I was recently diagnosed with IBS and have had diarrhea (no constipation) for about 6 months. I have this incredible itchiness around the anus and I haven't read that that is a symptom. Is it?

Hi MommaoI seem to remember reading somewhere that that is a symptom. I have had it many times. You can get very small cuts due to the "condition". That could cause the itchyness. Try some tucks or even cortizone cream to help. I remember many nights just wanting to "scratch". Drove me nuts.Good luck!

hi mommao2ive had ibs-d for 9 years and a itchy bottom must be a symptom. i have piles so ive always put the itchyness down to my piles being irritated and now healing. cortizone cream is the best. it could be small cuts but if you have piles inside it could be those. hope you get releif soon. i know its not nice.
