milke's right, but i'll throw out one more possibility. Hemorrhoids. They will make your butt itch. they have a second symptom, and that's bleeding during defecation. so if you have both, then it can be hemorrhoids.
pin worms are super common. They usually act up at night. Pin worms are treated with over the counter medication here in Canada, along with washing the sheets in super hot water. To determine if you have pin worms you need to 'catch' them. I read in my parenting book that you can put some double sided tape on the end of a stick (I am guessing maybe a new, clean popsicle stick) and touch around the anus with it. You have to do it at night though, after you have been resting for a bit. My mom used to come into our rooms in the middle of the night and check our bums for them whenever we complained about it. There is tonnes of info on pin worms out there.
