There are many causes of anal itching like yeast infections,hamorrhoids,pinworms,anal fissures, skin tags, psoriasis etc. It is important to clean and dry the anus thoroughly and avoid leaving soap in the anal area. A complete history and clinical examination is essential for correct diagnosis and management. See a doctor. Treatment will depend on the cause.
Best luck and regards!
