1 Bump

A BIG tmi here :( AKWARD!!! adult content

I cant even use my screen name on this one, ever since Ive had my baby my bum hole itches. Like a yeast infection there but all the creams and whatever dont help. Its soooo embarrassing and I cant even tell my SO about it. I can wake up in the middle of the night and have to go to the bathroom because it itches so so bad. I guess my question is has anybody else had this problem or an I alone in this awkwardness?

  • You definitely CAN get a yeast infection there, but you would need to use an antifungal cream for a few days to get any real relief. Any antifungal cream, even athlete's foot cream will do the trick, it's all the same stuff.

  • It may be internal hemorrhoids. You should ask your doctor.

  • I was going to say probably hemorrhoids. Get some Tucks Pads or hemorrhoid cream and see if that helps.

  • OMG same here!!! I say it's a combo of external hemorrhoids and Jock itch/yeast infection. If I use the anti-fungal cream it goes away... but keeps coming back - I think I need oral meds but I am to chicken to ask my doc
