Embarrassed, it sounds like you have haemorrhoids and a superficial fungal infection, but I can’t say for sure without examining you first. The best would be to see your doctor and have it sorted out because it might be something more serious. If you’re interested in something I wrote about itchy bottoms, you can e-mail me at Good luck.
