I am not sure if I have hemorrhoids or I just have an anal, rectal itch. I feel like I am on FIRE!! My anus and the area around there in burning. I take good means to kept my self clean and sit down tub baths several times a day, but it still hurts
I feel like if I could make it stop that I would feel human again. My poor hubby thinks that I am on my period as I am very bitchy and fussy.
Is there anything that I can use to make this hurt feel better, short of going to my doctor and let her look at my bottom and write a prescription?
If the Epsom Salts are not conveinient for you you could also try mineral soap and gel. I found a good product at http://deewee.themastersmiracle.com The gel is good for when you are on the run and can't stop for a bath and after a BM.
I told a friend of mine, who is a DO, that I believe my hemmorhoids were caused by a chronic pinworm infection, because it felt to me like the worms were drilling holes in my anal tissues, causing them to be weak. Being prone to constipation, my hemmorhoids always popped out whenever I strained to go to the bathroom, or when I couldn't go for a few days. He said "That could very will be, indeed."
