Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 5 months ago.

the most common cause of discomfort under the skin in the rectal area is swelling and inflammation of a hemorrhoid vein

constipation, hard stool, straining when you have bowel movements all can cause inflammation of a hemorrhoid vein in your rectal area.
