Is it bad to scratch my rear if no bathroom nearby?

In brief: No

Scratching can be so comforting although most would try to hide a little so scratching of an intimate place is not a public event.
If you have a persistent itch, especially with some bleeding, you might need to have your doctor evaluate this.
