Customer Question

Hi, I currently have some symptoms that I've had on and off for the past year or two, it usually lasts a week or two and then goes away. I have severe itching inside and around my anus, the odd thing is that when I scratch to relieve the itching, the head of my penis itches and vice versa. There is no skin inflamation on the penis and it only itches when I scratch my anus.

No I have not.

It would be ideal for you to Apply Calamine lotion at bed time over area of itch regularly for three days and take bath at morning , repeat for 3 days , hopefully this will go away .

Possibility of Scabies could be there , so this lotion will help you to overcome issue .

I don't feel like scabies is a possibility since a) I've had this before and b) there is no inflamation or blisters
Expert:  dr abid replied 8 days ago.

Scabies present with dry rash without blister or redness , blister only occurs when there is inflammation or superimposed infection .

Dry itch is scabies in most of the cases .
