    I find Conotrane Cream very effective for pruritus ani. I think that in my case it kills the gut bacteria that I think are the cause, as whenever I was on antibiotics the itching stopped but returned immediately  when i finished the course.

If you have intermittent infammation and non infectious pruritus ani avoid using soaps (possibly spectroderm gel OK) and wipes (wet toilet paper better) as they are full of chemicals. Originally used all sorts of creams to no effect...
