Yi Kejun, a physician at Changsha Dongda anorectal Hospital, said that anal pruritus is a common local pruritus, which can be divided into primary pruritus and secondary pruritus. Primary pruritus is not accompanied by primary skin damage, and pruritus is the main symptom. Like Xiao Li, it belongs to secondary pruritus. The reason why hemorrhoids cause itching is that in the process of hemorrhoids development, the volume of hemorrhoids will gradually increase, resulting in discomfort symptoms such as wet anal itching and increased secretion. In addition to hemorrhoids, the following diseases often lead to anal pruritus:
1. Anal eczema
Perianal eczema is limited to the skin around the anus, and a few can involve the perineum, which is often itchy and unbearable.
2. Rectal prolapse
It is often said that rectal prolapse is caused by poor physical fitness or increased pressure around the anus for a long time. Rectal secretions stimulate the anus and cause perianal pruritus.
3. Perianal abscess and anal fistula
Perianal abscess and anal fistula may have pus secretion flowing out, stimulating perianal skin and causing pruritus.
When there are parasites such as pubic lice, Ascaris lumbricoides and Trichomonas vaginalis in the anus due to long-term insufficient sanitation, it will obviously feel itching, especially when sleeping at night.
5. Femoral moss
The disease refers to the pruritus around the anus caused by flocculent epidermal tinea, Trichophyton beardii, Trichophyton rubrum and other fungi. It usually occurs frequently in wet seasons. It is infectious, so you should pay attention to washing clothes separately.
Changsha Dongda anorectal Hospital reminds that there are many reasons for anal pruritus. In addition to hemorrhoids, the above problems also lead to anal pruritus. In case of anal pruritus, do not scratch with your hands. Pay attention to anal hygiene. Eat more light and vitamin rich food in your diet. If the symptoms cannot be relieved, you should go to a professional hospital in time to find out the causes and treat the symptoms symptomatically.
