Not sure if its piles or not but its driving me crazy.
Cant feel anything but SOOOOOO itchy esp at night,keeps me awake most of the night.
Tried some creams and ointments but dont do much good.

Get a family pack of Ovex, wash all your bedding, and pyjamas, don't share towels and wear knickers to bed too. Hoovering and dusting the whole house is usually part of the routine too.

You might be able to see them , you might not. They are tricky buggers! Did your dr suggest it might be worms when you saw her?

No she just said "theres no point looking because piles are inside i wont be able to see anything."
I just assumed it was piles as it started after the birth of my DD.It never occurred to me it could be worms YUK,i will go get some stuff today, thanks,

If pile cream and ointments aren't working, then it may not be piles. It could, though, thrush as this will also cause itching - not just vaginal itching.

Try some Canestan and see if that helps.
