Proctologist: Possibilities include perianal dermatitis, lichen sclerosus, pinworms, overexuberant anal cleansing after bowel movement, reaction to underwear, toilet tissue or soap. A proctologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. In the meantime you could apply a cortisone type ointment.
