Anal Itch Remedies

| Modified on Jun 04, 2024

Let’s be honest, we have all been there – pretending you’re paying attention when all you can do is think of ways to find relief. You may be embarrassed to discuss such a sensitive issue as anal itching, but the reality is that it is a very common issue with a variety of causes. Whatever the cause, though, we have a few natural remedies for you that will actually offer relief, including apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and fresh garlic.

What Is Anal Itching?

A common condition, anal itching is an itch that is situated in the anus or on the skin directly around the anus. The condition is typically accompanied by a strong urge to scratch and is often embarrassing and rather uncomfortable. Additional symptoms of the condition, also known as Pruritus ani, include burning and soreness in and around the anus.

What Causes Pruritus Ani?

Identifying the underlying cause of the condition is often considered one of the most important steps toward treating the itch. The condition has a number of common causes including skin irritation, digestive issues, hemorrhoids, infection, skin disease, and anal tumors.

Can I Get Rid of the Itch with Natural Treatments?

While most rectal itching does not require medical treatment, seeking treatment can offer faster relief and healing. While the exact cause of the condition often warrants specific treatment, we have found apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and fresh garlic to be effective treatments to an assortment of causes of anal itching. Additionally, avoid scratching, wearing tight underwear, and taking bubble baths to prevent further irritation.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

One of the key causes of anal itching is general acidity in the body. As such, taking a daily dose of 2 tablespoons of ACV diluted in 8 ounces of water is an effective way to treat the condition, as it helps alkalize the body. It also helps fight infection and support overall health.

2. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is a natural infection-fighting agent, so it helps eliminate the cause of the condition. It also helps relieve inflammation that may be contributing to the condition.

3. Fresh Garlic

Garlic helps treat the condition from the inside out. It helps to eliminate intestinal infection as well as to relieve inflammation throughout the body.

In addition to these remedies, you may want to try warm sitz baths as well as witch hazel for additional relief. We also suggest searching our database of reader contributed treatment options to find even more relief. Please let us know what you tried to heal your anal itch!

I too found much of the feedback on anal burning & itching very funny.. Though I know its very a very personal & distressing problem. My experience is that its usually due to

a. general acidity of the system:

this can be remedied quite quickly by drinking plenty of raw vegetable juice made & drunk right away.. Especially carrot with a green apple & a little fresh ginger added. And, an enema with warm water with a 1/4cup of liquid chlorophyll added.

You'll be amazed how 'miraculously' the burning will disappear.

b. worms

Believe it or not, worms in the colon (large intestine) are more common than one would imagine. In this case Before breakfast, 3 cloves of raw garlic, chopped well & left to sit out on the chopping board

for 15mins, then swallowed down with a glass of water.. (3 Beanos tabs taken with will prevent gas)

then eat a bowl of oatmeal or toast for breakfast.

The garlic taken as above every morning for 7 days will kill any invaders, & help to lower blood pressure & cholesterol levels. Plus its a marvelous anti fungal, anti viral & anti bacterial. Again, take the warm water enema with the added 1/4cup of liquid chlorophyll once a day (I recommend Dr. Jensens liquid chlorophyll). Topically I have found applying a warm moist wash cloth to the rectal area followed with a good smear of wheat germ oil is very soothing. As another person mentioned Virgin Coconut oil is also very helpful

..However, alkalising the system with fresh vegetable juices (not fruit), & relieving the bowel of some of its waste with a simple natural non painful enema (as mentioned in the Bible) is THE solution in my opinion. (one can buy the hotwater bottle with enema attachments at any big pharmacy)

Thanks for all input to this great site.

I tried aloe vera and tea tree oil applied to itch. Then ate raw garlic first thing in morning, as per advice on this site. This, combined with applying cider apple vinegar, cleared it up in a few days.... after months of discomfort.

It's very common and natural and called Pruritus Ani. Too many people suggest it's because you need to clean more but they are wrong and actually that makes it worse if you clean too much. It's the constant rubbing with toilet paper that removes the body's natural oils and irritates the sensitive skin. The best solution is to clean with water and little or no soap (as soap can dry the skin out also) and stop the wiping with toilet paper. Water is cleaner anyways and healthier too. The most convenient and efficient way to clean with water is not to take a shower every time or jumping up on the sink but with a Hand Bidet Sprayer. They locate right at the toilet and require no new plumbing. The itch will go away and not come back.

I have had the itch for over 30 years. It used to keep me awake but I have overcome that. One thing no one should ever do is use a loofa on their anus. It feels so good while you are scratching with it. Then the fire starts. It takes several days for it to heal enough to take a comfortable poop. Don't do it! I have tried everything, some things work and others don't. I wish I could make it go away forever. For years I used my aloe plant, it was known by my family as mom's malady muck. I do think that vinegar is the best choice overall.

Ok, it's been a week now and I've had ups and downs thx to reading this page. My butt was so itchy I woke up crying and drove myself to the 24 hour pharmacy. Mind you I'm a 42 year old man, this condition has been so frustrating, embarassing, and has taken over my life.

I tried tea tree oil. A little relief.

I tried Apple Cider Vinegar. OUCH! Made my sensitive area worse.

I tried Zinc Oxide, major change, but now I want the cure.

Witch Hazel is wonderful, but I think we are gonna see a doctor tomorrow. I've narrowed the iritation down to only when I have to poop. What does that mean people?

You haven't been taking probiotics by any chance, have you? I'm asking because I had that problem when I started them and when I went off of them.

The best remedy ever is to take a warm sitz bath after bowel movements. Adding a little Witch Hazel to the water - even better. It's soothing, healing and I'll bet you even find it 'curing'. Good luck. I feel for you. It's no fun.

Its definiatly fungal.. If you do nothing it will clear up in a few years. The firsts thing I would try would be Virgin coconut oil internaly and externaly. Start off with three teaspoons a day and smear the oil into the anal cavity and around the buttocks. If this dosnt work (Im sure it will) then try another antifungal. Wash hands thoroughly to avoid reinfrction.

Back in 2008 I had a bad itch not only on my Butt but also on my anus, upper thighs between the legs, both tesicles and the tip of the penis. From what I now believe it was most likely a male yeast infection or some type of severe jock itch. Even though I used tea tree oil and aloe it came back with a vengeance. I then found using 91% Isoproply Alcohol on cotton rounds or on cotton pads applied to the areas that itched took care of ALL of the itch problems. It will burn like Heck and you will question if this should be happening but it is killing either the yeast, fungus or fungi. How if I could just get rid of the white tonuge... But no more burning down below and that was a couple of years ago. It was driving me crazy... G/l

CC from SLC: You have a yeast infection in your mouth. I don't know of an herbal or "natural" remedy but I had thrush (yeast in the mouth) after a surgery I had and was put on clotrimazole lozenges. It worked in about a week and I quit taking them and it never returned.

I bought a natural cream from England that contains tea tree oil along with beeswax, coconut oil and loads of other stuff. This is the only thing that has worked for me and I would strongly recommend it. I used to wake up three to 4 times a night with an itch and it drove me mad. Of course scratching it caused bleeding and soreness. I apply it morning and night and for the past six months I've been great.

Once you've ruled out thread worms you have probably got Ani puritus, which is really common in adults. Unfortunately there isn't a definite cure, you will remain susceptible to problems, unless you manage your diet, health and hygiene. Rubbing too hard with toilet paper or not cleaning properly are both culprits. There's now help on the market that lubricates and aids cleansing. Hope you get happy relief.

Cure for chronic Anal Itch:

So many ailments of mine have been cured by things that people have taken the time to post on here. So it's time for me to contribute!

I've been suffering from severe anal itch since I got pregnant with my daughter 3 years ago. It would go away temporarily but then would always come back. I tried EVERYTHING. From trial and error, I finally discovered something that works for me. Hopefully it helps somebody.

Here it is:

Soak mini cotton balls (not q-tips) in witch hazel/aloe combo. Shape them in a skinny-ish narrow shapes. If you can't find little ones, break them in half. Put in freezer. Once frozen, insert whenever needed. I tried coating with coconut oil to help ease them in, but I found that the oil caused more irritation. Sorry for TMI but you kind of have to apply a bit of pressure to get in. But once in, oh my gosh it is COLD. I urge you to grin and bear it because it instantly relieves the itch, and after a minute it is extremely soothing. Leave in for as long as you can, but I don't recommend overnight because it will start to bug you. Use these whenever needed until the problem is resolved. It took about three days for my problem to go away completely.

The frozen factor relieves the swelling and irritation, which I believe was THE key to curing my problem. Keeping the swelling and irritation down so that the area had a chance to heal.

I tried frozen ACV cotton balls first, but I believe that unless you have some sort of infection in there, the vinegar is too harsh for that area and will slow/prevent the healing process.

Hope this helps somebody!!

I tried nearly everything on this earth clinic list for anal itch for about a month. Sometimes the itch would stop for a bit but just continue. It felt more like crawling rather than itching. In my case it is yeast. The only thing that stopped it was prebiotic suppositories for yeast infection. It says it's for vaginal but I used for anal in the morning and at night.

I also took a 9 multi-strain candida formula to drink 1 tsp morning and night. This stopped it immediately!

It also helps to follow an anti-candida diet, no starches, breads, sugar, alcohol. Look up 10 best foods to combat candida. There are also teas and supplements to fight yeast.

I have been going absolutely crazy with (embarassing!) anal itching. However, today, I tried a cream I bought in Mexico, called "Comazol. " The key ingredient is Ketoconazol. This is a prescription in the States. (Not a prescription in Mexico) However, perhaps, it would be available on a Canadian website... Not sure. It was absolute MAGIC! Everything (including my vaginal area, which also itched) stopped itching within ten minutes. Not sure if it's a "cure, " yet. Praying it is. Hope this helps someone....

I tried a lot of different things, nothing seemed to help until I tried Lotrimin AF (the orange one for athlete's foot). This is 1% Clotrimazol, don't use Generic and don't use the yellow Lotrimin. Get the orange Lotrimin AF. This stuff worked like a charm. Apply 3 times a day until itch is relieved. I think I only had to do this for 3-5 days.

Other product I've used is Balneol, which helps reduce irritation a lot. It doesn't take away the itching, but it can prevent some of the irritation, which causes the itching.

Good luck.

Ok, so I has a VERY itch butt. There was small white little crumble discharge, that was the itchyness. It had been going on for a couple months. I was gonna try some natural things first, then last resort, the doctor. I'm a believer in apple cider vinegar. It work like a charm on acne! I was reading all the itchy butt refleif stories, so I thought I would give it a try. I soaked a cotton ball in organic apple cider vinegar with the mother( actually with a little of the mother on it)i put it just right inside the hole for 10 min-that's were I believe I went terribly wrong! It burned like crazy the whole time! I took it out and immediately horrendous pain!! The worst pain I believe I've ever experienced. I could barely move or breath the pain was undescribably. I thought I was going to pass out but knew if I did I would most definitely rip it more and wouldn't be able to get up of the floor. I filled the bathroom sink with warm water, coconut oil olive oil, tea tree oil and tried my hardest to sit in it because the bath trying was impossible to get back it( I could lift me legs up that high because of the pain.

I began searching this site for doing some kind of relief. I tried extra virgin olive oil, aloe Vera from the plant and the bottle- I was too far gone.. I some how barely made it on my bed in the worst position ( the only one that wasn't so painful. I'm surprised my neighbors didn't call the ambulance with all the noise I made for so many hours. I was sweating and exhausted. Luckily I remembered I had some left over pain pills from a old surgery! I feel like that thing saved my life! I tried all the other natural cures that I had ingredients to at my house.

Anyways I was not able to view the damage I did to myself until I woke up the next am. The taint, or the little flap of skin in-between your vagina and anus burst in a couple places and where I put the soaked cotton ball, shredded inside and outside it! Puss everywhere and a little blood. I called out to work that day and slept the whole day until 9 pm( 24 hrs later) I've been doing a couple sitz baths with olive oil, coconut oil, epsom salt then pour olive oil all over it after each bath the last two days, still lots of puss and can hardly walk . I guess I drew out the infection, man it was rough! I will NEVER DO THAT AGAIN, especially since I did it the wrong way. I am still a believer in the apple cider vinegar remedies, just not for me down there in the booty department. Sorry to be a complainer, I think this site is great and tell people about it when I can. I should have read more carefully.

I have had this itching problem for about ten days. I called the Doctor and she sent a cream. I have used it for about 5 days and it has shown some relief. Today I got some apple Cider Vinegar. It helped but, then I put some more and left it there for a few minutes. When I took the cloth out, it had some surface blood on it. I dried the area up and have checked several times since without seeing any blood. So, I guess that you have to be careful about using this.

Anal Itch: OMG Apple cider vinegar works! The itch/burning had been driving me mad for several months, on and off, following supposed prostatitis (which was much improved with simple stretches - google Heal Pelvic Pain book - my doctors didn't have a clue) I tried coconut oil with some relief, but the ACV worked almost immediately. No stinging and I've got my mojo back. Thank you so much! Try it.

Replied by Larry

I wet a cotton ball with ACV and stick it at the anal opening. It will sting a bit at first. Leave it there for a minute or so. Relief is almost instant. If it has a blood stain on it, when you remove it you probably have a hemorrhoid. You will have to repeat as necessary. But works rather fast for me.

I've had itchy rectal area for several years. When I stop using hot spices it goes away- when I go back to hot spices it comes back. I think the spices inflame hemmoroids and fissures and cause itching and pain. I use wet wipes to clean the rectal area after using the bathroom and that helps. Vinegar helps somewhat. My pharmacist told me to use hydrocortisone cream for the itchness for a few days (around the outside of rectum only)to heal and lay off the spices.

Everyone here is so good natured about this uncomfortable problem. My poor 11 year old has had an itchy butt on and off for a couple of months. We have tried Prep-H and that does next to nothing. By the time we get to the doctor the symptoms have disappeared. Hoping a specialist can rule out other things, but in the meantime I am going to see if he is willing to try the ACV followed by aloe. He does sit on his butt a lot while playing video games (but manages to play outside a lot too! ) and he sits on a donut pillow, but I bet that contributes to his condition. Anyway, thanks for the advice, and I will post again once we try the ACV and aloe.

If you take too much acidolphilus or any probiotic supplement you will definitely get an itchy butt--I guarantee it! That is one easy way to tell if you are overdosing. You will think you have pinworms as it feels like just like something is moving or crawling at the anal opening.

08/11/2009 I think that must be true about too much probiotics causing an itchy butt. I have never had this problem, despite having IBS, irritation...yes...but itching like crazy like this..never!! It's so annoying. I haven't taken any probiotics today to see if it will help. I just recently started them and then upped the amount. I will definitely cut back. As far as trying to get rid of the itch...some improvement with the tea tree oil on a cotton ball. Kept it on there for about 5 mins. Felt cooling and soothing, minor sting, not bad at all, but only lessened the itch. So I put some zinc oxide ointment which kept it under control most of the day, but now it's itching again. I just put some VCO to see how that helps. No change yet. But hoping it will stop eventually with reducing the probiotics!!

Okay... It`s been few months that I am suffering from this itchying where I got to a point that I couldnt take anymore. Went to the doctor and did a full treatment for worms(6 X meza*&&^ can`t remember the medicine name)anyway it didnt work. Went back and collected a sample for scan and the result didnt show any kind of parasites. So I found this BRILIANT article about the Apple CIder Vinegar which made me scream in the toilet :) but it felt good!! Oh yahhh. I have to say that sorted me out, but what`s happening now its that becomes itchy after using the toilet( after a shit).. Where I have to use the ACV again! Im wondering that could be my diet as I am very much into weight training(carb cycling at the moment). Could it be too much protein? considering that I eat every 3-4 hours.. 7 meals /day.

I am often skeptical about natural miracle cures but I have to admit Christine was right on this one. Last night my anus was itchy and burning to the point of insanity. After reading this I gathered I had nothing left to lose. I got the ACV I already had in my cupboard, put a bit on a piece of kitchen towl and tucked it between my cheeks for a minute. The initial sting was unpleasant but if you get to the point I was at it would be the least of your worries. I removed the kitchen towl then applied a little aloe vera gel to help the burning. 20 mins later the itch had practically gone and I was able to sleep. My only regret is that I hadnt read this at the beginning of the night! Thanks for your help and I would recommend this remedy to anyone.

Banana Peel
Posted by G (Wherever, Fl, USA) on 09/26/2012

I suffered from an itchy butt for about 4 or 5 years. And this wasn't just an occasional off-and-on itch either. This was EVERY DAY. It was horrible. Especially at night. It was impossible to get a good night's sleep. And I loves me some sleep. That was probably the worst part. And I tried everything. Apple cider vinegar. Coconut oil. Tea tree oil. Rubbing Alcohol. Zinc Oxide. Nothing worked.

And then I tried a banana peel. I had used it before on warts with success, but I didn't realize its potential for other skin ailments until I read about people using it for dermatitis and eczema. So I figured I'd give it a go. I took a banana peel. Scraped off some of the inside gunk. Not all of it. Just enough to not make a total mess in there. And then I just kinda stuck it in between my butt cheeks and left it there for an hour or so. When I first applied it, the itch became worse. But it's important to resist the urge to remove the peel. After a few minutes the intense itching should go away. To my surprise, the next day my itchy butt had diminished significantly. I finally was able to have a good night's sleep. However, I'm not entirely cured. I find that I have to do this every few days. Also, alcohol is a huge factor for me. If I drink, the itch and soreness quickly returns, so I have to limit how often I over-indulge in alcohol. But the banana peel gave me my life back. Give it a try. All hail the almighty banana peel!!
