Anal Yeast Infection
Anal yeast infection is a very common symptom of yeast infection and candida overgrowth. The most known symptoms are the itchy anus and itchy bum: rectal, anal itching (Pruritus ani) that may persistent or come and go.
A key part of the anal yeast infection treatment is to clearly confirm the cause. Itchy anus is a known symptom of additional conditions, and for this reason, it is usually best to have it checked by a medical professional. Especially since each cause may require a completely different treatment. Common examples may include hemorrhoids, anal fissure (a tear in the lining of the anus), parasitic infections such as pinworms, food sensitivities, and some medication.
If you have had an itchy anus for more than a week, we highly recommend that you should get tested by your doctor.

Anal Yeast Infection Symptoms
When you have anal yeast infection, the anal itching may be persistent or may come and go. It is very common for the infection to spread from the anus to the genitals and lead to vaginal yeast infections or penile yeast infection in men. Symptoms usually include:
- Anal itching.
- Infection may also spread to the genitals and other areas in the body.
Anal Yeast Infection Treatment
A common mistake when treating anal yeast infection, is to only treat the anus using topical creams. Very often, yeast infection in anus is caused by an excess overgrowth of candida and yeast in the body. In this case, there are usually additional symptoms in different areas in the body. Skin issues, fungal infections in nails, feet, digestive issues, mood swings are common examples.
Treat The Cause, Not The Symptoms
If you have multiple yeast infection symptoms in your body, there’s a good chance that the itchy bottom is only one symptom of a larger candida yeast problem in the body. As you can see in the table below, the treatment you may need is different and is designed to address the cause of the infection.

Creams For Anal Yeast Infection
Topical anus yeast infection creams do not always work. The reason is simple. Your itchy anus is already irritated. Applying a cream on the infection, even a natural one, can cause more irritation.
Ozonated olive oil is one of the best natural remedies for the anal yeast infection treatment that is also backed up by science as effective and safe. Unlike many antifungal creams that can cause more irritation, Ozonated olive oil has a unique ability to reduce the yeast infection infection on one hand, while helping to soothe skin irritation and accelerate wound healing at the same time.
Many human studies that compared Ozonated olive oil to prescription antifungal creams, suggested it as a safe and effective natural alternative to these drugs. Gentle enough for sensitive delicate areas such as vaginal yeast infections (1), gum infections (2) and oral infections (3), yet a very potent antifungal and effective for fungal and yeast infections.
- To use Ozonated olive oil: apply it after shower before bedtime for a few days, and see if it helps.

Anus & Other Areas Are Affected
When the anal yeast infection is caused by a candida overgrowth in the body, this usually indicates that there’s an imbalance in the gut that causes the candida yeast to grow out of control. For this reason, the treatment in this case usually includes dietary changes in order to help the body balance the candida yeast overgrowth internally. Anti-candida supplements are commonly used to help the body to naturally balance the infection.
