Reply to "Itchiness out of control"

Are you taking antibiotics? Antibiotics makes one prone to yeast infections and the itchiness could signal a yeast infection. Applying lotions and Vaseline on it bathe it in a moisture that yeast love and thrive in. Yeast effects the skin in areas where the sun don't shine and where moisture collects. You can't bathe your anus in sunlight, but you can keep it dry and try an antifungal powder like Zeabsorb. 

You might want to see a dermatologist. When I have had past fungal infections on my skin it's a 30 second diagnosis after a superficial scraping of the skin and peek under the microscope. Best treatment for now is blow dryer to the anus at night and morning, keep it dry and apply Zeabsorb morning and night.
