Is it necessary to find a pinworm, or can the doctor prescribe medicine just for butt itching?

In brief: ????????????

If you want to treat butt itching use a cold wash wrag and apply OTC hydrocortisone twice a day.
That helps if you have PW or not. Since food intolerance, food allergy, yeast, strep and many other agents can cause an itchy butt, your chance of getting relief by assuming the cause is minimal.

In brief: Many causes of itch

Lots of things can cause anal itching.
..Finding a worm or the eggs narrows the the diagnosis.
