Brief Answer: Lactulose + warm sitz bath.. Detailed Answer: Hi, If its very hard and painful to pass stools, I would start you on stool softener such as Syp Lactulose 15-20ml at night along with XXXXXXX warm sitz bath. Both these measures can be used briefly as you plan an appointment with a surgeon / proctologist to rule out fissure/hemorrhoids. Please continue drinking sufficient water and fibre rich diet. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
