re: Pruritus Anii

Pruritus ani is a common problem. Conditions that may be contributory to pruritus ani include dermatitis, psoriasis, infectious causes (bacteria, yeast, pinworms etc.), or irritating digestive products. Symptoms will be worse with diarrhea, constipation, scratching, acidic or spicy food, vigorous use of toilet paper, excessive scrubbing with soap and water.
