What is the cause of anal discharge?

I experienced an anus discharge that created a red circle from the constant moisture. Now I'm just experiencing a slight discharge, but also is alittle smelly. Also seem to be more gassy these days. Just happens with no warning. Plus I feel like I need to "go" but don't. Going on 3 Weeks.

Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, it is the infection proctitis could be the cause and for that I would suggest to confirm the diagnosis else for the local application you can use the Povidone Iodine ointment, symptoms could be suggestive of IBS too, I would advise you to have short course of Tab Metronidazole 400 mg twice in day for five days, hope this information helps.
