Joseph has been complaining on and off for a day or 2 about having an itchy bum. I can't see anything and had a look when he he went to the toilet and couldn't see anything there. It is not bothering him or affecting his eating or sleeping or anything and its not sore when he goes to the loo. He is very good a washing his hands properly after everything! (he puts things in the bin and washes his hands, he wipes his nose and he washes his hands!!) I don't know what it is or what to do

could be just chaffed skin from heat maybe??

I hope his bum is not still itching him today, poor guy... itchy bum's no fun! Maybe put some anti-itch cream down there?

Charlotte is sufferring with itchy privates at the moment, I think hers is due to the heat, could he just be a bit sweaty and its causing a bit of soreness?

I've had to just put a bit of sudacreme on her this evening before bed and put her in clean knickers before bed.

If you can't see anything wriggling in his poo I would assume he won't have worms. Hope its nothing hun x

Does it itch more at night?? Could be worms - might be worth a trip to the chemists - Piriton is just a drop of medicine now - when I was a child it was horrible Raspberry milkshake - put me off raspberry milkshake for life Gag

It doesn't itch more at night- doesn't bother him then at all.

Mel you haven't offended (I did wonder if it might be that but I cant see anything in his poo and it doesn't bother him at night.) I put some cream on at bed time last night and he seems fine this morning.

Doesn't sound like it then - maybe the heat

Prob just the heat, guess all he can do really is wear loose clothing, if it carries on take him to the docs
