Brief Answer:
a gastroenterologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
It sounds like you are having an allergic reaction to some foods. Seeing a gastroenterologist and getting some colon testing done would be the best way to get an answer to the problem.
Anal itching can be from allergies, infection or inflammation and getting a colonoscopy if you have not already had one would be a good idea.
I wish you the best and let me know if you have any other questions.
Regards,
Dr. Robinson
