Brief Answer:
Dewroming

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Yes, itching in the anus is commonly seen due to worm infestation specially due to pin work infestation. You may have to take deworming medication. A dose with combination of Ivermectin and Albendazole has to be taken.

Do consult your treating doctor for hand written prescription of the same. Albendazole of 100mg and Ivermectin 3mg is usual dose, discuss the same with your treating doctor.

Wish you good health.
