  • lots of fiber, tucks, warm baths and Anusol over Prep H. Works better but Prep H has a better marketing campaign. Also, if it's really bad, your OB can do something for you.

  • You need a good exorcist. Your body is trying to expel the demons that have taken residence in your colon, but you obviously need help. In the meantime, I'd probably start flogging myself to take my mind off the itchiness.

  • Why on Earth would someone call an ob for 'roids? Are you growing a baby up in there or something?

    Itch: Witch Hazel. The old toothbrush idea isn't half bad. Maybe you could try the old gerbil up the arse cure.
