Your presentation does sound like a flared up infection, which infection? On that I cannot comment without an elaborate physical examination and other supportive laboratory investigations.

But the fact that the perianal region is also affected could be of concern. I would advise an urgent visit to the doctors office. In the meantime, please abstain from sexual intercourse, wipe after passing urine or having a bowel movement with extreme care and wear comfortable undergarments or avoid them completely.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
