I've been dealing with this unbearable itch for 7 or so months now. My anus itches but ONLY when I walk! It seems like the chaffing or friction activates the itching. Most people that I read about with this condition usually say that they get this itch most worst at night but this has not been my experience.
I love to hike with my dog but this condition makes it difficult to even go for a walk around the block. I am miserable. I am a 27 y/o female. I don't feel like this is a common issue for someone my age.
I have tried:
Cutting out coffee
Wiping with water wipes
Wearing cotton underwear
Using a shower head to wash that area after a BM
Calmoseptine ointment (worked at first but then stopped working)
Nothing thus far has worked. Does anyone have a clue what the cause could be? I have looked down there and there's nothing abnormal looking. No redness either. I want to fix the cause, not treat the symptom.
I plan to see a dermatologist to help me but that won't be for a while. Thank you to anyone that has any insight. I want my life back! 😦
