what to do when toddlers put fingers in private areas?

I am having issues with my almost 4 year old son putting his finger in his anus. For one, he could get extremely sick by doing this, two, it is so disgusting and three, I feel it is inappropriate at his age to be doing this. I understand that most children expolore their bodies but I have never heard about them puting their finger in their anus. I am very worried about this issue. He spends most of his time with me but does go to a program at school for children with special needs. I'm not concerned that he is being sexually abused in any way what so ever, I just want this to stop. It is so disgusting. :/
Thank you for your time,

Try this technique. Rub the earlobes of your child for 1minute. Do this regularly. Maybe an interval of 2 hours.
You observe until how long it lasts then do it again.
