Really itchy bottom

blush

Don't think it's threadworms ... but it's the right 'place' (anus.) It is itchy to the point of actually hurting.

Any help before I shame myself in public ?!

I'd probably treat myself for threadworms anyway, wash bedding/towels etc and see how I was in a few days.

It might be piles.

You can get some soothing cream otc at the chemist.

I'm pregnant at present and I don't think it's advised to take.

I'm fairly sure it's not piles - have seen them before shock cripes!

It is a treatable condition. If it doesn't go away quickly then go to the doctor and get it fixed.

Oh didn't know you are pregnant so definitely ignore my advice!

Thank you smile Rattle no worries; I should have said in my OP!

It could be piles. I'm pregnant and have just one tiny 'lump' there which flares up sometimes blush. It is quite itchy sometimes.

countryandchickens Fri 17-Jul-15 17:00:49

I always thought piles were massive!

Would someone else DH be able to tell ...?

Rosieliveson Fri 17-Jul-15 19:46:06

I can feel mine and can also see if I crouch over a compact mirror blush
It's just a really small 'extra' lump at the entrance to my bottom.

It's really hurting blush sad

DH has looked blush and confirmed it is not piles.

Ow.

Hmm, could be a fissure.
Have you been constipated and had trouble going? (Strange question from a random onliner I know!) Sometimes you can get a small tear which is itchy and can be sore as it heals. May be worth mentioning to GP or midwife.

Piles can be internal so he wouldn't be able to see them.

Get along to the gp. No need to suffer this. There are things that will help.

Thanks; I had a massive poo a few days ago so it might have been that. Really hurts!
