welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
It seems to be a fungal infection .Take oral anti fungal medicine with topical anti fungal creams .Use it for a month depending upon what your dermatologist prescribes you.You would get to see the response in initial 2 weeks.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
The anal skin becoming pink is not normal and since it has developed itching and spreading then it is a sort of skin infection either fungal or bacterial.Please apply ointment containing antifungal/antibacterial and you should feel better.If things don't improve then consult a doctor for examination and treatment.
