Symptoms and Causes of an Itchy Buttocks
Probably one of the most common causes is hemorrhoids. These are little blood vessels in the anal canal that aid bowel movements, but when a person strains too much during their time on the toilet, they can become inflamed, sometimes sticking out of the anus.
Hemorrhoids can be painful, and can also cause an itching sensation. They are especially common in women who have just given birth and men who do a lot of heavy lifting.
The best treatment for hemorrhoids includes using Preparation H or Tucks pads, taking Sitz baths, drinking lots of hydrating fluids, and trying your best not to strain during a bowel movement. If your hemorrhoids stay the same or worsen after trying these treatments, see your doctor for further medical advice.
