I have itching and inflammation of anus for several months.

Customer Question

I have itching and inflammation of anus for several months. I have used hemorrhoid cream on outside and also the Prep H inserts. They don't seem to take away the itching and painful inflammation, though it does reduce size of hemorrhoids. I have used clobetasol on outside for inflammation which works slightly but doesn't address the itching.
Any ideas?

you could have a skin fungal infection from moisture which would need antifungal powder like Nystatin or Tinactin or Lamasil to treat a fungal skin infection

if you are having leakage of rectal mucus or fluid, you may need to do kegel exercises to strengthen your anal sphincter to prevent leakage.
