Child has itching and pain in buttocks. Red bumps near anus

My 2 year old son, who has not been circumsized, complains of itching or hurting around his bottom area, I can t see anything there, except a couple of tiny red bumps right around his anus . He is waking up at night crying, and during the day he keeps pulling at his diaper. We do have a dog that he plays with all the time, and I m hoping he hasn t picked up anything from her. I haven t seen anything in his poop, but he hasn t gone poop yesterday, and not yet today either. He started complaining day before yesterday that I noticed.

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I think you son has worms.
Perianal itching along with anal pain with the history of a pet nearby indicates a worm infestation.
Deworm him and apply lactocalamine lotion to the local area thrice daily.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
