Hi, 35 yr old male.... about 7 months ago my anus starting itching once or twice during the day and quite bad at night, after looking about on the web I tried hemaroid creams and pin worm treatments.
Neither worked after 2 weeks of use. I then went to my Dr who gave me a mild steriod cream.....ouch!! after 24hrs it was 100 times worse and my skin started peeling... after a few days of no creams it went back to "normal itching" I then tried evey cream I could get for skin conditions because about this time my groin (inbetween my thighs and groin) and armpits were now itching and my skin up to my back also... I tried fungal creams....no improvement. Went back to another Dr who said can't see any rash/hemaroids etc try using nappy (diaper)creams.
Have tried a few nappy creams, no change. waited a few weeks and went a 3rd time to the Dr, who said the same again but gave me a steriod fungal cream....yes you guessed, made it worse!. By now I 'm getting very desperate, read up some more on the web and all I do at the moment is wash using special soap and just use moisturiser, its improved a little but still itches, and is sore from intense scratching.....anyone had/have the same or know what it could be?...living in hope jay.
