Brief Answer: Haemorrhoids Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query From the description you have given it looks like you are having haemorrhoids but the local itching and rash might be a seperate issue. There might be a local infection which is causing the discomfort. Here are my suggestions 1. Keep the peri anal region clean . 2. Avoid itching over the region 3. Lignocaine jelly applied over the are will give some relief 4. Please approach a general surgeon for examination and to put you on appropriate antibiotic or anti fugal ointments Since you do not have constipation, bleeding in stools or change in the form of stools no emergency intervention of haemorrhoids is necessary as of now I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me I wish you good health and a speedy recovery Regards
