the docs said i need to change my job as it was not good for my feet, so taking a job where i am sat on my backside all day in an office, did it get better? no it seems to be worse than ever now. i am now going to go to the docs once a week regardless of what they say untill someone actuall takes a proper look into the problem instesd of just keep giving me steroids which thins the skin and never makes a difference.

    Dab with white vinegar. It will sting a bit to start with but once the lesions have healed, no more problem.

    In October 2011 I got bites all over my bottom cheeks (maybe 20 or so in close clusters) and a few on my upper legs. I got them diagnosed as Bed Bug bites and I was told they would go within a few weeks, or maybe, at most, a few months. They were unbelievably itchy, and so in the meantime I was told to use hydrocortizine cream and take antihistamine tablets, which did indeed reduce the itchyness. SEVEN months have passed now and I still have very pronounced, very hard bumps on my bottom in exactly the same places - note that no 'new' marks have come, but the same ones have remained. They are no longer as itchy, but they are uncomfortable and the skin around that area gets very dry, which in turn does encourage me to itch, but this can be relieved (temporarily!) by simply moisturising. I went back to the doctor maybe a month or so ago to ask why these lumps has remained and he told me to continue waiting and they will go down. However, surely after SEVEN MONTHS something strange is going on? I am exasperated with these awful bumps and need an answer to get rid of them!

    It's almost impossible for a doctor to diagnose bed bug bites without you showing them the bug itself. There are so many variables that can cause itchiness/swelling and bites. With this many bites on your body you would have been able to see the bed bugs if you inspected for them. You have not mentioned having them eradicated or the fact that you found any. If you had that many bites from a bed bug they would still be in your house 'and still biting you'. I would look for a second opinion, particularly as you are no longer being bitten. * I work as a bed bug specialist in Australia and deal with many guests who are bitten. My advice is to seek another opinion as I'm sure they are not bed bug bites.

    I have red spots that look like itchy bites that appear daily anywhere on my body, legs, arms, groin, tummy, bottom, eye lids, neck etc... they disappear by the end of the day and then reappear the next morning but in completely different places, some mornings there are more than others, they are a bit itchy but not insanely itchy, and sometimes they are in a round shape with white in the middle but mostly just red spots. I can't see any bite marks on them. I can't figure out what they are it's driving me crazy, the doctor just thinks they're bites. I have searched for bed bugs in my mattress and haven't found anything, have insect bombed our house twice & vacuumed the house & mattress & washed all blankets in hot water etc... and I'm still getting them. Also I'm the only one in the house getting them. Does anyone know what they could be??

    I would get the doctor to do an allergy test.

    When I feel I have an itchy bottom, there is moisture and like discharge from the back area, not vagina. I have not had sex. So what is this? Is it serious?

    Without being rude, i think the comment 'an itchy bottom is nothing' is a massive sweeping statement and largely unprofessional. For some people like myself who have been seeking a diagnosis and treatment for over a year with no success and have to deal with intense itching on a daily basis which causes sleep deprivation and a feeling of slowly going mad...it may seem like the grasshoppers have got it easy...at least they get away from it. NEVER say to a person with a condition like this 'an itchy bottom is nothing'. It's torture...literally!

    For many months now, I've had a very itchy bottom. Mainly after a poo, but also just after sitting down watching TV for a while and at night more. Not sure what it is. When wiping, it feels good to wipe hard to get rid of the itch, but then my bottom hurt for a short while after and has bled before now. The itching seems to be spreading too, as I'm itchy now between my anus and my testicles. I've tried creams like Anusol, but these hurt as I will have just been scratching the area. Is it piles or worms? I just want to stop scratching... Help

    You should go on anti candida diet it cleaned up all my bum itching problems, take tea tree oil baths and rub garlic around the anus, chances are you got thrush too? Men get it too and you might not even know it, it looks like a white deposit under the foreskin or around the head and you will often have an itchy / sensitive possibly sore penis head.

    My daughter is 5 and has had worms before which I have treated by visiting the chemist. she also has ecyzma and recently has been complaining of an itchy bottom. I have examined her and seen nothing. I have taken her to doctors and the doctor had examined her and confirmed she is clear yet she still complains of an itchy bottom. this is sometimes worse following a bath. Is there anything you can suggest as this itch is driving her crazy and upsets her. I have tried antihistemine to stop the itch and cream incase her skin is dry but this does not work. please help.

    I have had an itchy bottom since I had my daughter 3 years ago. I was put on iron tablets in the last few weeks of pregnancy which made me constipated. Since having my daughter I haven't been going to the toilet (number 2) as often as I should. I empty my bowels once a week if I'm lucky. I think this is the cause for my itchy bottom but I'm not completely sure. I've noticed that I itch more at night time which is really horrible as I am too embarrassed to tell my partner, therefore I spend most of my nights downstairs on the sofa. Please can someone recommend something for me to stop this as its ruining my life.

    I've had an itchy anus for about two weeks now. It started off with my bottom getting really sweaty and itchy throughout the day so I tried to keep myself as dry as possible. Now it's itchy all the time and small white stuff has started to appear. Should I go to my doctor or is their anything I can buy to get rid of it?

    I am a 66 year old man, and suffered for many years with itchy bottom and piles,my wife and i look after 1 of our grandaughters 3 days a week, about 6 months ago, like a lot of 0-1 year old,she was a little sore around her bottom and bits, her mum and us applied sudocrem for a few days and it cleared up. I started to, after going to the toilet, wipe myself with toilet paper, wipe myself with fragrance free toilet wipes, clean my bottom area with a small amount of hand gel, and applied a small amount of sudocrem, I did this after each visit to the toilet for a few days. where before i had sore swollen and very red bottom, this was easing, and less itchy, after a couple of weeks, i only did this, morning and night, i have no soreness, swelling or ichyness. I did this without seeing my doctor as i had been given ultraproct to use for years, not needed now,

    i get groups of red itchy spots on my bottom usually around the same time as my periods. my doctor says sometimes people just get these but when they heal they leave red marks and my bottom does not look pretty and i am slightly emmbarressed. hope you can help

    I am in my late forties and one day had an itchy spot on my bottom which then developed into lots of weepy pitted type spots. These then started to heal and left bruise type markings and I am still getting the odd spot coming up. I have never had any spots on my bottom of any kind before. My bottom now looks horrid. I am pre menopausal and on saroxat and and blood pressure tablets. Any ideas as to why this happened. Never been to the doctors as too embarrased!
