I wish there was a board for Incredibly Embarassing Questions...
This is a very gross question, I know, but I'm desperate for advice.
For the past few days, I've had a strange and uncomfortable sensation in my anal region. It's not really an itch, more like a tingly, crawling, tickly type sensation. Very hard to describe. It even feels a little bit like leakage, but it's not.
I thought it might be pinworms, but it's not really itchy per se, and it doesn't get worse at night; it's persistent all day.
I have had hemmorhoids in the past, so maybe this is related. However, my experience with hemmorhoids was very painful, and there's no pain with this.
Are there any other possibilities? Maybe a yeast infection? Or some sort of skin irritation? I do exercise in the heat a lot...maybe it's sweat-related?
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. And sorry if I grossed out anyone out!
