Hello Guido,
Is there any rash on the exterior?
If so it could be a fungal infection of the skin which is easy to treat like a diaper rash. I used to sit in the bath so much I had started to see the beginnings of a rash then started being careful about drying the area after baths with a soft towel before I apply coconut oil.
I am also experiencing occasionally another kind of itching inside the anus and if that's what you mean coconut oil helps a little with that. Also my cream is nifedipine with lidocaine and that helps too possibly the lidocaine in it.
Take care and hang in there - all these strange and inexplicable sensations just to brighten up our day!! Nobody can understand them but a fellow sufferer.
Best

I don't know what happening to me but for about 2 weeks or so now itching and scratching on in my anal area is getting insupportable, I am thinking about using some creams or medications skin care, what do you think?

I had the same problem. Itching drove me crazy. Finally my doctor gave me some higher strengh ( 2% ?) chortisone ointment and it stopped the itching and scratching very quickly. Couldn,t believe it but it worked.
