So, like a year ago I suffered from kinda constant diahrreas, like once every 15 days, but that seems not to be happening anymore.
Sometimes when I go to the bathroom, and I wipe myself (I wipe kinda harshly though, like really hard cuz I wanna leave nothing there, and I think doing this is not good)a really small stain or mini dot of blood appears, but looks like if I wouldve just injured slightly myself.
Also, I suffer from itchiness on my anus, not all the time and it doesnt hurt, also I can resist to it, and try not to scratch it. My stools are not redish nor have any sort of blood, they are kinda dark, but not black.
I am assuming it may be worms, what do u think?
Also, what easy test could I take, a feeces exam?
Thank you all in advance

  • Sounds like it could be Pruritus Ani, which is what I've been dealing with for several years. I could hardly be at work all day because my anus would not stop itching. It started taking over my social life so I experimented with a ton of different products with no luck. Then, I found this product online called Pranicure...it's an ointment but not like any of the others I've tried because it ACTUALLY WORKS!! I've been using it for over 6 months now and only have to apply it a couple of times per week...give it a shot, there is hope!!
