    intractable pruritus ani

    5 month sufferer after using Tuck wipes recommended by dermatologist. If you have intermittent infammation and non infectious pruritus ani avoid using soaps (possibly spectroderm gel OK) and wipes (wet toilet paper better) as they are full of chemicals.

    Butt Itch

    I suffered with this condition for almost 2 years. Finally broke down and went to rectal doctor.

    Permanent itch fix - no drugs, no creams

    It's GONE! No drugs, no creams - FREEDOM from itchiness

    For about 10 years (I'm 62) I've suffered from itchy-bum. I got quite used to always carrying around a tube of LipIce (South Africa lip balm - best I found) to annoint my little bum hole after pooing.
