Over the last few months my anis has been very itchy. I thought it may be my food intake or my soap. Please help.

Might possible pinworms.  They can make your anus very itchy.  Try putting a piece of clear tape on your anus to see if you can see a worm after you pull it off.  (I don't think I was being very clear.  Let me try again.  At some point when you feel very itchy take a piece of clear tape and touch it to you anus area and then look at the tape to see if you picked up a worm.)  Or you can just go to the doctor and get yourself checked.  Good luck.
