I have itchy and wrinkled anus (pics)

Warning! pictures of my anus incoming...

TL/DR: itchy anus. no sex. What are those wrinkles?

29 year old male. Almost no sexual activity, always protected. never had anal sex.

I've had, for the past 2 years, an itchy anus. I noticed it happens like an hour before I have to poop, until a while after I do it. A few months after this started, I went to a regular doctor and asked; she said there was nothing wrong. But, even though I had never seen my anus before this, I'm pretty sure those wrinkles are not good. Also It makes wiping harder and painful. Theres not pain nor bleeding when I poop or wipe, but the problem it that sometimes the itching is so bad I have to scratch (with toilet paper), and I have scratched to the point of hurting myself, which lead to unbearable itchiness. Can someone tell me if this is normal? is this an anal fissure in the inside? outside? or what?

It is not permanent, sometimes it doesn't happen for a week.

Regarding alimentation, I don't eat much fiber, but I tried for some days to see if it fixed the issue (with no luck).

If I'm forgetting to tell some necessary data, please tell me and I will update. Thank you.image

    it doesn't sound fissure symptoms. I suppose you are using wipes and not toilet paper. i have used coconut oil or calmoseptine for minor irritations with good results. if that doesnt help, I would see a colorectal or a gastroenterologist specialist.

      Thank you for your reply.

      I am using regular toilet paper and bidet. by wipes do you mean those for babies? I'll give them a try. BUT MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS: is this some serious illness? or just irritation? what kind of doctor should I check this with? proctologist? urologist? gastroenterologist? I live in small town, so I would have to set an appointment with a doctor in some other city.

      They have now wipes (like the baby ones but flushable) to use instead of regular toilet paper, which can be rough for that sensitive area. Bidet use is great! I wished we had them in USA.

      PROCTOLOGIST /COLORECTAL ( which seems to be the new description for proctologist, at least here in UsA). A gastroenterologist would also be able to make recommendations.
