The reason I ask this question is bc these past few days off and on my butt would feel itchy I would then have to go get a wipe and give it a good scratch. I couldn't jump in the shower bc I babysit during the day. It sometimes feels like a hair tickling too.
But what could it be? I don't think it is bc I am not clean bc I am and I don't have hemorroids so what is going on?

You may not have hemorrhoids, but it is hemorrhoidal tissue that could be irritated. Try those "tuck" pads or some witch hazel. Also you could use a little gold bond after your clean up, my hub's swears by it if he has an itch "down under" !! I worked in a Pharmacy for 14 years - this is a common complaint actually!!

I could also mean you have Pinworms. I know that sounds gross, but itchy butt hole is a really good sign of worms. It's actually common...gross i know, but you need to get treatment if you have pinworms. Maybe a trip to the Dr. Might be a good idea. Here is a link to info about pinworms...

"Symptoms are worse at night when the female worms are most active and crawl out of the anus to deposit their eggs." OMG that is going to have me crawling right out of my skin if my butt EVER itches even a slight bit at night!!!!!!
