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??
Hi I have a red itchy kinda rash on shins of both legs and also alp over the bottom of my right foot which us now coming up my ancle. It's been treated as exema and scriosis with different types of steroid cream but nothing is curing it.bits really red flaky and itchy and occasionally hurts to walk on. It looks like burns. Please can you help
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.

what is the best thing for an itchy bottom
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?
Hey, around the bottom of my vagina it is red, sour and itchy. Also a layer of skin is missing as I've been scratching. I don't know what it is or what to do. Someone help please.
Hello I have had this before and I would advice to go to the doctor as it can be something serious however when I had these symptoms I had thrush Hope this helps
