There is not much more seems since I have started on probiotics I have a lot of rectal itching. Could this be a side effect?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

It's unlikely to be caused by the probiotics. Probiotics (live microorganisms) are generally well tolerated. The most common side effects are gas, flatulence or bloating sensation. That said, I would definitely ask your doctor about this.
