anal rash after anal sex

    
Asked by Unregistered (Female; 18 ) on Tue 11, Nov 2008 06:19pm

I had anal sex for the first time about a week and a half ago. The next day I had an uncomfortable and irritable soreness. As the days passed it turned to more of an itch than sore. And now the itch is so bad I wake up from it at night and at times I can't think about anything else. it doesn't seem to be getting any better. It's now a red rash looking thing. I have no idea if this is common and just from having anal for the first time or if there is a more serious issue?

Hello, As you had the rash,soreness and itching which began immediately after anal sex,it could be because of friction rub due to non lubrication and relaxation or irritant contact dermatitis. Anal tissue is delicate and easy to damage and so if there is any intercourse without adequate lubrication and relaxation,it can cause discomfort and itchy rashes. Pls abstain from anal sex for some days and use soft tissue to clean your rear or wash it with water.Pls remember to dry the area after washing by pat drying.Try taking some over the counter antihistaminic like benadryl or Claritin for the itching.Apply some calamine lotion or mild corticosteroid cream on the rashes.If the symptoms persist then it is important to rule out pinworms or sexually transmitted infections.Pls consult a gynecologist in that case. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted if you have any additional queries.
