Hi All,

For almost more than 2 years i have been suffering from on and off rectal itching which is mostly on the outside and often spreads till outer lip of vagina. Tried all ointments, referred by GP to specialist and no physical signs or issue found.

Vaseline is my only relief when itching gets severe.. its worse in nighttime ! Pls advise what can i do or ointment i can use which is effective and safe. Pls note i am also trying for pregnancy recently so need to be extra careful on what i use.

Are you sure it's not being caused by worms?

If it's worse at night then it's worms.

Has the doctor never suggested it could be worms?

Sounds like threadworms. Even if you are unsure try Ovex. It's inexpensive, works like a dream, and no harm done should it be something else !

Rectal itching can be piles.
And if you are scratching it the irritation can spread to the vulva.
It could also be an allergy as I got this when using baby wipes on my bum.

As an aside I wonder if it could be something as simple as hairs growing in sensitive areas?

Worms or piles
