Short of wiping my arse with sandpaper, what can I do? It's worse (tmi) after a poo.

Piles?

Nope. Doc on Thursday had a peek and said just a small skin tag.

Thread worms.

As above, I've been examined and she saw nothing but a skin tag.

You won't see thread worms during the day

Use a washcloth get yourself really clean

Saw a physio recently because of prolapses. She saw my bum at same time because of similar issues (also takes me ages to wipe). I have no piles but skin tags and get splits in skin which itch a lot. She suggested roid cream for 6 weeks. Helps tighten skin which stops the creases a bit so they heal better and don’t split. Still trying to remember to do it so can’t yet report back

Could be thrush? I've had it, nightmare sad

Could always try a bit of nappy cream? Might ease the itchiness in the short term.

It would be worth taking the treatment for thread worms anyway. It is cheap and you can buy it OTC.
Also consider allergies to soap/shampoo/conditioner.
If you wash your hair in the shower, turn around and bend your head forward so the shampoo and conditioner doesnt go anywhere near your bottom. (Sorry TMI).

I had an issue with thrush there. Wormed myself and sudocrem didn’t work. Canesten did.

Do you shave in that area? Could be that

Have a read of this - lots of advice. Mysterious bum itch is a real thing (if that is any help, probably not).

This happens to me sometimes and I find its a bit of a vicious circle, once I start to itch i can't stop. It is a 'thing'.
I use something like lanacane or pile cream and it settles down.

Take threadworm stuff anyway. I dose my kids a few times a year....

Itch scratch syndrome?

Take Ovex for threadworms. You might as well and it probably is.
