Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. You may be seeing a problem with the anal glands. Sometimes these get too full or impacted and blow a hole through the skin. Sometimes the dog does damage by scooting on the ground or licking the area.

I would advise that you have your Vet take a look in case antibiotics are needed.
