Itch-anus

 

ITCHING OF ANUS.–When this is due to the presence of worms in the lower bowel or to piles, these affections must be treated, and itching will disappear with them. When the itching arises independently, special treatment must be adopted.

General Treatment.–Let the patient abstain from coffee, sugar, pastry, and rich foods of all kinds. Rub the part at night with sweet oil. If this fails to allay the irritation, use instead Verbascum ointment ( a teaspoonful of Verbascum 0 or two tablespoonfuls of fresh lard).

Medicines.–Night and morning.
