Symptoms

Anal Pain & Itching

Beverly Hills Gastroenterologist

Anal itching happens when the skin around the opening of the anus becomes irritated. Anal itching can be caused by quite a few factors.

Common causes of anal pain and itching include:

  • fungal infections
  • hemorrhoids
  • fissures
  • skin conditions
  • allergic reactions

There can sometimes be certain chemicals that are present in the stool that can also irritate the anus.


RECTAL PAIN

Rectal pain can be a symptom of various GI conditions, including anal fissures, constipation, diarrhea, anal or rectal cancer or hemorrhoids. It is important to see a doctor, though, if the rectal pain occurs with other symptoms such as rectal bleeding and abdominal pain. Everyone with rectal pain should be seen by a doctor.

To schedule an appointment with our Beverly Hills gastroenterologist at Center for GI Health, contact our office at (310) 657-4444.
