    It's one thing to scratch your arm, or even your armpit, in public, but your butt? An itchy butt can be a cause of great discomfort and embarrassment. We've all found ourselves backing away from a conversation, unable to concentrate on anything but finding a bathroom and fast! Having an itchy butt once in a while can be attributed to a hasty wipe-up after a bowel movement, or tight underwear made out of a fabric other than cotton. If your butt is chronically itchy, you should find out why. It could be hemorrhoids, jock itch, lack of hygiene or even pinworms. Once you ascertain the problem, you can figure out how to get relief.

    Sometimes the cause of butt itch is simple. Perhaps your underwear are made out of a fabric other than cotton, or maybe they are too tight. Wear looser cotton underwear to prevent itch.

    Not wiping properly can also cause an itchy bum. Tush Wipes feel great and guarantee a fresh, clean butt. Tush Wipes come in small individual packs so you can take them everywhere.You should also wash at least once daily with mild soap.

    You could potentially have jock itch, a common fungal infection found in your thighs, buttocks and genitals. It looks like a red, ring-shaped rash and it itches like crazy. Jock itch is typically found in people who sweat a lot or who are overweight, but really, anyone can get it. You can even get jock itch from having athlete’s foot. To clear up your jock itch, you will need to apply an antifungal like Cruex.

    Hemorrhoids cause painful, burning butt itch. Hemorrhoids are swollen or inflamed veins in your anus and lower rectum. Over-the-counter suppositories, creams, ointments and pads can help immediately treat hemorrhoid discomfort. Calmol 4 suppositories work fast, so you can sit down comfortably sooner. Americaine Hemorrhoidal Ointment is a bestselling ointment that numbs your anus with 20% benzocaine. It is the strongest numbing product available for hemorrhoids. Witch hazel pads are another great treatment for hemorrhoids. They can help you clean up after bowel movements without further irritating your hemorrhoids.

    Pinworms are a type of roundworm infection. They are parasites that lay microscopic eggs that hatch into adults, measuring 0.2 to 0.4 inches. The worms grow in your intestine and go to your digestive system to lay eggs in the anal area. Then the worms escape out of your anus. Sounds awful, right? At first, pinworms won't cause any symptoms, but as the infection worsens, you will experience itching of the anal or vaginal area, insomnia, irritability and restlessness, and certain gastrointestinal symptoms like stomach aches and nausea. Pinworms can be treated with an over-the-counter remedy like Pin-X. You'll also need to wash all your clothes and bedding, and treat everyone you live with.

    To lessen your butt itch, you can apply a 1% hydrocortisone cream to the area twice a day. If you are still itching after a few days, you should see a doctor.
