I have been feeling worm like sensations in my anus region for the past 2 or more years. I saw an gastroenterologyst once. I done two different stool samples with two different doctors. Both test came negative. I feel that the tests don't do anyjustice. I don't know what else I need to do and I need to know what is the next procedure to examine my problem. Please respond. Thanks.

Since it appears that parasitic causes have been ruled out, have you discussed with your doctor about using over the counter products or ointments for example, hydrocortisone creme? A suggestion that may reduce the sensation of itching is, immediately after bowel movements cleanse the area with water from a squeeze bottle (without soap) or unscented baby wipes to reduce irritation. After cleansing pat the area dry. Use unscented bathroom tissue and wear cotton underwear.
