welcome to HealthcareMagic
The anal skin becoming pink is not normal and since it has developed itching and spreading then it is a sort of skin infection either fungal or bacterial.Please apply ointment containing antifungal/antibacterial and you should feel better.If things don't improve then consult a doctor for examination and treatment.
