Life with IBS is a constant struggle, but then having chronic anal itching on top of that…an absolute nightmare. I, too, have been suffering for about 10 years and tried some similar diets, which helped with the diarrhea but didn't do anything for the anal itch (pruritus ani). Luckily, I found this ointment that's only available online called PRANICURE and it's changed my life!! It heals the area and stops the itching so now I can finally live a normal life! Google Pranicure and give it a try, it's the ONLY thing that works.
