What Causes Irritation And Itching In Pubic Area And Around Anus?
It may be an infection or allergy. May need lab tests to confirm diagnosis.
I understand the concern you must be having towards your health.
I would like to explain a few possible causes for the itching in the pubic areas and the anal area.
One common cause can be an allergy. If you have recently changed the clothes you have been wearing or began to use a new soap, it is possible that you the allergy is due to that. Using a new soap or wearing new clothing can trigger white blood cells to release histamine which causes the irritation and itching in the area.
It is a good idea to not use any new product or clothes. Also, it would be a good idea to see a pharmacist to get anti-itch cream to help with the irritation.
Another possible cause is jock itch or a fungal infection. In this, there will be itching along with some discoloration of the area. In some cases, there is also some discharge or oozing of fluid.
A few things that help with jock itch are keeping the area clean and dry and wearing loose and breathable clothing. Washing your clothes in hot water will help kill the fungus and reinfection.
Also, it would be a good idea to see a pharmacist to get anti-fungal cream for the area.
If the itching and irritation persist for more than 2 weeks, it would be a good idea to see a doctor. You might need strong anti-fungal or anti-biotics to help you. It is also a good idea to see a doctor if you develop a fever.
I hope I have answered your query. If you have further questions, I will be happy to help.
