So I went to see my doctor yesterday morning because I was at my wits end with this discomfort. I got advice from someone on here to apply baby powder to my anus to kill eggs and stop itching. I did that the day before my appointment and it helped.
The powder definitely helps with the itching/tingling. It gives me pretty much Instant and long lasting relief. When I showed the doctor some photographs of minuscule white fibres I find occasionally by my back passage she told me they were not worms and seemed certain with this conclusion. I have also showed my mother, with 3 children she would know what threadworms look like and also reassured me that they are not worms. I am inclined to believe them as they do not resemble the google representation of what worms are known to look like and the discomfort is present during the day and barely noticeable at night if present at all, and does not occur in a cycle. I have been taking Ovex like sweets over the last few months, following the strict hygiene recommendations, to no avail as I was still itching up until the BP recommendation. I am still paranoid. I felt a sense of relief following the appointment because the BP has pretty much eliminated that irritating feeling (for now) but I’m so far gone now that I feel my brain is fixed in this state of putting any discomfort back there down to worms that it’s still making me low, I did a Bowel movement earlier in the day and tore myself up in the process, so now it stings and burns and I can feel a slight throbbing, the BP does help, and I know it’s just another anal fissure but my mind is getting me in a state. I applied more BP and behold another tiny tiny white fibre. You can barely see them, they’re pretty much invisible if the angle isn’t perfect, so unless this is a new breed of evolved TW I have no clue what they are...As they do not wriggle. If not worms What is it that I am seeing? I am at a loss.
