Could and infection be passing from one area to another?

I just turned 30 a few months ago and have been having issues with my butt. It started out with a hemorrhoid and then 2 itchy white spots appeared on the right outer area of my anus. Everything went back to normal but then a month later an itchy spot appeared on the other side, this one turned red but then went away. Now that that one is gone and there are two on the other side. They didn’t hurt before I washed with a cloth, and even then it doesn’t really hurt at all, they’re just itchy. But it seems like whatever it is is being passed back and forth. I am prone to vaginal yeast infections, that area hasn’t changed but I’m wondering if maybe it’s just making its way back there now for some reason. Also, it seems like it’s been happening a lot since quarantine, I’ve been sitting A LOT, and haven’t been showering every day like before. Anything you can tell me would be a help, thanks.

Fungal infections/yeast infections can actually spread.  I've had issues on other parts of my body with fungal infections that itch like the devil - mostly under my breasts, and mostly when it's warm and humid.  You might check out some OTC products designed to clear up fungal infections.  Sometimes it's a matter of trial and error, because they contain different active ingredients.  Going to a doctor to get it diagnosed is, of course, the best option, but I understand it can be difficult to get appointments right now for non-urgent matters.
