Anal itching

Anal itching is the skin itching of anus and perianal area and is a fairly common disorder.

The causes of anal itching according to the various sources:

 

  • Idiopathic pruritus (there are no apparent specific reasons; due to the reduction of sphincter tonus, a small amount of mucus reaches perianal skin, causing irritation);
  • Anorectovaginal diseases;
  • Hemorrhoids, anal fissures and fistulas, genital warts, sphincter dysfunction, tumors, vaginal secretions, etc;
  • Dermatological diseases – psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, atopic eczema, lichen planus, etc;
  • Contact dermatitis caused by ointments, deodorants, powders, soaps, allergic reactions, etc;
  • Infections – fungal (Candida), bacterial;
  • Parasites – trichomoniasis, scabies, E. vermicularis;
  • Peroral antibiotics - tetracycline, erythromycin, etc;
  • Systemic diseases – diabetes, liver diseases;
  • Personal hygiene – insufficient or excessive;
  • Heat and humidity – the narrow clothing, warm climate, obesity, intense physical activity;
  • Nutrition – drinks (tea, coffee, beer, wine, etc.), spicy food;

The treatment is selected depending on the cause of anal itching. The most common cause is a fungal or other damage caused by the infection.

The vast experience of proctologists working at “The Oxford Medical” clinic allows carrying out the detailed examination with the identification of the actual cause of anal itching.

The treatment of the anal itching is primarily aimed at the very causes of the disorder, and the exclusion of local adverse impacts such as scratching, excessive hygiene and tight clothes.

Treatment also largely depends on the stage and severity of the disorder, as well as on the individual tolerance to various drugs. Anal itching is a disease that can be caused by the whole complex of different factors. That is why a large number of details are taken into account before the start of the treatment. Efficiently selected complex treatment method can help to get rid of anal itching completely.

In most cases, self-treatment of anal itching is aimed solely at addressing of the effects like skin irritation. This gives only temporary results. Inveterate forms of anal itching cause significant complications such as eczema, bleeding, ulcers and the transition of the disease to the chronic stage.

After the appearance of specific symptoms of this disorder, you should not delay a visit to the doctor.
