Cause/cure of anal itch?

I have an itch extending from the top of my anus through the other side of my (? crotch?).  I use the 4% OTC cream on it, which helps, but I have to keep doing it.  I've had thisitch before, and it eventually went away.

Any ideas what causes it, and how to treat it?  Thanks.  And what's the name of that part of the body where your2 legs meet and there's a kind of seam?  Is "crotch" the correct name?
