Hi M

A condition called Pruritus Ani (and in your case probably anal fissure) is likely to be the cause - Your best option regarding treatment would be to discuss this with your doctor - a mild prescription steroid cream may, for example, bring relief.

All the best.

hi, the problem might rise from waring G-string underwear and also other things that you need to take care on what you eat. eat vegies and fruits rather food rich in starch.
