Is Your Embarrassing Problem an Anal Itch?
According to Dr Phil Hammond from Embarrassing Bodies the most common problem for people logging onto their site is that ever embarrassing condition called anal itching. And we’re not talking about just a little itch that needs a good scratch here. For some people it’s a condition that can be persistent, lasting for months and even years and affecting their lives.
The US News recently termed it the ‘itch of which we dare not speak’. It’s a problem, and it might be getting worse, but we don’t really want to tell our friends and family what it is. Some of us can’t even pluck up the courage to mention the dreaded anal itch to our doctors.
And, according to some medical forums, doctors often don’t have much of an idea what the cause is either. It might be something that will come and go. It could be down to faecal matter getting left in the anal area. Or it could be something more insidious like pin worms or even an underlying medical condition.
If you are suffering from an embarrassing itch, then there are a few simple things you need to keep in mind.
First of all you could start by brushing off that embarrassment and think how wonderful a thing the anus actually is. It consists of the internal and the external anal sphincters that are used to control the exit of faeces from the body. Without somewhere efficient to get rid of all that unwanted stuff we would literally drown in our own waste products. It is, quite simply, a wonder of modern evolution.
So what do you need to do?
Whilst scratching that embarrassing itch may well seem like a good idea at the time, and for the first few minutes it might even feel absolutely wonderful, the simple act of doing so can cause the condition to get worse. For an intermittent anal itch, that’s fine. But for a more chronic condition you probably need something a little more sophisticated.
Keeping yourself clean is a good idea but excessive cleaning, particularly with the wrong soap products can also lead to that anal itch getting progressively worse. Try to make sure your anal area stays dry because warm and moist places are a haven for various bacteria that can make your condition worse.
The trick is to find something that will soothe the condition and stop it getting worse – an anal care cream that uses all natural ingredients to help take the edge of that itch, with peppermint to cool you down and emu oil, calendula and grape seed among others to act as antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti-itching agents. There’s even some sweet clover in there to get that blood flowing.
Regular use of a good anal itching cream can make all the difference between an uncomfortable day at the office and getting on with your life and work. It’s affordable, easy to apply and just about the best thing for your itching anus there has ever been.
