Snort at the following around. Been there done that. The more you itch it for them the worse they beg.. I would use Desitin baby butt ointment, or the store brand equivalent. Don't be shy, just put squeeze it there and then reach in and rub it around. LOL

Try a antibacterial/antifungal shampoo like Quit Itch (do you guys have that over there?) You can apply it straight and leave it there, or mix it with water and use like a regular shampoo. My boy gets an itchy butt/tail this time of year and the quit itch does wonders.
If you find it's bug related (ie they're bites or something) try adding a teaspoon of garlic to a hard feed once or twice a day, helps keep them bugs off :)
