Hello,

Thank you for your question.

It may be possible that use you a medication or preparation for your hemorrhoids that you were allergic to and that has caused a rash. Also you may have had an irritation caused by stool. This can also represent an infection such as a fungus around the anal area. If this is the case you would need to have your doctor look at it and obtain a culture and prescribe appropriate local or systemic treatment. I would also suggest you use TUCKS which are medicated pads soaked in Witch Hazel which will take away some of the irritation and itching.

It is no longer itchy. It is a big flat regular skin red color look around my rectum..          anything that will alleviate that?

It still sounds like an irritation. Try cortisone cream or ointment 1% along with the TUCKS. If it an inflammation, it will improve. Can obtain without prescription.
