Could be Strep: One of the things I get concerned about when I see redness in this area is a Strep infection. Usually a bacterial culture will help rule this in or out. Chafing/irritation, yeast infection and other causes are also possible.

It could also be hemorrhoids. They can be painful, sometimes bleed and can be exacerbated by poor bowel habits.
