i have been suffering from anal burning, but it doesn't itch. i believed i had a vaginal yeast infection, so i treated that and thought the anal issue was doing better. however, it has returned. could this be hemmorhoids, fissure, or something else?

Anal burning ?'s: Hemorrhoids and fissures can certainly cause "anal burning", as bowel evacuation may irritate either, and/or split the sensitive mucosa of the rectum. Get a referral to a GI specialist for an exam to determine the cause.
