Itchy Anus After Anal Sex

After trying anal sex, my anus has been itching like crazy. At first, it was a bearable itch that occurred during mornings and nights, but has progressively worsened. I’ve been applying Vaseline® to my anus to help alleviate some of the itch, and recently I started feeling a couple of bumps or small lumps around my anus. I’m not sure if these are external haemorrhoids. Could you please kindly recommend a treatment? Thanks in advance. – R

Dear R

No, I won’t recommend a home treatment for an itchy anus after anal sex.

It wouldn’t be right, or necessarily safe for you to self-medicated without correct diagnosis first.

The only thing I will recommend is that you get this examined, pronto, by either your doctor or by someone at your local Sexual Health Clinic.

You may just have hemorrhoids (haemorrhoids), but you may have genital warts, which commonly itch and increase in number at varying speed.

Masking your symptoms with Vaseline® is also risky.

If you are continuing to have anal sex, and if you are being sensible enough to use a condom, that condom is more likely to break than if you used a water based lubricant. 

(HIV is 18 times more easily transmitted via unprotected anal sex than vaginal)

There are some other viral skin conditions that produce small bumps, too, so waste no more time and get a proper diagnosis.

Hopefully, this is easily treated and the annoying itch will disappear quite soon.

But – if it is something more serious, it is much better to know as soon as possible, so it can be treated properly and your health protected, going forwards.

Sorry if this is not what you wanted to hear/read, but your long-term health is more important than a short-term fix!

You only have one life – protect it.
