Abstract

Pruritus ani is a common disease with a number of causes; therefore, effective treatment may be insufficient in the initial stages. The therapy is focused on the primary cause, if found. Broad differential diagnosis options need to be taken into consideration, and reevaluation of the therapy is a priority. When no obvious secondary cause is found, the empiric treatment is focused on an improvement of hygiene and change in the life style, removal of common irritators, and protection of perianal skin.
