Hello,
One of the possibilities for your symptoms is external hemorrhoids. Symptoms of external hemorrhoids may include painful swelling or a hard lump around the anus which may itch. The other possibilities are of anal fissure and anal fistula.  Please consult a surgeon and get it evaluated.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
