I too found much of the feedback on anal burning & itching very funny.. Though I know its very a very personal & distressing problem. My experience is that its usually due to
a. general acidity of the system:
this can be remedied quite quickly by drinking plenty of raw vegetable juice made & drunk right away.. Especially carrot with a green apple & a little fresh ginger added. And, an enema with warm water with a 1/4cup of liquid chlorophyll added.
You'll be amazed how 'miraculously' the burning will disappear.
Believe it or not, worms in the colon (large intestine) are more common than one would imagine. In this case Before breakfast, 3 cloves of raw garlic, chopped well & left to sit out on the chopping board
for 15mins, then swallowed down with a glass of water.. (3 Beanos tabs taken with will prevent gas)
then eat a bowl of oatmeal or toast for breakfast.
The garlic taken as above every morning for 7 days will kill any invaders, & help to lower blood pressure & cholesterol levels. Plus its a marvelous anti fungal, anti viral & anti bacterial. Again, take the warm water enema with the added 1/4cup of liquid chlorophyll once a day (I recommend Dr. Jensens liquid chlorophyll). Topically I have found applying a warm moist wash cloth to the rectal area followed with a good smear of wheat germ oil is very soothing. As another person mentioned Virgin Coconut oil is also very helpful
..However, alkalising the system with fresh vegetable juices (not fruit), & relieving the bowel of some of its waste with a simple natural non painful enema (as mentioned in the Bible) is THE solution in my opinion. (one can buy the hotwater bottle with enema attachments at any big pharmacy)
I have had the itch for over 30 years. It used to keep me awake but I have overcome that. One thing no one should ever do is use a loofa on their anus. It feels so good while you are scratching with it. Then the fire starts. It takes several days for it to heal enough to take a comfortable poop. Don't do it! I have tried everything, some things work and others don't. I wish I could make it go away forever. For years I used my aloe plant, it was known by my family as mom's malady muck. I do think that vinegar is the best choice overall.
I had a Itchy/Burning Butt and Reddish Anus (Ouch!) - Doc said to use baby wipes and no dye no fragrance toilet paper (no help). I found with using Aloe (Aloe Vera Skin Gel) & Tea Tree Therapy (Tea Tree Oil Antiseptic Cream) applied to the area that hurt took care of my problem. Thx.

Cure for chronic Anal Itch:
So many ailments of mine have been cured by things that people have taken the time to post on here. So it's time for me to contribute!
I've been suffering from severe anal itch since I got pregnant with my daughter 3 years ago. It would go away temporarily but then would always come back. I tried EVERYTHING. From trial and error, I finally discovered something that works for me. Hopefully it helps somebody.
Here it is:
Soak mini cotton balls (not q-tips) in witch hazel/aloe combo. Shape them in a skinny-ish narrow shapes. If you can't find little ones, break them in half. Put in freezer. Once frozen, insert whenever needed. I tried coating with coconut oil to help ease them in, but I found that the oil caused more irritation. Sorry for TMI but you kind of have to apply a bit of pressure to get in. But once in, oh my gosh it is COLD. I urge you to grin and bear it because it instantly relieves the itch, and after a minute it is extremely soothing. Leave in for as long as you can, but I don't recommend overnight because it will start to bug you. Use these whenever needed until the problem is resolved. It took about three days for my problem to go away completely.
The frozen factor relieves the swelling and irritation, which I believe was THE key to curing my problem. Keeping the swelling and irritation down so that the area had a chance to heal.
I tried frozen ACV cotton balls first, but I believe that unless you have some sort of infection in there, the vinegar is too harsh for that area and will slow/prevent the healing process.
Hope this helps somebody!!
I tried nearly everything on this earth clinic list for anal itch for about a month. Sometimes the itch would stop for a bit but just continue. It felt more like crawling rather than itching. In my case it is yeast. The only thing that stopped it was prebiotic suppositories for yeast infection. It says it's for vaginal but I used for anal in the morning and at night.
I also took a 9 multi-strain candida formula to drink 1 tsp morning and night. This stopped it immediately!
It also helps to follow an anti-candida diet, no starches, breads, sugar, alcohol. Look up 10 best foods to combat candida. There are also teas and supplements to fight yeast.
I have been going absolutely crazy with (embarassing!) anal itching. However, today, I tried a cream I bought in Mexico, called "Comazol. " The key ingredient is Ketoconazol. This is a prescription in the States. (Not a prescription in Mexico) However, perhaps, it would be available on a Canadian website... Not sure. It was absolute MAGIC! Everything (including my vaginal area, which also itched) stopped itching within ten minutes. Not sure if it's a "cure, " yet. Praying it is. Hope this helps someone....
Ok, so I has a VERY itch butt. There was small white little crumble discharge, that was the itchyness. It had been going on for a couple months. I was gonna try some natural things first, then last resort, the doctor. I'm a believer in apple cider vinegar. It work like a charm on acne! I was reading all the itchy butt refleif stories, so I thought I would give it a try. I soaked a cotton ball in organic apple cider vinegar with the mother( actually with a little of the mother on it)i put it just right inside the hole for 10 min-that's were I believe I went terribly wrong! It burned like crazy the whole time! I took it out and immediately horrendous pain!! The worst pain I believe I've ever experienced. I could barely move or breath the pain was undescribably. I thought I was going to pass out but knew if I did I would most definitely rip it more and wouldn't be able to get up of the floor. I filled the bathroom sink with warm water, coconut oil olive oil, tea tree oil and tried my hardest to sit in it because the bath trying was impossible to get back it( I could lift me legs up that high because of the pain.
I began searching this site for doing some kind of relief. I tried extra virgin olive oil, aloe Vera from the plant and the bottle- I was too far gone.. I some how barely made it on my bed in the worst position ( the only one that wasn't so painful. I'm surprised my neighbors didn't call the ambulance with all the noise I made for so many hours. I was sweating and exhausted. Luckily I remembered I had some left over pain pills from a old surgery! I feel like that thing saved my life! I tried all the other natural cures that I had ingredients to at my house.
Anyways I was not able to view the damage I did to myself until I woke up the next am. The taint, or the little flap of skin in-between your vagina and anus burst in a couple places and where I put the soaked cotton ball, shredded inside and outside it! Puss everywhere and a little blood. I called out to work that day and slept the whole day until 9 pm( 24 hrs later) I've been doing a couple sitz baths with olive oil, coconut oil, epsom salt then pour olive oil all over it after each bath the last two days, still lots of puss and can hardly walk . I guess I drew out the infection, man it was rough! I will NEVER DO THAT AGAIN, especially since I did it the wrong way. I am still a believer in the apple cider vinegar remedies, just not for me down there in the booty department. Sorry to be a complainer, I think this site is great and tell people about it when I can. I should have read more carefully.
I have had this itching problem for about ten days. I called the Doctor and she sent a cream. I have used it for about 5 days and it has shown some relief. Today I got some apple Cider Vinegar. It helped but, then I put some more and left it there for a few minutes. When I took the cloth out, it had some surface blood on it. I dried the area up and have checked several times since without seeing any blood. So, I guess that you have to be careful about using this.
Anal Itch: OMG Apple cider vinegar works! The itch/burning had been driving me mad for several months, on and off, following supposed prostatitis (which was much improved with simple stretches - google Heal Pelvic Pain book - my doctors didn't have a clue) I tried coconut oil with some relief, but the ACV worked almost immediately. No stinging and I've got my mojo back. Thank you so much! Try it.

I have to thank everyone who posted information about ACV for anal itch. I been having this problem for 6 months and nothing helped. The only thing I did different was to soak in a bath of hot water with a cup of white vinegar. Then I followed up with the ACV, Tea Tree oil and Coconut oil. I problem went away that night. Thank you all.
Everyone here is so good natured about this uncomfortable problem. My poor 11 year old has had an itchy butt on and off for a couple of months. We have tried Prep-H and that does next to nothing. By the time we get to the doctor the symptoms have disappeared. Hoping a specialist can rule out other things, but in the meantime I am going to see if he is willing to try the ACV followed by aloe. He does sit on his butt a lot while playing video games (but manages to play outside a lot too! ) and he sits on a donut pillow, but I bet that contributes to his condition. Anyway, thanks for the advice, and I will post again once we try the ACV and aloe.
itchy butt: Love love love this website. I'm very much into natural healing and run from anything that comes from Big Pharma. I've got to say that I about fell out when I was reading about people's "itchy butt" - side splitters, these testimonials. Please, I'm not making fun, we've all had itchy butt at least once. Christine from NY - loved your comments and the guy that asked his girlfriend to blow on his backside. . . I'm still laughing! OK, back to my reading - too funny!

Well I stopped eating peanuts and my rectum stopped itching. so much that if it says "may contain peanuts" I won't eat it any more It's nice to know what was causing that horrable itch ya can't scratch in public. Also coconut oil for anything ichy or red down there and I get relief.
Banana peel the inside with the white part just rub on the effected area and a little sting then the itch is gone ...cures anal itch.
I suffered from an itchy butt for about 4 or 5 years. And this wasn't just an occasional off-and-on itch either. This was EVERY DAY. It was horrible. Especially at night. It was impossible to get a good night's sleep. And I loves me some sleep. That was probably the worst part. And I tried everything. Apple cider vinegar. Coconut oil. Tea tree oil. Rubbing Alcohol. Zinc Oxide. Nothing worked.
And then I tried a banana peel. I had used it before on warts with success, but I didn't realize its potential for other skin ailments until I read about people using it for dermatitis and eczema. So I figured I'd give it a go. I took a banana peel. Scraped off some of the inside gunk. Not all of it. Just enough to not make a total mess in there. And then I just kinda stuck it in between my butt cheeks and left it there for an hour or so. When I first applied it, the itch became worse. But it's important to resist the urge to remove the peel. After a few minutes the intense itching should go away. To my surprise, the next day my itchy butt had diminished significantly. I finally was able to have a good night's sleep. However, I'm not entirely cured. I find that I have to do this every few days. Also, alcohol is a huge factor for me. If I drink, the itch and soreness quickly returns, so I have to limit how often I over-indulge in alcohol. But the banana peel gave me my life back. Give it a try. All hail the almighty banana peel!!
