In brief: Various causes

Hemorrhoids, pinworm, anal fissure, anal/rectal cancer, certain foods/drinks (eg with caffeine), psoriasis, stds, localized allergic reaction, others, can cause anal pruritus (itching).
Symptoms that persist beyond a few days would benefit from evaluation.

In brief: Tingling or itching

Can be from pruritis ani which is most often caused by excessive caffeine and/or moisture and classically wakes one from their sleep with itching.
Eliminate all caffeine, beer and keep the area dry with corn starch powder and this should go away.
