A burning sensation and wetness in the anal region is probably due to local inflammation. Inflammation could be due to a local infection, eczema, or both.

Prostatitis is a more serious problem and manifests with painful urination and ejaculation, pain between the testicles and anus, urethral discharge, erectile dysfunction, etc.

You may want to consult a urologist about your problem.
