Brief Answer: Detailed answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Good to hear that you are feeling better with regards to your Grade A esophagitis. Continue taking Nexpro till you get complete relief. The burning sensation in the anus occurs due to many different conditions. Some of the common conditions include a fissure , hemorrhoids which occur if you are constipated. So if you are constipated, take high fiber diet and drink lot of fluids and if needed take fiber supplements. Do sitz bath (sit in a wide mouthed tub with warm water so that the anal part is touching it) for 10-15 minutes three times a day. You can also apply anesthetic gel . Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
