What causes your anus to itch?

Anal or rectal itching (Pruritus ani) is a common ailment many people suffer from. The main symptom is the irritation of the skin at the exit of the rectum, known as the anus, causing the desire to scratch.

A number of things can cause this ranging from poor hygiene, to yeast infection, to hemorrhoids. A certain type of human parasitic worm infestation can also cause an intense itch (Threadworms and Pinworms).

Why do my farts smell like rotten eggs?

Certain vegetables like onions, garlic and cabbage contain lots of Sulfur, also eggs contain a lot, too. Your body needs Sulfur in your diet; it is essential for the metabolism of many biomolecules. If you eat more than your body needs in a short time, not all will be assimilated. Thus, Sulfur-containing molecules will be released from the body.

Sulfur-containing molecules tend to stink. If you eat a lot of garlic, which contains the chemical diallyl disulfide, your body won't be able to assimilate all the sulfur and, in this case, some of the chemical will be exuded from your skin (in sweat). (Nice, 'cuz it keeps mosquitos away.)

What you are experiencing is the metabolic waste of certain bacteria in your gut. They "eat" the Sulfur-containing molecules that you ingested in your food and release Hydrogen Sulfide (gas) as a waste product. (Can be nice, 'cuz it keeps people away.)

If it goes away after a day or two, it's nothing to worry about. If it's a big problem for you, try to remember what you ate (think stinky) and try to avoid it.

Insertion of a finger into the male rectum to palpate the rectum and prostate?

Inserting a finger into the rectum to palpate rectum and prostate is a procedure to check the prostate gland for enlargement or prostate cancer.

Inserting the finger into the rectum to palpate to prostate is also known as prostate milking or prostate massage. This is done to remove the build up of prostatic fluid in the prostate gland, and also for pleasure as a prostate ejaculation can be more intense than a penile ejaculation.

What happens when food enters the rectum?

It is stored there for a while of time until it is released through the anus. Nothing much happens in it because it has already been broken down a lot from the other organs, and enzymes have been added.

How do you take rectal temp?

Depends on the age of the child.

I have boys ages 9-12. If a rectal temp is needed, I place a towel on a bed. Have them lower their pants or take them off. Have them lay face down on the towel.

In preparing the rectal thermometer, shake it down and smear some vaseline on the first 2 inches of the thermometer. When ready, gently separate their buttocks and gently insert the thermometer slowly. Leave in for a few minutes, then take out. Wipe the thermometer with tissue before reading.

Is it bad if you have green poop?

Not necessarily. Sometimes you have a random green poop for no apparent reason and there's absolutely nothing wrong. If it's persistent, though, you should contact your doctor.

What could cause pain at the top of the butt crack?

It may be caused by a pilonidal cyst, an infection/cyst near the tailbone that fills with purulent material (pus).

Or, if no signs of redness, drainage, or swelling, sometimes people have broken their tailbones from a fall without realizing it until there is pain in that area.

Also a condition called Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction causes pain in that area.

Can a digital rectal exam identify prostate cancer?

Yes, this is the first test that will tell you whether the prostate is enlarged.if prostatitis. Prostatitis is a benign ailment-it is not cancer, and it does not lead to cancer. It is not always curable, but it is almost always treatable. Antibiotics and diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill are the mainstay of therapy for prostatitis.

There is question as to whether continued inflammation of the prostate may lead to the eventual development of prostate cancer, and current studies are underway to determine if reducing inflammation can prevent prostate cancer. Hope this can help you.
