butt problem

on thursday till about sunday i had the runs, but there was no blood. now my butt hole is bothering me. my doctor thinks its just a small hemorrhoid and gave me some cream which helps but the first couple days after sunday i had 2 colored poop, then a black one, then colored and now its normal again. my doctor checked my prostate, while i was there. but i think it could be an infection or parasites. my butt is itchy/ poking pain. its not that bad that it makes me uncomfortable all the time.....any thoughts on what it could be?  oh and it doesnt hurt to poop or wipe.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Worms are the commonest cause of anal itch. Scratching repeatedly can cause sores. Itchy anus can also be due to undigested food like citrus fruits, grapes, certain spices, tomatoes, certain medicines like antibiotics and laxatives and certain drinks like beer, milk, tea, or coffee. Anal fissures, hemorrhoids, threadworms can all cause anal itch. Itch can also be due to irritants like synthetic fiber, toiletries or fungal infection. Genital warts and sores of herpes should also be ruled out.
Get the stool tested. Sit in a tub of warm water twice a day. This will help reduce inflammation due to hemorrhoid. Apply the hemorrhoidal cream. Keep the area dry. Take a lactobacillus preparation or probiotic as it is commonly called. If this does not help, take a second opinion from another doctor.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
