It is possible that you have a hook worm infection. Therefore, I suggest that you de-worm yourself. There are also other causes, like anal pruritis. This has to be treated with a topical cream. If a skin tag or hemrrhoids are present, you can use Anusol suppositries with Scheriproct cream.

Consult your pharmacist, as the medication is available over the counter.

If your symptoms are persistent, consult your doctor for an examination.
