Q.

rash near anus

My 6yr old daughter complains of a sore anus. When I looked, I noticed it was a bit red. I bought some fissan paste thinking it could be nappy rash... but after 2 days - she is still complaining about the pain but the redness is gone. What else could it be?

This could be due to a worm infection caused by threadworms. Treat your daughter with Vermox Syrup 5ml twice a day for 3 days.
