Shecky asks:

For the last two months, my ass has been itching like crazy. I eat a lot of fiber in the form of Metamucil and whole wheat bread, so my turds are generally of a good consistency. I don't have hemmorhoids, and I would like to think that I don't have a parasite, but my ass still itches. It's not the o-ring that itches, but rather the area around it. It's almost like I have jock itch of the ass -- is that possible? I exercise a good bit, so it does get sweaty down there. Please help me, Poonurse!






Dear Schecky,

First, you know that I am going to tell you to get it checked out by a competent medical professional, right? It could be just an irritation, or it could be something as disgusting as pinworms or something. So see a doctor.

You COULD briefly try washing with a mild soap such as Ivory, letting the area dry well, wearing loose cotton underpants, not using premoistened wipes, and applying 1% hydrocortisone cream SPARINGLY to the itchy area twice a day. If these suggestions don't help within ten days or so, show your itching ass to a doctor.

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

I had an itchy rear end at one time (very annoying). In my case, is was a precurser of hemmorhoids, burning, bleeding hemmorhoids.
My advice would be: See a doctor, unless you enjoy flames coming out of your ass everytime you drop a bomb.

Holy shit...no other web site is so informative while at the same time being so entertaining...I showed symptoms of pinworm so I used the alcohol remedy it feels like flames are shooting out of your ass...now I can barely put a finger near the area without tears streaming from my eyes...I now use this hydrocortisone 2% prescription stuff...once everything calms down down there I'm going to retry the alcohol but just in limited quantities...btw people piss me off who say you should go to a doctor it's embarassing I don't want to go to someone and tell them my asshole is fucked up it's humiliating, people want to keep it quiet and find a cure without involving the doctor...good luck to all my fellow ass itchers.

How about a good bath, Shecky? If you don't wash your ass, it's gonna itch. It's called 'hygiene.'

Hey, I tried Aftate and you are right IT DOES BURN. Its like trying to use your tender little brown spot for a rocket motor. I must have cried for hours. When the flame went out the itch was gone. No more scrathing. It beats the hell out of using the keyhole saw method.

I've heard that if you have a lot of hair in that region, it can irritate your buttcrack quite a bit. Maybe try getting a wax job, lol.

An itcy rump could be a precurser of the 'rhoids.

It could also be anything from worms / parasites to nothing more than a bad reaction to the laundry soap you are using.

Seems to be a lot of talk about but itching I have the cure my ass has been itching for years and years this is what you do now I must warn you this hurts like hell in comparison I would say it feel like you ass hole is on fire however you only have to do it once a week or as needed take a paper towel pour 70 percent alcohol on it and rub it on your a hole and surrounding areas do not remove it until the burning stops aprox 1 min of total hell then when you remove it it will burn again for about a half a minute but it is totally worth it.

The top of my butt crack itches all the time. Sometimes it gets a bump on it. I am very clean but I'm suspecting that my tight butt checks are not allowing any air at all between my crack causing it to remain too moist. I shower daily but when I wipe I have a bad back and can't get all the way up my crack. I really don't think it's crap, I think my butt cheeks sqeeze together too tight at the top of the crack. Sometimes I will take cotton, the kind women buy in strands for cosmetics, and tear off a piece about 4 inches long and stick it between my cheeks. This offers relief and absorbs moisture and keeps the cheeks spread apart enough to breath a little. I do think perhaps it's a fungal problem though. I don't know where to begin with creams or powders. It's weird because my dog itches at the top of her tail, on her back, and her vet is putting her on monistat-derm. I can't afford to go to the doctor, but my dog can. Maybe I should share her cream.

I have an itchy ass for the past few days. I think its fungi since I've not properly cured my case of athelets foot/jock itch, and therefore it is the most proximate cause and most likely.

Thanks for pointing out what should have been obvious to me.

Well, its been itching fer bout two weeks or so.. I was a little ass-shamed at first but after readen and readen all the storys and all, I recten im not really all that different. Getting my underware stuck up my ass by my index finger at lightning speeds is getting a little old, but all in all I feel at home with you people. Are there any convenient remedies to get ass stink off my finger without having to walk all the way out to the running water on the fridge door?

OK, listen up. I have a book that says you should use a "peri bottle" to clean your arse. Fill with warm water and squirt. A shampoo bottle will do the trick. It also says to use calendula salve for an anal fissure. Search the web for this. This is a common problem. Put in the rectum before bowel movements. For itch, it recommends a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Says to apply several times daily. I am not recommending any of this. It's up to you if you want to try them.

5 Q-tips dipped in rubbing alcohol. Spread'em and swab gently up and down anus and crack. If you dare, insert in anus. It will burn for a minute or two, but you'll feel (and be) clean and the burning pain will replace the urge to itch.

Thanks to all for sharing remedies and experiences.....I think I'm almost cured from an itchy butt hole/crack...I have been using 70% alcohol after each dump as a dab, it stings a bit, but the reward is awesome, no butt tickles or itches. Hopefully this will be a final solution to my problem.

Got you all beat man, 30 years of itching and NOTHING WORKS!!!!! It's got to be bacterial, I've heard vinegar is a good antibacterial, so that one is next. Those guys that made WD-40 took forty tries to come up with their formula, I've got that record beat to shit. If the vinegar don't work, I'm going shopping for a good angle grinder.

I had a dilemma a few nights ago with my itchy crack and I could not sleep so I was searching desperately on WebMD..then I finally googled this site and I must say, I laughed my heart out. With my itchy butt, I felt relieved there were others but also felt sad bc I don't want this problem for the next 25 years!! Anyway, my butt problem started when I used witch hazel medicated pads to help my hemmorhoid problem (the "bump" a lot of you keep referring it as) along with Prep H. Well that was taken care of but then my butt kept itching on the sides, I threw out the pads bc of other comments on this site and I decided to try shaving my butt (I'm a female, so it was weird), but that worked! Then awhile ago I had read in a magazine that if I wanted to prevent shaving bumps on my bikini line, it said to mix equal parts Benadryl (an anti-itch cream) w/ a non-perfumed, non-greasy lotion..that works awesome for not getting razor burn bumps..so I thought, I will do the same for my butt bc I didn't want razor burn..if that happens in the anal region. So it's been day 3 and my butt has been itch-free. I use the Benadryl-lotion mixture (a pea-sized dollop of both) after I go to the bathroom, after I shower, and before I go to bed. It works great and you could give it a try. Maybe the lotion will work even if you don't shave your butt..since I didn't try it without shaving my butt, I can't compare the methods..so maybe someone could try that first. HOpe this helps someone!

I've had an itchy crack for years. My fiance is making me go to the doctors to get it looked at. Having read some of the posts here, I see some similarities to my symptoms. Itching is the worst at night or after heavy boozing. But does anyone have the issue that after they scratch for a bit, a clear, watery secretion happens? It smells but not like poop. Also, after I go through an itch-scratch-ooze cycle, the area will effectively dry out and flake off like a peeling sunburn. This cycle can be separated by days or weeks before starting up again.

Here's what I did..'s picture

I believe mine was a fungus (candida) problem, which I think is a fairly common cause. Here's what I did:

Go to a health store and buy:
- Aloe Vera Juice (with NO additives, esp. sugar or starch)
- Tea Tree Oil (100% pure)
- DDS Acidophilus with FOS (in the refrigerated section, capsules)

Also needed:
- Q-Tips
- Mild soap, I use Oil of Olay Unscented, or Tea Tree soap from The Body Shop
- lots of 100% cotton underwear (change frequently)

Store the Aloe Vera Juice and the DDS in the fridge.

Every time you have a bowel movement (should be about once a day):
- mix together 1 tbsp. of Aloe Vera Juice and about 15 drops of Tea Tree oil.
- sit on the edge of the bathtub
- dip toilet paper into the solution and gently press to clean
- then take Q-Tips, dip them in the solution and gently clean inside. Insert each one only once, then grab a new one until it's clean.
- if there's any solution left dip it in toilet paper and press
- remain seated on the edge of the tub for another 5 or 10 minutes until it is completely dry.

Every time you have a shower:
- Make sure you are gentle and rinse the area really, really well. Left over soap can irritate it more.
- Dry yourself off really well
- Sit on the edge of the tub
- Cut open a DDS Acidophilus with FOS capsule and catch the powder in your hand
- Rub it over the area

You should start to feel relief in the first few days, keep at it for about two weeks.

Keep track of what your body is doing, there's always the possiblity of an allergy. Stop or modify if necessary.

Actually, the best thing to do would be to see a Naturopathic doctor, I would recommend them before seeing a Medical doctor.

Good luck!

I've suffered from sporatic bouts of itchy butthole for years. I find its caused by having to overwipe when my shits are not as solid as usual. the best remedy I've found is to put a nickel sized dot of preparation H cooling gel on my tender sphincter and then wipe that off with more toilet paper. I'm not talking about the fishy smelling greasy shit, I'm talking about the cooling gel with aloe. It helps to clean the butthole while providing the much needed lubrication to prevent further chaffing of the butthole. The gel also contains an antihistimine to relieve the itchy butthole tenderness associtaed with overwiping.

Ugh, so, recently I started getting this itch. It's usually always after having a bowel movement and it's usually on the left side of the hole. It has kind of a stinging itch..I have been taking a Q-tip dipped in Tea tree oil and it burns, but doesn't really help. I am considering going to a DR. But thought I might try to figure it out on here 1st.
Thanks!

Wow, had no idea there were so many ass scratchers out there!!

I've had this irritating itch for a bout a month, tried all sorts of pile creams but it's not that, there is some red cracked skin above the butt hole, so I'm thinking it might be fungal (had a jock itch a few months back) so I'll try an anti fungal cream.
if that doesnt work (i hope it aint threadworm, but it itches durign the day too, so cant be), ill have to go to the DOC which i dont wanna do as its sooooo embarrasing
me: hey doc my anus itches
doc: ok pull ur pants down and let me stick my fingers in your butthole!
me: fuck

so thats why i hope it gets cured soon without a doc

the internet is great. and this site is great. I seem to find myself back here randomly every so often on different topics.

And yes, I have had an itchy but for years. big bad rash all over the groin similar to one I had over my ear that finally went away when I stopped scrttching it (psoriasis?).

anyway, I have to say, there is nothing like a g good 20 minute groin scratch as I lay down in bed to really clear my mind of the day's troubles. just shear, unadulterated pleassure sensor hits. I stop when blood starts flowing or the pain/pleasure lines starts moving the wrong direction.

If I had to guess, I would say I had psorias or something that a few years of scratching has led to seconday bact or fung issues since the ealry years (the salad years??) were more heavy flaking around the but crack. now it seem more groin rash.

nope. no hand washing. I wonder if that is what caes my acne? oh well.

This site has depressed me as it has just brought home to me the notion that there really is no cure to itchy ass hell. Many good coping strategies are laid out though. I've had this pesky bumblebee living in my anal canal for 13 years now. I sometimes wonder whether it is just an OCD of some sort. Why won't the fucker just die? I have tried every creme and lotion in existence, and nothing relieves it permanantly. My latest game is to go as long as possible without touching the hive area, until i can barely breathe and become light headed, then I drive a fairly stiff bristled bottle brush up there, with a spinning action that produce an ass-gasm that brings my heart rate up to about 240 beats per minute. Naturally. I then feel quite guilty and lament my loss of sanity. I am close to torching myself with a gasoline enema.... somebody please help me.

If your ass itches severely and ur ball bag stinks,then do yourself a favour and use an anti-fungal cream.In most cases it is caused by Tinea,also known as ring worm, atheletes foot or jock itch.When it heals avoid scratching as it is just like giving up smoking, all in the mind....P.S remember to treat your fingers as well as tinea can live under and around the nails.

Okay, ya'll convinced me, i'm going in to get my itchy ass checked out. I'm pretty sure it's fungal, cuz it went from jockitch, to taint itch, and now it's red hurting bung itch.

Tell ya what tho, don't let this go too long, cuz if the tissue gets damaged too much from a fungal going midevil on your ass, you're prolly looking at a number of soft tissue injuries, and sitting on a rhoid cushion for a while.

I'm going in tonight to see what it is, i'll recap on my show sat. night on krush between 9 and 11CST.. and maybe pop a mention here.

Hi fellow itchers and scratchers. I'm hoping to find a willing volunteer to try a "cure" for your itching. I suffered for many years with a rash on my legs and feet. I don't know what caused it but it would come and go over the years . It seemed to be worse in the summer and at night in bed, also if I got stressed. So I put it down to a prickly heat rash. None of the over the counter medications worked, so I thought it may have been fungal, again I tried the creams to no or limited avail. I tried anti candida diets, which did help but were very restrictive. If people try the diets alone, I think they will have some relief. Then in the last 6 months or so, I was reading a cleaning book and the author recommended clove oil to kill fungus on ones shower curtain. It was too late for my shower curtain but I was intrigued if it would work on my rash. I had used clove oil for tooth ache and gum inflammations for years with excellent results but also knew if I accidently got some on a healthy bit of gum it would burn like hell. So with great trepidation I tried it on my leg. I wet a cotton ball with water and dropped one drop of clove oil on it and applied it to my rash. Yes, it burnt like hell, yes, the skin went red but most importantly YES!!! the itching stopped. For longer then any other treatment. The skin became drier where the rash was as the healing began. If the itch came back which it did I just followed the same procedure. I eventually applied the oil morning and night for several weeks, from memory, whether it was itchy or not. Until the skin was back to normal.The burning sensation gets better and sometimes you can't even feel it. Ive had the odd flare up but one application usually knocks it on the head now. Why I need some one to try this possible solution is because my partner has the anal itching shared by many of you and he is all but ripping himself to shreads. He's tried witch hazel with some success, creams with little help and after making himself bleed by scratching, tea tree oil. I warned him how much it was going to hurt, as he already had exposed tissue and it was a very sensitive area but he wouldn't wait till the skin was healed and of cause experienced agonizing pain. The tea tree did eventually help,for awhile, after I peeled him off the ceiling. So despite my pleads for him to try the clove oil he says he can not bare the pain again. I did get him to try a weak tea made from 6 dried cloves crushed and steeped in boiling water for several minutes. Let it go cold and store in the fridge. strain off cloves and apply the cold "tea", using a cotton ball to area. Use a clean ball each time and don't let your fingers infect the tea. This gives a bit of relief and the mildest of buzzes from the oil. So if any body is willing to try the oil, I would recommed to always dilute it on a wet cotton ball, maybe one drop, then run some water over that to dilute it more. Make sure you haven't cut your skin up by scratching before you apply and brace yourself. It's similar to a menthol burn, say from a muscle soreness cream. But possibly worse. If the pain is unbearable get cold water on it straight away and just keep diluting it. Maybe try the tea and work up to the oil as the skin becomes more desensitized to the clove. PLEASE TAKE CARE!! this oil is very volitile and can cause severe pain if you get any in your eye or delicate skin eg anal and genital areas, even though this is the what we're trying to heal. I can not be held responsible for any injury but can only honestly tell you it helped my leg rash, and the tea helped my partner. Any body willing to try the oil please do so at your own risk. In saying that I hope someone is willing and it does work. Please let me know through this forum so I can hopefully convince my partner to try and maybe we can help everyone else out there. Thank you in advance. and here's to a good nights sleep and a bum that just does what it's suppose to.

It might be an allergy. Try eliminating just ONE thing from your diet at a time for 2 weeks, and see if you don't improve.

I had the same problem. After reading forums on the internet and seeing doctors couldn't find out what was wrong 99% of the time, i took matters into my own hands. Try exercising regularly and eating healthy foods. Also try wrights coal tar soap. It kills most bacteria and leaves the cleaned area really dry and stops it smelling. Try using it in the bath or shower. Hope this helps :)

Some of these posts are pathetic. Taking the piss out of a really serious problem.

Well the alchohol one seems to work for a lot of you. maybe I'll try that one.

Sounds like most of you have pruritus ani.

I use apple cider vinegar, now that stings like hell but is worth it just to get rid of the itch.

I also scratch using wipes as it stops your finger nails from cutting you up. Use to cut up quite badly but no way near as bed as now if I use the wipes. I use them to clean up too after a crap.
If you do think you are allergic to wipes (very possible for some),soak in warm water and then find another type of container to put them in, you'll struggle putting them back in their bag. Soaking them should get rid of the dodgy chemicals that are in them.

Most of the stuff doctors give you for this problem are useless. So try alternative things like Prurotab or Neuragen. Like I said I use apple cider vinegar or even witch hazel.

Though I am now staring out on an attempt at the old self belief mind shit. I.E I'm telling myself the itch is weak and doesn't bother me. Did Ok for the lasdt 4 days though fell down a bit this morning and had to have a good scratch, but I'm going back to the itch is weak again now.

Good luck and a pity the site isn't monitered better so we can get rid of the bull written in here.

Im no doctor nor am i rendering any medical advice, just another victim that is explaining his situation in hopes that others can learn from it. Ive had lingering athletes foot/jock itch for years, sometimes it goes away for awhile, but it seems that it always come back, and never before in the anal region, and this infection dates back to the days before i was a 'mold-remediator' which ive been doing for 4 years, (cleaning real nasty bacterial and fungal problems in homes) just recently, about the last couple months or so, i get the itchiest bum, that wakes me up from a stone cold sleep just about every nite. i dont want to go to the doctors and tell them i have an itchy bum for the same reason the next guy doesnt. and obviously i think its something fungal/bacterial, altho im not ruling out the "worms" or "rhoids" theories, (but i havent began researching those yet, but ill tell ya, ive wiped with peroxide for weeks, rubbing alcohol for weeks, and even used the anti-fungal creams for weeks, nothing but 12 hr temporary relief tops. now i just started using the strong stuff yesterday. 151. it provides relief generally from the time i wake up itching and apply it until the time i wake up in the morning.i figure if it stops its temporary relief, then ill start drinking it. ::sigh:: but there has to be an internal cure or something. i kno, typical gullable thinking right?!? "everything can be cured by a pill" heh. But i have been making iced tea for what seems like a couple months now... lipton at that. after reading the earlier post im wondering, is it connected? i think i may try to cut the tea out of my diet after this pitcher and see if i cant tell a difference. ive gotten lots of new ideas to use too from here if it doesnt work. i just hope i differentiated "the real" from "the crap"

Bacardi 151 proof Rum, I believe, is what "151" is referring to.

So you guys using the alchohol how long does the itch stay away?

Also anymore info on rubbing alchohol? Not sure we can get that over here in England as no one I know has heard of it.
It's not an in joke is it? As RA sounds quite painfull on your tender regions.

Can't see how clove oil would be any more painful than alchohol.

Re: "rubbing" alcohol. Try "isopropyl" alcohol. That's the proper name.

Someone help!

It usually occurs during night and it's seriously disrupting my sleep time.

My ass cheek itches like hell and normally the itch comes in a form of bumps that looks and feel similar to mosquito-bites. Sometimes it itches so much that I force myself to take a cold butt-shower just to ease the burning itch. And sometimes, I apply Hazeline Snow Moisturizing Cream to 'cool' it down a little.

All those scratching has made my butt looking ugly! With brown spots and all...

WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?

Sigh...

Sounds like you got Pruritus Ani.
Seems different things work for different people. Try the alchohol, but I'd dilute it a little as It's going to sting like damn.

I've heard distilled white vinegar is good for itching.

I have an itchy arse and it itches when i need the loo it itches right upinside you can itch your but hole and around the crack but the itch feels just inside it is intense it comes at night mostly when your body is shutting down, eating at night makes it worse because then i will need the loo the only thing i've found relieves the itch is going to the loo trying to pass wind or have a poo or a wee at the very least a wee, luke warm water with cotton pads soothes it, creams are useless they work for a week at best then what. hydrocortizone is not a cure a long way off try relieving the itch by having a bowel movement..

Hi guys just dropping a line to see if anybody has tried my clove oil treatment yet. Please leave a message on this thread if you have, both good or bad results, as I'm confident it will help. Please read my comment from the 5.17.07 if you're unfamiliar with the usage. Good luck

if your butt itches and you know you have pinworms put rubbing achoul on it. it will burn really bad for 1 minute, but it will be worth it

I'll try the clove oil for you. Was thinking of using a vey small amount diluted in aloe vera (something like one tenth clove to vera, what you think? You need to remember that all of us pruritus ani sufferers we'll all have cuts in our anal regions, so I can see why your fellow was a no no.

Hi Anonymous Coward, thank you for attempting the clove oil treatment. Please make sure it's pure essential oil. Health food shops or chemists/drug stores, would be the best place to buy it. One drop should be more then enough. I hadn't thought of aloe vera as a dilutent but I think it should be an excellent carrier for the oil and also very soothing and healing in itself. If you're using fresh gel from a aloe leaf, I would expect about 1 tablespoon of gel to 1 drop of oil to be a good start. Mixed well and applied with either fingers or cotton balls. If that dilution is too painfull then of course further dilution would be required and alternately if you're not getting much of a buzz from the oil, try adding one drop at a time. I understand your dilemma with cuts to your anal region and possible caution with trying this treatment. If it is at all possible, using zinc oxide cream or lanolin as a barrier for a few days before trying treatment, to give the area a chance to heal some of the cuts and hopfully lessen the pain. Even wearing gloves to bed, as others have suggested previously to limit the amount of damage the nails do. Again, good luck and remember it's not a one off treatment but I truely believe with several applications, hopefully no more then twice a day for a few weeks you will feel and see excellent results and fingers crossed hopefully find a successful cure.

Hi all. I am a silent sufferer and oh my god how i have suffered ! the itch is like no other ....and i fully simpathize with anyone that has this ! generally my poor little bum knot starts that tickly prickaly tip toe of an itch just as im going to sleep ...but sometime now just before and especially after having a number twos ......the itch is like a little spider running around my ring piece he has spikey boots on and i pray each night it doesnt start ........because its totally impossible not to scratch it and when you do you cant stop until you feel like you have torn yourself apart =( its a nightmare truely.
I have tried antihistamine creams and they did work the best ....but dont seem to be as effective now. The best thing is Very Hot then Very cold water repeatedly splashed on itchy bum hole ...........but if you dont get to sleep after 30 mins or so it comes back ! I have tried Stuff for Tinea and Worms and Hemoriods ...........its not that ....I think im allergic to my own sweat ...and i spent most of my day sat on my arse at work draughting architectural plans so i cant avoid.
Well i just put some clove oil on so see how that goes ......It hurts/stings alot but i dont care. If anyone else can help please put your solution up dont let people suffer like me ...
