You didn't give enough information. If you think there might be a problem, you can call you vet and ask if it's normal. Good Luck!

It's possible that if your dog had a heavy worm load to pass, or had a parasite infection in the colon area, that it could irritate your dog's anus. It's also possible that your dog is licking his anus, and therefore irritating it, in response to the feeling of passing worms. It may also be unrelated to the worming.
As long as your dog seems otherwise healthy, give it a day or two, and if it doesn't resolve then call your vet. However, if you notice any other symptoms, you should probably contact your vet to avoid a larger problem.
If the swelling is severe, you should also see a vet immediately, although from your description it sounds fairly minor.
