In brief: It could be

It could be causing the itching by an infected discharge running over the vulva and anus.
Have your MD re examine for the same, and if reluctant get a 2nd opinion from a GYN MD.

In brief: Vaginal itching

The most common reason for a discharge with itching is a yeast infection.
If this discharge dribbles down it can also cause rectal itching. Your doctor can check the ph of your vagina, and do a KOH wet mount to look under the microscope to diagnose yeast. Yeast can be easily treated locally with monistat,terazol (terconazole) or nystatin cream. See your gynecologist.
