5. Itchiness on the Anus
If you have a rash on your anus and the itchiness is extremely unbearable, it’s probably a case of hemorrhoids. Research reveals that hemorrhoids are basically tiny protrusions of veins, and they are surrounded by severe inflammation and swelling. These protrusions can be horribly painful and super itchy, hence most patients tend to worsen the damage by failing to curb the need to scratch themselves. Hemorrhoids are fairly common, and they tend to occur because of pregnancy, or chronic constipation.
Hemorrhoids are usually treated by OTC hemorrhoid creams and ointments that help by reducing the itchiness, swelling and numbing the pain. However, if the OTC hemorrhoid creams fail to reduce the protrusions and you can still feel the pain, you must consult your doctor for alternative treatments. In most severe cases, doctors are left with no choice but to perform a surgery.
6. Severe Itchiness & Redness
If you notice a rash that is extremely itchy, and also has bright red scaly patches, chances are that it’s a fungal infection. This kind of fungal infection is very similar to ailments like jock itch or athlete’s foot, but it usually tends to appear on the derriere.
Research reveals that fungi requires a dark and moist environment to grow without restraints, and it mostly appears on body organs that tend to rub against each other, since this tends to produce heat and friction. This is why the crack between your butt is the perfect location for this infection to thrive.
Doctors usually treat this infection with OTC antifungal creams and ointments, however if the case is severe, a stronger treatment will be in order.
