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.

Can anal bleaching treat a thick black ring around my anus?

Anal bleaching: More than likely not. If you use bleaching agents around the anus you may cause damage to the nerve endings and develop incontinence or numbness in the area.

Duh!!!: You don't need to know because it will not help you care for yourself. Only if you are writing a research paper. For chronic pain begin a self-care with a wellness program of vits, magnesium glycinate, sleep hygiene, exercise, self massage, chiropractor, yoga, heat, epsom tub soaking, stretching all are needed. In my practice I use acupuncture and myofascial tissue release.
