Start at primary Dr.: For anus problems, one can start with her primary care doctor. The doctor can light up the anal area and get a good exam. Most problems can be resolved there. If not resolved, then anal skin problems can be seen by a dermatologist, and internal problems may need a gastroenterologist, protologist, colorectal surgeon, or general surgeon... depending on the type of problem.
