I don't seem to have any trouble using the toilet, but when I'm all done, I get this itching/extreme discomfort in my rectal area.

Sometimes when I wipe there is very small spots of blood ( none in my stool tho ), so small you would have to be lookingfor them to notice them.

The discomfort/itching seems to be on the inside, and it looks normal on the outside.

This has been happening for about a week now.

Any ideas?

I can't get in to see a doctor for atleast a week, so I'm seeking help until then.

  • It's a hemorrhoid, they itch, they bleed, may cause pain during bowel movements. If not visible on the outside, it is likely to be an internal hemorrhoid.

  • It could be Pruritus Ani if you constantly have an itchy anus. In my mind it's a serious medical condition because it can really affect your ability to be comfortable, especially in public. I've tried tons of creams, wipes, etc. over the years and nothing has worked. I then rolled the dice on this product I found on the internet called Pranicure. I couldn't believe how well it works and continues to work. Search for pranicure ointment and give it a shot, I did and could not be happier with the results!!
