In brief: Sure

You can use it to make you feel more comfortable BUT it is important that you find out why you have anal itching.
See your physician.

In brief: Can try

It certainly would not hurt to try.
If the anal itching is due to dry skin or some contact dermatitis it might be that the diaper cream will help. If it is due to something like pinworms then it will not help.
