2 + Year Genital/Anal Itch Reaction After Exam

A doctor took a quick look at my genitals, barely touched me (I think he did not have gloves on) just to make sure things looked ok (developed normal) as I wanted to make sure. That night I got an itch and I have had it for over 2 years. Any idea what it could be that could last that long? It almost seems to have microscopic oozing...really irritated..no blisters, sores or scabs... Colloidal silver a few times didn;t fix it... Any idea what it is or how it can be treated? I am wondering if I got an immune reaction? I have been in contact with latex many times and never had this reaction. I think it was something on his hand. The doctor was not very kind and I don't feel he would be very helpful.

Hello and welcome to MedHelp's forums.  Thank you for your question. This is a bit hard to determine what is going on.  Whether it is due to that initial visit or not is hard to say.  My suggestion is to see another doctor.  You can have different things going on with regards to chronic anal itching.  Here's a helpful slide show. https://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/ss/slideshow-anal-itching.  

If the doctor did not wear a glove to examine your anus, this would be quite unusual. That generally is protocol. If he neglected to wear a glove, this may be the reason for his stand offish behavior when confronted with this. But if he did not, that could possibly put you at risk for things like a fungus or bacterial infection.  Otherwise, there are several reasons you could be itching.

I don't think you'll ever be able to prove the incident happened because of the doctor visit but instead would switch focus to just solving the problem. Look through the list of possibilities.  Being ruling them out one by one with the hopes of finding the true cause.  Let us know how it goes.
