Itchy butt Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxy Due September 9 (boy); 1 child; Zimbabwe 42927 posts

For the last 3 weeks ish, Jamil itches his butt/balls area when he's in the bath... and I've noticed him trying to scratch with his diaper on, I just assumed it was uncomfortable and didn't connect the two...



Tonight he actually layed down when I changed him, so I was able to look, there are some small little cuts, and redness, it doesn't' really look like a diaper rash, or like anything to uncomfortable, but that he cut it from scratching...



I'm planning to put something on it, but couldnt' find anythign when I was changing him, and I didn't want him to scratch more, so I just put the diaper on...



What should I put on it, and has anybody expierenced this...

If his butt is ichy he might have worms. Dont freak out, its very common in young children. Just visit the pharmacy and they will have something to clear it up. If you decide to put anything on iy make sure you wash your hands really well because you might spread the worms and you could get them. Best to trat the whole family.

Could be worms.



My sons were like that with thread worm. Has he been eating more than normal or unusually grumpy?

Could he maybe have a yeast infection Christina. I hear that they are pretty common in toddlers.
For Olivia's yeast infection the dr prescribed NYSTATIN.

That's so gross... I'm going to have to try, I seriously doubt he would let me put a piece of tape on his Butt like that.. We have two cats but there indoor only, We had them checked for worms at there last appt, and nothing... and the LO I watch has animals so Idk if there indoor or outdoor...



He's not itching it all the time though, it's mostly when he's in the bath, or when he needs to be changed.. .Bleh, getting him to take medicine would be hell too

He's never had thrush before, and it's not really a rash.. It looked a little red where he scratched it in the bath, and it had some small cuts, from his nails scratching it.. But he has never been prone to rash or even had a rash.. So If I was thrush My nipples would probably have it, and he would probably be much more irritated no?

Christina I just googled pinworms and it says that you will be able to see them (if he has them) in his poops. So I would inspect his poops.

If you don't find pin worms or eggs, anal itching may be a sign of another problem, such as dryness from cleaning the area too vigorously with soap. Red, tender skin around your toddler's anus could be the result of irritation from diaper rash, diarrhea, or a bacterial infection. (If you suspect an infection, call his doctor.
