Overview of an Itchy Anus

Anal itching is a common symptom. In fact, it occurs a lot more than people talk about it. An itchy anus can be harmless, but other times it can be related to an STD, as contracted through anal sex. The most common STDs that can cause anal itching include chlamydia, gonorrhea and genital herpes.

Diagnosing Possible STD Symptoms

When caused by chlamydia and gonorrhea, an anal STD infection can be diagnosed through a painless anal swab, which can be performed through private, at-home STD testing. Genital herpes can be diagnosed through a simple blood test.

Other causes of anal itching can include a yeast infection, hemorrhoids, digestive issues, other infections and general skin irritation.

Treating an Itchy Anus

Treatment of symptoms will depend on the cause. STDs chlamydia and gonorrhea are cured through antibiotics, while herpes is treated with antiviral medication.

Over-the-counter anti-itch cream with hydrocortisone can help alleviate symptoms.  However, it is important to consult a doctor in case an underlying problem is causing anal or rectal itching.
