may be there is excoriation of skin due to inflammation of the skin surrounding anal region
or proctitis...pinworm infection
maintain a proper healthy diet by adding more roughage like green leafy veg raddish carrot etc....
maintain personal hygiene....cleanse thoroughly around the anal region while u take bath....
drink more water....
consult surgeon....
