In brief: "Pruritis Ani"
There are many causes.
Pinworms, hemorrhoids, yeast infections, poor hygiene, sexual practices, medications, lotions, creams and other topicals applied to the area may cause itching. Moisture from sweating or bathing suits may cause itching. Viral infections, maceration of skin from rubbing or scratching or other trauma may cause this as well. Try good hygiene, drying the area, and observe.
