Brief Answer:
Infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Do you have any other symptoms apart from this?
Anal itch? Unable to digest food? Excessive gas forming? Hard stools? Blood in the stools?
Do you have reflux disease / coeliac disease / Irritable bowel syndrome IBS?
The information given is too short to arrive at any particular possibility.
Infection and local anal skin problems come to my mind initially.
To treat this you need to get examined by general surgeon intitially for per rectal exam or anoscopy initially.
