Constant itchy anus?

I'm male and 18 years old,I have had an itchy anus for a few months now,I haven't tried to treat it though.The itch is pretty much constant.I don't know whether it's just me but it seems to be worse when I think about it! I'm wondering whether the itch is because of jock itch,wouldn't be surprised if anxiety played a part in the itch!! Any help what's causing it?

Sounds like a yeast infection. The common causative agent is Candida albicans. Look on the Internet for home remedies. They will talk mostly about vaginal infections but it is the same organism. If home treatment doesn't help then see your doctor.
