In brief: Number one cause of
This, pruritus ani, itchy butt, is excessive caffeine.
Beer also tends to make this worse as does excessive perspiration. Stop all caffeine and beer and use cornstarch powder liberall to the area several times per day and at bedtime. Caffeine classicly causes the itching especially if it wakes from your sleep at night.
