Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
In children, often encountered the habit of scratching the buttocks, especially at night and after noticing it is not uncommon to itch and scratch done on the anus, several things that can cause a sensation of itching in the anus of children:
Irritation of the skin around the anus and genitals, which is usually caused by wearing pants too tight and skin friction
Perianal infection or around the anus
In order to get the right treatment and if your child's complaint does not improve, or if you are worried, it is advisable to have your child consulted by a pediatrician so that your child can be examined directly by a doctor
For a while:
Avoid scratching the anus
Wash thoroughly after defecating or small
Increase fluid intake
Maintain cleanliness of food, drinks including cleanliness of cutlery
Familiarize children to wash their hands diligently
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
