Dermatologist 's  Response

Definitely you should visit dermatologist.

It seems that you are having pruritus ani.

There are many causes.

In your case haemorrhoids may be the cause.

Thorough examination will be done and if needed he will advise for blood test to rule out other diseases.

Antihistaminics , mild steroid with antibacterial cream may be prescribed.

If there is hamorrhoides, he will refer to surgeon.

Ok ..

I hope you got my answer.
