See Dr: Probably local irritation and/ or hemorrhoids. Need professional evaluation because of other possible causes. Meanwhile use skin lotion on bathroom paper to clean anal skin. Do this after any bowel movement. Do this whenever the area feels wet. Do this whenever the area feels itchy or irritated. Clean around + inside anus with the lotion on soft bathroom paper.
