Question: Itching after bowel movements

 Poda - Mon Jan 29, 2007 11:56 pm

Hi, I have a weird issue where after using the bathroom I get this crazy itch under my armpits, usually only 1 at a time. But, it seems to be linked because it happens time and time again right after bowel movements. Is there any possible syndrome that is known to do this?

User avatar Hi Poda,
I am unaware of a syndrome which connects the symptoms in which you complain, even after I researched through literature. Mention this to your physician at your next evaluation.
