Yes, I probably use the wipes too much and had no idea that was contributing to my problem. I am using the A&D ointment and it worked overnight!
Hi I just joined this site and I've got to tell you that I had the exact same symptoms as you except I also had an awful tear in my anus hole and another tear in my perinuim area (between bum and vag) it wasn't getting any better and it was itchy sometimes and hurt etc. I was really surprised to find that when I stopped using baby wipes regularly so did the tears and itching. So turns out the wipes were drying me out badly and causing me to tear. I still use wipes a little here and there as a refresher when needed but not everyday.Hope that helps.

Georgia, Nothing is too personal on this BB---haha! I only wear white cotton panties (boring)! And my doctor told me to only use Dove soap so that's what i do but I think the culprit here are the wipes which I use everyday.
Tiss I realize this question might be personal, however it is related to itching of the anal and rectal area. Do you wear underwear made of anything other than 100 % cotton? I used to wear silk briefs, specifically during the summer when going to the beach and thins like that. I switched to Nylon. Nylon still caused me terrible itching down there aside from the itching I have from hemorrhoids, and then I switched to all cotton underwear and the itching, except for itching related to my hemorrhoids is gone.

I misread your post. My apologies. Sometimes when I don't have time for an enema or suppository but need relief I will put a sliver of Dove up there and it gets things going in a few minutes.
Did I say not to use Dove soap? I meant to use non scented Dove.

I see my doctor for my annual exam soon so he'll see it anyways! Not like I can hide that area from him! What are biological washing powers?
also i forgot- dont use biological washing powder as this can cause itching in funny places- where it gets hot- get non bio- this is essential!!!!! esepcially on sensetive skins.you ned to see the doctor because good anti icthing creams come only with a pescription (in england) just be assertive and explain to your doctor that you dont want him (or her) to look at it- youd rather just explain it- and they should be total fine with this- if not- change doctors as tey should be. nine times out of ten youll get a doctor that understands your embarrassment and will pescribe a cream to help wihout needing to see it. and anyway- even if he did see it- i can garantuee you hes seen it all and done it all and is way, way past caring.
