Several factors may be at fault. A common cause is excessive cleansing of the area. Another one is excessive moisture in the anal area. Moisture may be due to perspiration or a small amount of residual stool around the anal area. Drinking some kinds of beverages (beverages containing caffeine and alcoholic beverages) and eating certain food items, such as chocolate, tomatoes, pop-corn and fruit, may also contribute to the onset of pruritus ani. These beverages and foods irritate the digestive system, thus increasing bowel movements and the quantity of mucus produced by the rectum.

Laboratory tests and clinical examinations (e.g. examination by a proctologist) are recommended to identify the definite cause of pruritus ani.
