Anal Itching

Anal and rectal itching (pruritus) is usually not a sign of a serious disease. The skin may appear red, but itching and scratching may make the skin turn white.

Common causes include hemorrhoids, infections, diet, excessive use of vitamin C or caffeine, medicines such as antibiotics that cause diarrhea or constipation, poor or excessive cleaning, and the use of scented toilet paper, scented soap or over-the-counter ointments such as Preparation H.
The key to preventing colon or rectal cancer is getting screened.
