Tea Tree Oil

[YEA]  I suffered miserably for months with anal itch. I don't know how it came about, it wasn't poor hygeine or anything that can be explained. I went to my physician, a specialist and was prescibed several medications that only made the situation worse. They couldn't explain it either. They just said keep the area dry. The itch was insane, I would come home from work and literally sit in front of the computer researching for hours how to beat my pain. It started in August, it ended in recently this June. TEA TREE OIL. Don't dillute it. 3-5 drops on a cotton ball, hold to the area for 1 minute. Wait five minutes then apply some corn starch to the area. twice a day should work, or as many times as needed. Yes it will burn at first, BUT it is followed with a cooling sensation. In some instances the itch comes on for a few minutes because it is such a strong astringent that it may irritate the skin.

An example of how this works: I had gone on a horrible drinking binge this past thursday followed by 3 cups of coffee that friday. Alcohol and Coffee are horrible for my condition. Once I go to the bathroom, I'm itching all day. Anyway, I had a date that night and didn't want to break it. Half way through the date I couldn't even think straight and was clearly bothered by the itching. I was ready to call it a night, but we decided to go shopping at the mall. I couldn't take it anymore so I thought I would buy some tea tree oil (knowing that it worked previously) and run to the mens room to apply it. Luckily a local nutrition store had it. Thanks to the Tea Tree oil the date continued for another 3 hrs, my tush felt 100 percent better... God Bless this oil.

Highly Recommended.

[YEA]  I use toothpaste on my anus before I sleep, leave it for 4 minutes and then wash off. Most of my nights are itch-free, but if I dont use the toothpaste the itch comes back.

[YEA]  For anal itch, pierce a vitamin E caplet and apply the contents liberally on the anal area. Immediate relief.

[YEA]  Was being driven insane by this until I read about piercing a cap and squeezing the oil on the afflicted area. It was instant relief. I now include a daily E capsule for both ends.

Witch Hazel, Diaper Rash Cream

[YEA]  Itchy Butt: I also suffered from this. Two things worked. The first was witch hazel. Saturate a cotton ball and apply to the infected area. Slight sting but worth it. What many don't realize is that sometimes toilet paper alone doesn't do the job and that any amount of (stuff) left behind (pun intended) may cause a reaction to that sensitive area. I suggest using either flushable wipes, or wet the T.P. and wipe again. Also, good old baby diaper rash formula works wonders. If you are still having problems, consider the possibility of diet and/or parasite. Consider a
parasite/worm natural cleanse product that contains black walnut hull and extract. Good luck!

I have had a problem with my anus being itchy for about two weeks now. I'm not completely sure as to the cause of this horrid and embarrassing problem but it does seem to occur when I have a loose, watery bowel movement. My mom believes it is due to the acidity in my diet, which burns the sensitive skin around the anus and causes irritation, but I can't be sure. I will work to actually curing my problem in the future, but for now, all I crave is a remedy. In the beginning my mother suggested icing the area. I agreed and felt relief soon enough. I lie on my back and wedge a half inch thick hard ice pack between my cheeks and it seems to do the trick within ten minutes. I make sure to keep a piece of clothing between ice and skin, and make sure not to ice for to long or you will get frostbitten. But who carries around a frozen icepack with them? So I needed something portable. And on top of that I am still horribly itchy for those ten minutes.

So I read online in multiple places about witch hazel, and asked my mom to pick me up some. She did and I began using it. It didn't work at first, but I don't believe I applied it properly. I just used it again, accompanied with an ice pack and it seemed to do the trick within five. When I applied it this time I soaked a thick piece of toilet paper in it, sat on the toilet and held it to the area. It did sting a tad in the beginning but it gets better. I still have doubts about witch hazel used on its own or as a cure, but it would certainly work in a pinch or coupled with ice. Hope this helped!

Anal itch may be the sign of low circulation in the area. Yogasana has prove useful in such cases. The name is Uddiana Bandha (Abdominal Lift). Google and you would know the technique.

Do not be alarmed if you experience pain. It is positive sign.

Zinc Oxide

Anal Itch finally gone. I am 46 and have had the miserable itch since I was 18 years old. I would be embarrassed to tell you everything I have tried but finally found a solution. DESITIN cream (used on baby butts to prevent rash). This is a thick cream that I use once each morning. All the other creams disolve throughout the day or when you wipe and the itch quickly returns. I have gone from feeling like I have poison ivy to forgetting there was ever an itch. I would have paid $1,000 dollars for a remedy but this really works. Good luck.

[YEA]  Itchy butt: Try Zinc Oxide, It is often in remedies for diaper rash. I used it on my kids and when I had that same problem, it worked on me.

I have had an itchy butthole for as long as I can remember. Tried EVERYTHING, creams, vinagars, oils, cleaning etc, NOTHING works. Until one day I bought some over the counter allergy medicine, ya know? for like pollen and sneezing and stuff, well it also says stops itchy skin conditions. Now I'm convinced, it must have been an allergy or something all this time, once I started taking this stuff, (one small pill a day) gone! No more sticking my finger in my buttcrack all day, and I can sleep once again. Lovin' it!!

[YEA]   But Itch, or Anul Puritus, I am concerned at the comments from someone about stopping probiotics. I have suffered from this condition for 30 years, doctors have no idea what causes it and go for the old "don't scratch, keep it clean, don't drink coffee ETC ETC. All Rubbish. My research has narrowed it down to a lack of good bacteria in part of the colon, the lack of these bacteria cause a higher alkaline excretions with stools and this causes the itch. This is why some people get help from the use of ACV because it is acid. But all of these treatments are like the stupid doctors only treat the symtom. To treat the problem we need to get the Bifidofolus back into the gut. One link I think it was springer link put me onto a research paper that had people use Malt Soup Extract and most of these people got great results in stopping the itch. But MSE is almost impossible to get so I use Malt Extract and probotics. The best thing to stop the itch is capsicum cream at about 25% stings like hell for a short period then the P factor cut the itch right out.

My husband had anal itching for years, and years. Finally I cracked down and told him he was taking acidophilis. He was amazed! He couldn't believe that I knew what he needed when he explained the problem well enough and I put him on a good probiotic. He found after that, just wiping w/tissue fixed the problem instead of his having to leave a wet washcloth in the floor for me to wash every day. But, he'd always had to wash well w/water to keep from itching terribly. Sure smoothed out a rough spot in our marriage! Lol

All the remedies, salves, and other solutions on this site for everything from itchy butt to racing stripes can be answered with one thing. Washing!! If you search "bidet bottle", you will find information. Read all about the centuries old culture of water and all the good things about water hygiene starting with being clean as can be and also to detect early signs of colorectal issues or digestive issues. See how it improves your life and your relationships. It is a great and environmentally good alternative to wiping with paper. Remember, colorectal cancer is the #1 killer among non smokers. No fanfair or pink ribbons for this cancer, spread the word.

I'm sorry your bum is the cause of so much pain. I suffered for a year with your affliction, but I found the cure.

1. ) Use only Tucks Hemorrhoidal Medicated Pads, or better yet, a generic brand.

2. ) Take 1 Loratadine (10 mg) per day. (Or, if you want the name brand, buy Claritin and enrich the capitalists.)

This will help you. Your life will be better.

Yours Truly,

A Formerly Itchy Comrade

I went to dr a few times on this issue, ive tried prep h which helped temporarily, but it only came back, when I went to doc first time he gave me some kind of antifungal sumthincazole was the antifungal I cant remeber it helped but the itch returned. my last trip to doc he gave me this big tub of salve. I used it for like a couple days and the itch never returned again I mean rarely like its been two years now. The doc gave me like four refills on this stuff but I barely used a few days of it, it comes in a 1lb jar 453. 6 grams all I know is the itch has never came back if it does just put a little cream on it and its gone instantly. anyways the cream was "Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP, 0. 1%" This stuff worked I think the stuff only costs me like 4 dollars at most so its cheap and it works. Good luck it cured my itch. GOOD LUCK ask you doc for this stuff as it worked for me after all the failed attempts prior
