Hello,

How long and how frequently are you having the symptoms?

Is there any discharge of mucus or others?

Do you take any medicine?

Did you have any test?

Do you have any other symptom or previous illness?

Thank you.

Thank you for the information,

This is unlikely to have any physical or disease association as it is persisting for 10 years without any development of new symptoms.

This can be that you feel more clean in this way.

Some conditions like mucus discharge, anal itching can cause it.

But you are not having any.

Still you can get the area checked by a doctor.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
