I'm interested in your experience with hemorrhoids, as my main symptom at this point is anal itching. I'm pretty sure that I have pinworms, as I have had this condition for a few years now, and all the parasite symptoms seem to line up.. When I first did a parasite cleanse a few months ago, the itching got really intense and I was getting strange hives and stuff, so I am thinking I have pinworms. And I actually saw *one* in the toilet on thanksgiving day, but so far this is the only one I have id'd for sure.
Right now (thankfully!), the itching at night (which was like clockwork) has much subsided, but now I get itchy at strange times, like after eating or just during the day or in the evening, so I'm trying to think about other reasons as well. I've also read that candida can make you itch.. And I've thought about hemorrhoids, but I don't know why I would have them. I'm rarely constipated. Is it possible that I could have given myself hemorrhoids from itching that area in the past? I'm not sure, I just know that the itching always returns and it's driving me nuts! ; )If you have any advice or info, please let me know.
