Hi

Thanks for posting your query

Perianal itching can be due to worm infestation and/or a small fissure
If you are constipated manage the same with lot of fiber and plenty of fluids in the diet

Antifungal creams are Ok but it is stress which is the culprit when you have itching in genitals, if you are able to manage stress levels the itching will reduce

Regarding the pea shaped swelling in perianal region it seems you have developed a small thrombosed external piles

You need to control constipation and take sitz bath twice a day
If the bleeding continues you should see a surgeon in your area and get a proctoscopy done to rule out XXXXXXX piles

Hope this helps
