Brief Answer:
skin maceration, diarrhoea, stop wiping.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
you seem to have developed a maceration of the anal skin due to repeated loose stools. Ontop of it, wiping action (even with the softest tissue paper) will erode away the loosened superficial softemed skin thereby just increasing your problem.
I would suggest
1) take medicines for diarrhoea from a doctor.
2) stop the habit of using a tissue paper. Wash with water only or else use wet soft cloth to cleam yourself after motions. Use a dabbing action and not a wiping action to clean.
3) use calamine lotion before motions.
4) use antifungal dusting powder applied on the skin around the anus to absorb the wetness as well as to treat or prevent fungal infection.
5) it would be wise to do a stool test to find infection and take treatment accordingly.
6) meat and coffee are known to cause constipation. But here you can use these to reduce the liquidy component of your stools.

take care.
wish you good health.
