Best Homeopathic Remedies for Anal Itching

The anus is the opening at the lower end of the gastrointestinal tract through which feces get eliminated from the body. Anal itching refers to the itching of the skin surrounding the anus. Anal itching is medically called Pruritus Ani and is a highly common condition. Usually, anal itching gets worse at night and after the passing of stool. In some cases, there may also be burning and redness around the anal area. Scratching of the anal area may lead to cracks and raise the chances of local infection. Anal itching can be treated successfully with homeopathic medicines. Homeopathic treatment for anal itching helps cure anal itching using medicines that are prepared from naturally occurring substances. Hence, these medicines are safe to use for people of all ages.

Causes for Anal Itching

Anal itching is a symptom not a disease, and can arise due to various reasons. Common causes of anal itching include pinworms, piles, anal fissures, anal fistula, and genital warts. Yeast infection is another reason for anal itching. Diabetes mellitus and HIV predispose a person to yeast infection. Continuous moisture around the anus from sweat or loose stool is another reason for anal itching. Other causes of anal itching include eating very spicy food, peppers, caffeine and chocolates; skin tags; taking strong antibiotics; skin problems like eczema and psoriasis; and improper hygiene of the anal area. In some cases, there is no particular cause for anal itching. This condition is called Idiopathic Pruritus Ani.

Homeopathic Treatment for Anal Itching

There is a long list of medicines in the homeopathic treatment for anal itching. Some of the most commonly used homeopathic medicines for anal itching include Teucrium Marum Verum, Nux Vomica, Ratanhia Peruviana, Sulphur, and Silicea. The reasons behind anal itching as well as the associated symptoms like burning, soreness, and pain in the anus should be taken into consideration when identifying the most suitable medicine.

1. Teucrium Marum Verum – Homeopathic Medicine for Anal Itching from Pinworms

Teucrium Marum Verum is a top grade homeopathic medicine for anal itching caused by pinworms. In such cases, there is an increase of anal itching in the evenings. Along with itching, the patient experiences restlessness as well. Due to itching, the patient’s sleep may be disturbed. In some patients, itching may increase after the passing of stool. Teucrium also works well in cases of itching from ascarides.

2. Nux Vomica – Homeopathic Medicine for Anal Itching from Piles

Nux Vomica is a highly effective homeopathic medicine for piles with anal itching . Along with this, there is an ineffectual urge to pass stool. The patient feels the need to pass stool very frequently and ends up passing a small quantity of stool at a time. In addition to frequent stool, there is a burning sensation in the anus. Nux Vomica is also helpful in cases where the intake of coffee or highly spicy food worsens anal itching.

3. Ratanhia Peruviana – Homoeopathic Medicine for Anal Itching in Anal Fissures

Ratanhia Peruviana is an effective homeopathic treatment for anal itching caused by anal fissures. In such cases, anal itching is accompanied by cracks in the anus. Along with itching, there is a burning sensation in the anal area. The burning gets better after washing with cold water. In addition to this, sharp splinter like pains in the anus may be present.

4. Sulphur – Homeopathic Medicine for Anal Itching Accompanied by a Red and Sore Anus

Sulphur is a beneficial homeopathic medicine for anal itching accompanied by a red and sore anus. A burning sensation in the anus may also be present. Diarrhea and constipation may occur alternatively, along with the above symptoms. Involuntary passage of stool, while sneezing or passing flatus, is another indication for using Sulphur. An itchy anus, because of skin complaints like eczema and psoriasis, is another symptom that requires the use of Sulphur.

5. Silicea – Homeopathic Medicine for Anal Itching During and After Passing Stool

Silicea is an excellent homeopathic treatment for anal itching that occurs during and after passing stool. There is moisture around the anus that worsens the itching. In such cases, constipation is also a symptom. Though the stool is soft, it is passed with a lot of strain. In most cases, the stool recedes in the rectum after partial expulsion. Silicea is also an effective medicine when anal itching arises in cases of anal fistula.

  10. Hello Doctor,

    My name is Gopi. I am suffering from anal itching for the past 8 months. I do not have constipation and invariably pass loose stools without difficulty. I have gastritis and I have a doubt whether anal itching is because of that. I have taken allopathy and Ayurvedic medicines for worms but of no use. I generally love spicy foods.

    When I travel, I used to get little bleeding on my anus and it goes by applying coconut oil. Request you to suggest a medicine for me.
