My son has been complaining about an itchy bum, soreness when he has a bowel movement and he has a red solid rash around his anus which seems pretty raw. I haven't spotted any pinworms but wondering if it might be a yeast infection?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

It's been since the day after Halloween, I wondered if it might be related to candy, since he seems to react to sugar...

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My son says it really hurts after a bowel movement
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
he is 5 years old

This can be anal fissure. This is a tiny ulcer which may have been caused by an hard bowel motion or straining. A local Lidocaine application may help. But it needs to be seen by his pediatrician. Ask him not to strain during bowel motion and encourage more intake of liquids.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
