Brief Answer: worm infestation Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. Crawling sensation in anal area can be due to worm infestation of intestine. Mainly pin worm. However worms don't cause redness on penis. It might be an allergy. I usually prescribe tablet albendazole for anal itch. You can apply ointment fluticasone on the penis tip. This will give relief from redness. Hope this help you. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
