Many men are embarrassed because their anus is wet and itchy. They are embarrassed to scratch in public, causing men to fidget. Most anal damp itching is caused by bad living habits, such as failure to pay attention to personal hygiene, contact with allergic substances and eating allergic food. However, if there is always anal pruritus and dampness, we should be highly vigilant against diseases.
1. Anal fistula or perianal abscess
Anal fistula and perianal abscess are common anorectal diseases, which will stimulate the local outflow of a large amount of secretory fluid. The secretory fluid can directly stimulate the skin around the anus, making the local moist and itchy. In this case, it must be treated by surgery.
2. Anal eczema
Anal eczema is a common skin problem. Staying in a hot and humid environment for a long time, too much moisture and scratching the anus with hands will cause anal eczema. Itching around the anus is its typical symptom.
3. Rectal prolapse
Rectal prolapse is easy to occur in postpartum and middle-aged and elderly people. Squatting for a long time can increase the pressure around the anus and make the rectum prolapse from the anus. Rectal secretion can directly stimulate around the anus, resulting in anal pruritus.
Hemorrhoids is a common anorectal disease. Pain and bloody stool are its typical symptoms. However, when external hemorrhoids or mixed hemorrhoids appear, the venous mass will expand in the anus, resulting in local moisture and itching.
Failure to pay attention to the hygiene and cleanliness of the anal part, being infected by pubic lice or trichomonas and Ascaris can lead to anal pruritus. In addition, the occurrence of fungal, viral or bacterial infections, perianal neurodermatitis, etc. can also lead to anal pruritus.
6. Tinea cruris
Tinea cruris is a skin problem caused by fungal infection around the anus, such as Trichophyton rubrum or Trichophyton flocculus. It will be infectious and may infect the body and hands.
7. Reverse psoriasis
Reverse psoriasis is a type of psoriasis. There are no scales in the skin lesions. It tends to occur in the inter wiping parts, such as reproductive organs, armpits, groin and perineum. It presents periodic attacks, especially the most severe itching at night.
8. Atopic dermatitis
In addition to anal pruritus, atopic dermatitis is also accompanied by more skin markings, skin thickening, exfoliative papules and fibrosis on the epidermis.
First, pay attention to the cleanliness and hygiene of the anus. Men should choose loose and breathable boxers, and should not wear too tight; After each defecation, you must wipe it with toilet paper and rinse the anus with warm water to minimize the risk of infection. Second, develop the good habit of defecating regularly. Go to the toilet and squat whether you have the intention to defecate or not. No matter when you can't hold your stool, it will reduce the sensitivity of the rectum to feces, prolong the residence time of feces in the intestine, dry stool, and even induce hemorrhoids or anal fistula.
If men always have wet and itchy anus, they should go to the hospital as soon as possible to improve the examination and targeted treatment. In addition, men can't sit on the wet ground for a long time, otherwise it will increase the humidity of anus, resulting in infection; Reduce sedentary time, especially in hot summer. Sitting for a long time will make local areas soaked with sweat, stimulate the skin around the anus, and then lead to eczema or abscess. Exercise more at ordinary times, which can promote blood circulation and improve disease resistance.
