Strange yet really annoying itch

I dunno if this is the right place to ask , but i have the most annoying itchy skin around my anus.It will be itchy a the most random times.It wakes me up at night and i'm itchy.When i wear thongs it sometimes gets itchy.But most of the time it fine. I am a total hygene freak in that area and clean all the time very well.Could it be possible that i clean too well and might have ecsima around my anus.Cos i have never had anul sex and my boyfriend uses protection most of the time.
Should i maybe use some kind of anti fungal cream?

hi there, i've had the same problem for 7 years! went to my gynae last week and she told me to clean the area gently using wet wipes when going to the loo, she mentioned a cream that they use for babies, i think its Kamillo or something like that, but i never used it yet. She also mentioned that I shouldn't use soap in that area...try your verrrry best not to scratch, its been two weeks and I hardly have this problem, only some mornings now. I know its a horrible embarrassing condition. Also dont use bubble bath and if the area gets moist because of sweat, try using keep a tissue there to keep it dry, you can change it every couple of hours. Let me know if this helps...
