hello, im hoping for some advice. About 8 weeks ago i started noticing a mild itch in and around my anus after a bowel movement. it wasnt intense enough for me to scratch but still noticeable. i found that the itching would completely stop instantly if i was sat or standing still or laying down. the itch would only return if i started walking, but wouldnt be constant. but again still not enough to make me want to scratch the hell out of it. it was more of an annoyance.
a first visit to a GP said they thought it was fungal and gave me Daktacort cream. used for a week but no real change. went back to gp who looked and thought maybe an internal hemmeroid. got some suppositories for that with a mild steroid in it also. again no real change.
so i am at a loss as to what this is. i noticed it began a couple of weeks after a course of antibiotics so i wonder if its related or is it just dryness maybe? i do suffer with eczema on other areas of the body. But why does it only itch when i walk? i could sit for 10 hours and not feel a thing until i walk. what is it?
any advice would be appreciated
