Burning anus when passing stool

I experience burning around my anus when I pass a stool and it itches afterwards. What is causing this and how can I treat it?

Dear Bob
If the skin is red or cracked, you could try something like Fissan paste on the area - it could be a dermatitis or a small anal tear. Avoid spicy food, and take a stool softner if you tend to have hard stools ( like Duphalac)
