Welcome to Just Answer.
Do you have any discharge from anus?
How is your bowel habit?
not bad but sometimes constipated and have to strain . I do have some bad hemrohoids.
When did it start?
I was on vacation when the itching started but I just ignored it for the most. I was thinking maybe it was from different toilet paper usage.
Did you apply any medicine?
Only just now. I just put on some neosporine and desitine ointment (used for diaper rash) It was still itching is why I also applied the desitine on top of the other. I started by cleaning the area with medicated wipes but just now. I've done nothing until just now because I just noticed the redness there.
The redness with itching can be due to a few causes.
There can be a fungal infection.
Allergy or dermatitis can be be there.
In some cases it can be due to a worm infestation like pinworm.
You can apply antifungal cream like clotrimazole.
Hydrocortisone cream can be added.
If you do not find any improvement, please get an examination by doctor.
Avoid any irritation, colored tissue paper or soap in that area.
Wash it with plain water after using toilet.
Moist tissue paper should be used instead of dry ones.
Can I get those medications over the counter? Is this anything I need to be concerned with if having sex?
You can get those over the counter.
I would advise to avoid sex till you see improvement.
Do you know if these medications work fast and is one better than the other for best, XXXXX XXXXX?
Those usually work fast.
Combination of them would work better.
If you have any further query, please feel free to ask.
