There are several possibilities.

either she is in heat or has recently been mated.

Or she may have worms

Or she has some other irritant in that area, fleas and other skin mites like to gather in these areas.

My cat was doing the same and it was her anal glands--she needed to go to the vet to get them "emptied". Easy fix and she felt SO much better after.
