Rectal Yeast Infection Symptoms

When it comes to a rectal yeast infection the best thing you can do is become educated about the symptoms to look for. There are typically symptoms of dryness, running, itching, swelling and uncomfortable burning with a rectal yeast infection.

The number of symptoms that you feel during a rectal yeast infection will vary; some may get all the symptoms while others will only get one or two sporadic symptoms.

Antibiotics, soap sensitivity, sexual transmission and pregnancy are some of the most common causes that cause a rectal yeast infection.

You will want to get familiar with the symptoms of a rectal yeast infection so you don’t confuse it with other vaginal infections.

When you start to feel dryness, burning or itching there are a few things that can be causing the symptoms.

Most often these symptoms are a sign of a rectal yeast infection since most women experience a yeast infection during their lifetime and a yeast infection is the most common vaginal irritation.

Although a rectal yeast infection has symptoms that are similar to other problems that can be a little more serious which is why it is important to visit your doctor.

Symptoms To Look For

Itching, redness, burning or swelling in the vaginal area are some of the standard symptoms of a rectal yeast infection.

There may also be a white discharge that looks like cottage cheese, dryness, irritation, pain during sexual intercourse and a burning sensation when urinating.

These symptoms will often occur to a varying degree from slightly painful to extremely uncomfortable.

Some women may also only experience a mild version of these symptoms with a rectal yeast infection.

A rectal yeast infection can be caused by birth control pills, antibiotics, sensitivity to soaps or douches, sexual transmission, pregnancy and diabetes.

The imbalance of the pH levels in the vagina can be affected by any of these which leads to the discomfort of itching and redness.

Often the symptoms of a rectal yeast infection can be cleared up quickly with many over the counter antifungal medications.

Some differences you should look for include a grayish discharge which is a symptom of a bacterial infection and it will often have a fishy odor.

You cannot cure a bacterial infection with over the counter OTC yeast medication.

Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease that is represented by a greenish-yellow discharge.

Vaginitis is another condition similar to a yeast infection, but it is often caused by a sensitivity to perfumed soaps, douches and bubble baths. The condition will usually clear up easily after you discontinue use of the offending product.

  1. r u kidding , that discharge is happing for 3 moths now and i used every antifungal so far , it is NOT easy to cure

  2. @Captured: Rectal Yeast Infection is as easy or difficult to cure as other yeast infections. If you have a discharge for 3 months, you must talk with a doctor because there could be other factors behind the discharge.

  3. This is a very informative page on rectal yeast infection, which can be caused by birth control pills, antibiotics, sensitivity to soaps or douches, STD, pregnancy and diabetes. And its not easy to discuss this with friends or do to a doctor without being sure. This article was useful. Wish more such pages came in the top 10 search results.

  4. wish there was more out there about rectal area problems, glad there’s this. i am waiting for herpes results but doc thinks i may have severe yeast infection – sores and inflammation is all on the back end… had vaginal yeast infections before, got a bikini wax AND like an idiot used a douche, just started bcp – recipe for disaster. or else i have herpes. the great painful waiting game…

  5. I am going to the doctor tomorrow having the same symptoms as Owieee. I know the feeling as I am in great pain too. Hopefully, I will get relief tomorrow.

  6. Not only is this not easy to cure, but in my experience doctors don’t even believe it exists. I had what started as a creepy-crawly feeling and escalated to pain so severe I was lying on the bathroom floor crying after going. It all started after a nine-day course of IV antibiotics for a cat bite that got infected. *I* was the one who finally figured out what it was, after being misdiagnosed with, among other things, “atypical Crone’s disease.” After I figured it out (I had been having vaginal yeast infections constantly too), my gyn sent me to a “yeast specialist” who told me I had vulvadynia, which didn’t even fit my symptoms. Before figuring it out, I had to show my asshole to about five doctors, which was really fun, and they all said they didn’t see anything wrong. (None of them were smart enough to look for something they *couldn’t* see.) A nurse told me there was no such thing and that she wouldn’t know how to culture for it anyway.

    Turned out the reason it persisted for so long is I had thyroid and adrenal problems; I had a lot of other symptoms as well, because the hormone imbalance was screwing up my whole metabolism. So check for that if you have persistent issues. (My two other most major symptoms were severe fatigue — which I initially chalked up to the yeast — and uncharacteristic, uncontrollable rage popping up over the smallest things. Once I got on an adrenal medication, my normally sunny personality returned.)

    Anyway, my point: I finally did find a “cure.” One big thing, of course, is to watch sugar, alcohol, and caffeine intake (all things that can also screw up your adrenal glands, especially if they’re already stressed). Another is the suppository-style miconazole you can get at the drug store. But the biggest thing for me was, I bought a Fleet enema and first used it to clear out any stuff up there that might be harboring yeast. Then I used the container to make my own version: Mix a little salt and the powder from one capsule of Vitamin Shoppe’s Ultimate 10 probiotic in it with water. (Put the powders in first, then add a little water and shake it up, then add the rest of the water; otherwise the powders don’t dissolve.) I do this before bed on nights when I can feel it thinking about coming back (for example in the days before my period, or if I end up having too much sugar for a few days in a row), and by morning there’s no problem. The probiotics really seem the best way to fight the stuff, and this costs almost nothing. (The Ultimate 10 is like $44 for 300, I think, but you can take them orally, which will also help, and they last a long time.)

    Good luck; it’s a horrible problem!

    • Thank you so much for posting. It sounds like I have exactly what you had and your post has helped point me in the right direction!
      Thank you!

  7. searching for info on a chronic rectal irritation,
    redness, soreness, pressure inside and around the anal area, gassiness at times, accompanying this. All tests have been negative, but symptoms persist.
    Seen a number of docs: gynecologists, colo-rectal
    specialists..none seem to get it right. Doesn’t seem to be symptoms of anything I’ve read about, most recently, as suggested by my gyn: yeast. Any helpful insights or info would be
    most appreciated.

  8. OMGOSH!!! JUST WENT TO THE DOC DUE TO THE FACT THAT I HAD EXTENSIVE ITCHING,SORENESS,WETNESS AND DISCOLORATION IN/ON MY RECTAL VERY SCARE LOST JOB NO INSURANCE APPLY FOR MEDICADE APPROVED RAN TO THE DOC …NO CLUE U CAN GET AN YEAST INFECTION IN YOUR BUTT…FEELING BETTER…

  9. Health Advisor

    yestrol is good option for treatment of rectal yeast infection; we have heard positive reviews from people who used it, but like with any medication, some people will not benefit but its still one of the best yeast treatment medications and its homepathic, so minimal side effects on your body.

  10. I have been having yeast infections and bv for over 5 months. Nothing preprepared or packaged or prescriptions have worked. I went to my local health food store and found out my body has not been breaking down yeast. I have been taking vinegar orally and vaginally. After treating the vagninal area yeast was coming out of my butt! Thanks to Betty H, I know what to do next. A bit of advice to everyone thought don’t eat yeast. It blocks vitamin absorption and can lead to hypothyroidism and a number of other problems. I suffered from hypo, fatigue, and was having anxiety problems. Since I have been treating myself for yeast I have more energy and I have lost 21 pounds. Now if I can just get rid of the rest of the yeast I will be good to go. Thanks Betty H and this website.

    • Julie, Its difficult to live with yeast for even a few days, and you have had them for 5 months. I really wish you good health back. You need to stop your current medications and review if something in your lifestyle is causing this continued yeast infection.

  11. do vaginal antifugal and probiotic suppositories work for anal yeast infections?

    • Health Advisor

      Dear Hope, as per my understanding, vaginal and anal bacteria are different, with the anal bacteria much more rogue/stronger, and that is why for women, cystitis is always lurking around the corner.

      If you want to use a natural medication, you can try Yeastrol (shown in the image above) which is based on the science of homeopathy, which is based the premise that certain natural substances can stimulate the body’s own healing systems – allowing the body to heal itself. Both men and women have found it useful.

      P.S. High-touch city lifestyles are contributing to many infections these days. Please be extra careful while using any public toilets. In case of women, the chances of infection is high from toilet seat contact.

  12. Hi, i have had this itching for about 10 years. If it were very serious surely i would have dropped by now?? I just cannot bring myself to get to a doctor to take a look. I once told a doc about it and she gave me a short dose of meds for yeast. The strange thing is i have been pregnant twice and through both pregnancies the itching was gone. I realise i should get over it and go to the doctor, i live in a small town and everyone knows everyone, i cant imagine walking in the shop and bumping into this doctor.

    • Health Advisor

      Dear Sarah, thanks for sharing your case. Life is too short to live with such a nagging discomfort. I understand what you are saying about small town. Can you please visit a nearby large city and meet a doctor there? Its one of the few times a large city life helps. You took the courage to write on this site. You see we all have normal bacteria in the intestines and rectum, maybe you have sensitive skin or maybe its a symptom of something else. Now please meet a doctor because your kids and I will be happy to see you happily living for many decades more!

  13. I have had a yeast infection for almost a month. I’ve done two doses of diflucane and nothing has changed. My rectal area has been itching burning, even feels numb and is even hurting inside. They just told me today that I’ve also got group b strep. So they have put me on amoxicillin and three more doses of diflucane . Ive been feeling so sick to my stomach for weeks now I think bc of whatever I have as well as extensive lower back pain, and numb and tingling feet. CAN ANYONE please tell me wth is happening to me?????:(

    • Health Advisor

      Dear Leslie, I feel your pain and discomfort. It sounds like a severe case of rectal yeast infection. Unfortunately (really), I am unable to advice you on the specifics because the doctor who is examining your case and symptoms is best placed to tell what rectal yeast medication to take. But you must seek a second opinion from another doctor. I have found multiple times that all doctors are not equal and some are much better and they have the ability to find can cause and heal. You have to search for another doctor who can bring your body back to normal.

      Amoxicillin is a strong antibiotic that is being used as standard treatment for wide range of bacteria, including streptococcus. A common side effect of Amoxicillin is nausea, diarrhea, vomiting. I feel you have been experiencing nausea.

      However, if you get any rashes, you must stop using Amoxicillin and please seek medical attention right away if any of these severe side effects occur when using Amoxicillin: Allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); bloody stools; confusion; dark urine; fever, chills, or persistent sore throat; red, swollen, blistered, or peeling skin; seizures; severe diarrhea; stomach pain or cramps; unusual bruising or bleeding; vaginal discharge or irritation; yellowing of the skin or eyes.

      You take this medication, and promise to take a second doctor’s opinion if this medication does not show positive results by this weekend. I pray to God to make you well soon. If possible, please post your comment again to share an update.

    • Leslie, I don’t know if you have found an answer by now…but I have the same symptoms. I have a type of yeast that is very uncommon, it’s called C. Glabrata (vaginal, and I believe also rectal at this point). Glabrata does not respond to azole type fungal drugs (Diflucan, fluconazole, etc.). I have tried almost everything out there to treat this monster (including 5 weeks of IV drugs – micafungin), but no luck thus far. I have been to so many doctors, hospitals, it’s ridiculous. Please post your “cure” if you found one.

  14. Please help! My issues started in November. It began with a vaginal yeast infection and then the rectal symptoms began. After about a week with the help of Monistat the vaginal infection went away but the rectal symptoms have not. It has been almost 5 months of chronic severe rectal itching and now there is pain. I have been to my family doc twice and she says she sees nothing of course. But she is not looking for something you can’t see. I have tried literally everything on my own:an oral probiotic…fiber supplements…suppositories…witch hazel wipes…stopped drinking alcohol and soda…warm baths…vinegar…Azo yeast tablets…topical monistat back there…oral benadryl…hydrocortisone cream…vaseline. Like I said…..everything. Please help I am miserable and desperate!

    • Have you tried psoriasis cream? I have yet to find a cure myself after visiting a few doctors and getting treatment for internal yeast overgrowth but didn’t budge any symptoms… Then treatment of steroid cream for “anal itching” that apparently the dermatologist says will never go away to trying my own anti fungal treatments using yea tree oil, I tried running raw garlic on my skin as well. Salicylic acid seems to lessen the itching but temporarily. I’ve tried probiotics also for months with no improvement. I am going to try some other remedies that others have tried on here and found some success.

  15. I have been fighting a kidney infection/appendicitis for going on 3 weeks now. I’m on the 2nd round of different antibiotics and in addition to my HSV1 anal outbreak, I fear I may also be getting an anal yeast infection. It is hard to tell as I have my outbreak happening at the same time, but I have a ton of itching that I have never had in association with an outbreak before. I don’t think I have any other symptoms other than the severe itching. It could just be my outbreak going away but I’m not sure. Any advice? Should I try this yeastrol product just in case or can I do harm that way? Any advice is greatly appreciated as this is extremely hard to discuss, over a computer or not.

    • Health Advisor

      Dear Ivanka, you are facing multiple health problems at the same time, and you have my best wishes. Yeastrol is based on homeopathy concepts, so it has not side effects and it should not interfere with your antibiotics. That is the main reason I am able to suggest this to people having rectal yeast infection. Hoping you get well soon!

  16. I went to my doctor like 2 years ago and finally told her that I was having serious pain (itching, burning, dryness.) In fact, the itching is so bad that I’ve itched until my rectum bleeds. It’s just absolutely horrible, and it makes me feel pretty disgusting. She diagnosed me as having a rectal yeast infection and gave me an antibacterial cream to apply to my rectum. She said that it would go away. It hasn’t gone away and I just keep hoping that it will. It’s pretty tough and uncomfortable when I’m at work and in a meeting, and I can’t stop thinking about my sore rectum. I just want something that will get rid of this pain once and for all. I don’t know about any of you, but I know for me it’s really embarrassing and makes me feel less comfortable with sexual relations with my boyfriend.

    • Health Advisor

      Dear Kate, thanks for sharing your problem, and I would really truly like you to get rid this nagging problem that we can’t discuss in the open. Since it has been on for 2 years, I am assuming you have tried changing your clothes and diet already. The point you said about distraction during office meetings is something almost all people have said in one way or other. I don’t know which anti fungal cream you have used (share the product name if you can in another comment) and I will see if I have any past data points on it. Why don’t you try Yeastrol (mentioned in the image above)…its a natural product based on homeopathy, and has worked for many people. Being based on homeopathy concepts, it has not side effects. Hence worth a try.

  17. Ok i have had intense itching in my rectal area. It itches inside, and outside. Its worse when i am sitting. I have paranoia problems and i am fearful that it could be pinworms, but my boyfriend checked (as embarrassing as that was!) and saw nothing. I am using Monistat 7 but so far no good. I tried preperation H and that stopped the itching for a little while but it didnt cure it. Please help me curb my paranoia. What should i do? My stress level is very high right now and i cant deal with this on top of everything else. I do not have insurance so i cant go see a doctor and my monthly budget cant include doctor bills right now. Please help me figure this out.

  18. Oh my, I have had a terrible episode of yeast infection – front and back! I read a lot about Home Remedies and tried yoghurt at first but it didn’t really work for me. Then I tried the garlic clove method (ok, did I hear “euuu…gross”?), over 5 days, 1 clove overnight and another fresh one in the morning. I kid you not, Eureka! I wasnt me during my yeast infection episode of which lasted so long like a soap opera! I couldn’t sleep and the itch at night just super horrible and when the weather is hot, dang! I feel like I wanna pay somebody to help me scratch the itch! Jokes aside, I seriously think it’s worth to try garlic clove method. You may google about how to insert it or simply email me at carejules@gmail.com. I had a soap opera long yeast partying in there and now the party is over in just 3 days but I still use it up to 5 days. Garlic is a natural anti-fungal. Actually I read about garlic clove method to clear yeast infection long time ago but was rather skeptical and it sounded just so weird to believe. BUT, I thought what have I got to lose? Just a few cloves of garlic anyways. So, happy trying!

  19. Can a man have this?

  20. I just experienced a horrible yeast infection in my buttocks,Im assuming I cut myself wiping too hard w/a babywipe and thats how it started.
    I had No idea,what the problem was or could be since I had just gotten all my test done,all std’s,blood work,physical & etc .
    anyhoo,
    I first noticed a small burning sensation while washing like a small cut (from wiping to hard) w/soap being poured on it or even being wiped by tissue,It hurt. As time went on,3days or so I noticed dryness & irritation,itching & small bumps no where near my anus but on the outter area of the inner buttocks similar to a baby diaper rash, NO vaginal itching or issues.Anytime I wiped after that I felt relief when I would wipe myself but then irritation like a yeast infection afterwards.
    I put A&D on it,Vitamin E,anything I felt would coat my skin.I even used some BUTT PASTE severe which helped sooth the pain but it wasnt going away oh,I used monistat externally but I didnt insert it..still nothing
    UNTIL,I started reading about baby diaper rashes b/c thats what it looked like to me & I found out that it was a fungal infection so I decided to insert the monistat and continue the butt paste.
    I used half a tube at night and half in the morn for 2days so far and the bumps are leaving my skin is clearing and the irritation is almost gone.Im on day 3 jus did an insert and Iam so thankful.
    I didnt think it was sexually transmitted at all.
    I knew it was a rash just not how I got it.But after learning how you can contract one.Im pretty positive it was from what I stated in the opening of my comment.Anyway,hopes this help someone.B blessed & get healed 🙂

  21. I had a yeast infection for about 6 months and didn’t know. I’m pretty sure it spread to my rectum but I’m not sure. Can you get a hemorrhoid or something like it because of a rectal yeast infection? It seems to be completely gone after taking a one time pill that my doctor prescribed me. Why must bodies be so difficult… : /

  22. I had my gallbladder removed and was in the hospital for 4 day i was giving iv antibiotics the whole time i was in there 2 day after coming home i got a bad yeast infection from the antibiotics and a rectal yeast infection after using the monistat for my vaginal infection it cleared up in a week but i still have the rectal infection going on i didn’t even know you could get a rectal yeast infection …so im going to try the monistat cream in my rectum to see if this helps………….any other ideals on how to clear this up …..

  23. I have reoccuring rectal yeast infection that on the third time around went into my vagina. I am a menopausal woman, drink lots of coffee, alcohol, and overeat. I think the coffee & alcohol are key. There is a PH imbalance. Betsy H hit the nail on the head for me, I think. I am going to clean myself out with magnesium citrate, quit the coffee and alcohol for a while, try to eat like a normal person (maybe cut the meat out, just do veggies & maybe fish once in a while with normal portions) and see what happens. I also can feel it coming on … and I use monistat and that seems to control it and get rid of it. I cannot believe this problem!

  24. I have have any itching, burning, or any of the symptoms mentioned. I just got over a vaginal yeast infection and i noticed a fishy smell when i wipe the anal area. I have never had anal sex

  25. I meant i dont have*

  26. Went to the doctor 3 weeks ago for pain in my rectum. Extreme itching and burning especially at night. Thought i might have pinworms but gave stool sample and it was negative. Even had a colonoscopy today and it was negative parasites, poloups, anal fissure. etc. I am miserable and night mainly and some during the day. I just had a vaginal yeast infection. Could I have a rectal on and not know it. The doctor gave me diflucan for the vaginal one.
    I have had to be on a ton of antibiotics this year for several different problems

  27. I have been dealing with a anal yeast infection for months. I have discharge and itching and discomfort. I try to clear it up and it keeps coming back. Sometimes my anal bleeds after trying to clean it out. I am embaressed to see my doctor. I also get some discharge in my vagina while my anal has the yeast to. But I am noticeing that it is mostly my anal. Can you please help tired of itching and discharge.

  28. I’ve been battling yeast infections and bv since I was 17. Didnt have insurance so i wasnt seen till 2 years later…seemed like it worked for a little while but…either way I have what appears to be a skin yeast infection on my stomach that pops up every now and then. Been looking everywhere for answers and saw theres a condition where theres an overgrowth of yeast, think its candida dysbosis. Want to get tested for that. also have alit of other medical issues, docs think im crazy but i think its because i was a preemie….but recently after becoming sexually active I’ve been having smelly discharge from back there, now im thinking it may be a rectal yeast infection

  29. I had a yeast infection for about a month, I finally tried that monistat3 and it worked wonderfully, Thank God! It was the worst, but during that month I have manage to transfer the yeast to my anus, this is worst than vaginal yeast, I am desperate, what can I use to clear it up. Why didn,t the monistat clear up everything? My bum is extremely irritated and soar, please help

    • Health Advisor

      Hi Julia, thanks for sharing your experience. Rectal yeast infection is very stubborn and different medications have helped different people. Please watch out for any early symptoms of recurrence. Wishing good health to everybody visiting this site.

  30. Thanks for all the comments I have ha a recta infection since November and the diflucan and creams have not worked I wondered if vaginal suppositories were safe for rectal use I plan on trying that.Have cut out the wine and am not eating as many carbs. Giving up morning coffee is a scary thought and will be the last resort. I hope you all find relief becaue I truly understand how you all feel.

  31. I don’t understand why no one mentions the obvious cure: probiotics. Rest abolish healthy flora/bacteria in the bowels, cut the sugar, and your done.

  32. Whoops spell check: just reastablish healthy flora/bacteria in the bowels and your done. If it is indeed a yeast issue

  33. About a year ago I had a very itchy spot on my bottom and little did I know that would be a start of something horrible. Over the last year that little spot has come back over and over in the same place and gotten bigger, much bigger. It seems it starts out as little bumps then turns into a very dry itchy patch. Some times it last a couple days and other times two weeks. I’m afraid to try anything because I’m newly pregnant and don’t want anything effecting the baby. What can I do?

  34. If I’m on prescribed medication for a vaginal yeast infection, will it cure the rectal one too?

  35. IF YOUR CANDIDA HAS GONE SYSTEMIC,YOU CAN TRY LUFENURON.IT IS A STRONG ANTIFUNGAL THAT DOES NOT AFFECT YOUR LIVER OR KIDNEYS.DO YOUR RESEARCH.DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON PEOPLE SELLING STUFF.GOOD LUCK,YOU,RE GOING TO NEED IT.MOST DOCTORS ARE TOTALEY WORTHLESS ON ANYTHING FUNGAL JO

  36. Sarah (and the person who said they were on the floor in pain after going to the bathroom)

    You should research lichen sclerosis. It’s an autoimmune skin disorder that commonly affects the genital/rectal area. I had more than one doctor tell me I had a yeast infection. Main symptoms were crazy itching, a crawling feeling, dryness, and cracking of skin, painful sex. Sometimes blood with bms.

    The reason I mention this, Sarah, is because more women report it goes away with pregnancy.

  37. I haven’t had a yeast infection in years, but I began noticing vaginal discomfort, fatigue, incredible cravings for sweets, irritability, and reduced urine flow. I considered going to my Western medical doctor, but their usual treatment is something like Diflucan, which can have undesirable side effects and does not get to the source of the problem. So I opted to go to a Homeopathic doctor I have seen here in the North Hollywood area. After testing, he prescribed a homeopathic compound (which is probably Yestrol, since dosing is the same), and an herbal tincture for candidiasis. Within one week symptoms are vastly improved vaginally, but now I am aware of some itching in the rectal area. But some of the most dramatic improvement I have seen has been in restoration of a normal urine flow and ability to wake up quickly in the morning–much less grogginess and overall feeling of malaise.

    I yearn for the day when Western medicine embraces some of the Eastern wisdom–and vice versa. There is value in both fields.

    Part of my treatment plan includeds eliminating sugar from my diet, including white and yellow vegetables, fruits, and grains. This is not a necessarily a permanent prescription; as my body readjusts to less sugar and candida disappears from my body, I can reintroduce logical amounts of these.

    So for a limited time, my diet is essentially to be dark green and leafy vegetables, fish, and meat. And lots of water–the medications in between meals. I have to admit to not having been 100% in following this diet, so I will have to own the increased time it will take to get healthy again. But my consumption of M&M chocolate covered peanuts has dropped to zero.

    I think it might violate site guidelines to give the name of the doctor I see, so I won’t; but I did find a website that offers very good dietary advice–very similar to that on the handouts I received by my homeopathic doctor. And the author of this website doesn’t seem to be selling anything.

  38. Here is the website, which I neglected to insert in the post above.

  39. Pingback: Symptoms Of Yeast Infection Herpes solution | Herpes solution

  40. Don’t know if anyone else has shared this information, but for the 3 vaginal yeast infections I’ve had I used plain (unflavored) organic yogurt as a topical and inserted some into vagina using a tampon. Has always worked and feels very good, cooling. Have had anal itching and hemorrhoids for about 2 weeks now and tried all kinds of homeopathic creams and herbs. Some have helped momentarily but it occurred to me today that maybe it’s yeast too. I put yogurt up in anus with tampon applicator and two hours later feel best relief I’ve had in 2 weeks. I know sounds gross, but it works. Yogurt is full of probiotics and cooling. Also taking oral probiotic.

  41. Hello health advisor.
    I an having problems around my rectal areas such as redness, whitish faded colour, pain and sometimes swelling as well. It has started to pain on my tail bone areas and having difficult to sit. But the area is not dry. It is always wet. Help me for the medications. I am using Neomycine ointment and some antifungals. But there is no positive effects.
    Rigards
    Hero

    • Dear Hero, you are right, many rectal infections originate from continued moisture in the rectal area till the tail bone. People are most likely to contract such infections during long hikes or treks and usage of public toilets in the high traffic restaurants or toilets in the woods. Neomycine ointment is a good treatment in many cases. Difficult to sit and some bleeding are common in such infections. It is most important to take regular shower with soap, and make all effort to keep the rectal area dry or with a medical cream. Please allow the skin to breathe without clothes for a few hours each night. It should help. All the best.

  42. Hello
    I was treated for HEP C and was cured, but I had to take drugs for 9 months and this included Interfron. I now have a serious yeast infection an UTI which has now also affected my rectum. I was treated with oral meds to fight both the UTI and yeast infection but my liver could not process the meds, and my OBYGYN and Gastro decided to have me take a drug called Meropenem by IV twice a day for 7 days. (out patient)
    I completed all 14 yesterday and now must wait 7 days before I see the OGYN again, and she runs new tests and another pap. However I noticed tonight that I still have yeast in both my vagina and rectum when I wipe each area after urinating.
    A nurse told me she thinks is normal and a sign that my body is purging the final bits of yeast in my body, but Im not so sure.
    Anyway…any advise is appreciated.
    Thanks
    Deborah

  43. I started with an unusual bad tummy 2 days ago, the gas was unbelievable, soon after that I got the runs, it was almost like a yellowish colour, not a vaginal discharge, but a poo, this happened twice, now I also have vaginal thrush, I have a huge itching rash under my breasts and under both arm pits. I’m not sure if it was a change of soap. I did get an over the counter single application thrush treatment, but I feel really poorly, oh I am on glucafage for diabetes. I haven’t felt this poorly in a lo.g time, I’m not securely active, and I’m in quite a bit of discomfort.

  44. It also feels like I have sore in my mouth
