In addition to what pb4 has said, I have additional ideas. Sometimes when a person has diarrhea frequently or has pasty like stools, feces particles might "burn" the skin around the anal
opening. These superficial irritations can cause localized reactions or bumps. I agree your best bet is to have your GI to take a look.
