yes I am blessed with an itchy ahem behind. Had loads of tests to rule out piles, fissure etc (including camera up my bottom, nice not!) which came on a couple of months after giving birth. Its now been over 3 years and things havent improved, whole area sore and itchy despite making changes including only soap and not bath oils, cotton pants and washing powder for sensitive skin. Seeing gp this week for appointment with dermatologist as everything hes prescribed has made the "condition" worse. Really just wondering if anyone else has had this for any length of time (can you beat my 3 year record??) and if theres any hope at all or I have to put up with this for the rest of my life. Really hope not, its wearing me down.
