How often and how long did you use the Timodine cream cream?
If it is a yeast infection it will take a long time to completely clear the infection and it not come back. Since it came back in 3 days then it was not cured, just calmed down and relieved the misery. Keep after the problem, using the cream as directed and for a longer period of time. It is not unusual to take 3 weeks or longer to clear a yeast infection. Yeast is normal in the intestines, causes problems when there are to much yeast in an area.
Eat yogurt with live enzymes, drink buttermilk, and check out acidolphus to help reduce amount of yeast in the intestines.
I am not a medical professional, speaking from experience only.
its an itch and more of a burn for 20 mins or so after use. but it starts from the first point of exit. like a sharp poike of a needle when "it" first come out.
Been dilema between ignoring it or letting the physician know during the next phys.
rather get something to stop the burn and itch after wipe but don't want the "deluxe package" deal at the doctor's. i'd hate to have someone even just peeking. esp. if everything was actually ok an djust from cleaning to hard.
during a phys with a new doctor, would the question about bowel habits come up? if it does, debating if i can avoid the "extra mile" by not mentioning about it to hopefully avoid being checked.
You never mentioned how old you were. This is important when dealing with the colon. It could be, that one; you ate something like corn, peanuts or something that doesn't get totally digested. On the way out it scraped your rectum or two; when wiping you may have scratched the outside of your rectum. Enough that the skin tries to heal it self by scabbing over. This would cause intense itching in this area. Even minor scarring could occur possibly from a minor scrape from heavy tissue. Wipe with very very soft tissue. Eat a diet that it easily digestable. Stay away from foods that pass right through the intestines like corn, ruffage or peanuts etc. Drink plenty of water to flush your bowels.
Use Vaseline to keep the skin moist and to prevent it from scabbing over. If it's really painful, maybe a prep H cream could help relieve the itch and keep it moist until it heals.
What I think from your posts, is it got scraped, caused a very small tear or scratch. But the over wiping from tissue dried out the area, caused the redness and irritated it. Tissue does this. It will dry out that area very well keeping it from healing properly and causing it to scab becuase it's so dry. Thus, causing the itching.
But don't rule out hemroids. Which is anal bleeding. When you wipe if your not seeing blood on the tissue it may not be hemroids.
So, I would try a change in diet, vaseline and softer tissue and see if it improves in a week. If not, then definetly bring it up with your doc and have him take a look.
You don't have to be shy about it. That's part of life.
