Causes of such anal rash include moisture(due to sweating or frequent washing), the abrasion caused by clothing, the pressure of sitting, chemical irritants like laundry soaps, colognes and scented toilet paper, certain food irritants, medicines like some antibiotics and laxatives, infections like STD’s and pinworms, anal abrasions and fissures and skin problems such as psoriasis, seborrhea and eczema.
Try an over-the-counter (OTC) cream or ointment containing hydrocortisone (Cortaid, Preparation H), but it is to be applied sparingly to the affected area. A protective ointment that contains zinc oxide (Desitin, Balmex) or calamine lotion may also help. If the symptoms persist then please consult a dermatologist.
I hope that helps. Take care and please do keep us posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
