Hi doctor,

What are some of the home remedies for burning sensation of the Anus? What is the reason for this burning sensation? It happens whenever I eat outside food. Though I did not eat more spicy food, why it is happening.

Drink fresh fruit juices or cucumber juice or tender coconut water. Drink more water daily. Consume more buttermilk or curd. Avoid straining during defecation. Have a good sleep. Lie down (sleep) in the left lateral side of the body. If you feel worms moving sensation (itching) in the anus, then take allopathy drugs (Mebendazole tablet three days twice daily) after consulting your family doctor.
