SEE PHYSICIAN: THE ANAL AREA IS SUPER SENSITIVE, AND EASY TO GET IRRITATED. IT COULD BE HUMIDITY IF THE AREA STAYING WET MORE OFTEN IT WILL LEAD TO SOME KIND OF YEAST OR FUNGUS INFECTION, NEED TO KEEP IT DRY AND APPLY TOPICAL OINTMENT FOR THAT PURPOSE THAT YOU COULD BUY FROM OVER THE COUNTER. AREA COULD GET ITCHY AND SCRATCHING COULD BRAKE THE SKIN AND CREATE ALL KIND OF PROBLEM INCLUDING INFECTION,
