Thanks for the query.
Itching in the anal area could be due to many causes, the common reasons being worm infestation like enterobius which generally resides in the anal area, causing severe itching, allergic causes like contact dermatitis, developing due to soaps, lotions or any cosmetics or due to lack of hygiene. Other reasons could be spicy food,yeast infection,diarrhea, haemmorhoids, skin tags ,etc
You will have to maintain anal hygiene, keep the area dry and use cotton undergarments. Avoid any use of cosmetics over the area and make sure you drink lots of water daily, to prevent constipation.
There is nothing to feel shy about consulting a doctor, it is a common problem and the doctor will solve it. Everything will be kept confidential.Kindly do not hesitate to consult a doctor, you may need to get a few investigations, like swab culture for pinworm, etc.
Hope this helped
