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.

  • Hurrah! Somebody with exactly the same as me! I am losing my mind with this (anal, groin, armpits)and have no idea what to try next. Steroid cream, diflucan tablets, anti-fungal cream, haemmoroid cream and suppositories, different soaps and washing powders etc. all haven't worked although with me, the steroid cream does stop the itching. Don't wanna be putting that down there for the rest of my life though! The dry itchiness of mine actually goes onto my penis as well. My sex life is now non existent. Please someone reply with a magic cure or at least some ideas. Thanks.

  • I feel for you guys!! A chronic itchy anus has altered my life for the worse in the past few years, but I finally took a leap of faith and tried this product called PRANICURE...I too was looking for a miracle, and this is the only ointment that works to truly relieve you of those exact symptoms that I had!
