Burning feeling during bowel movement. Prolonged pain, itching, difficulty in walking. Solution?

For the last 3 days there had been burning feeling during a bm. There is prolonged pain after and its extremely uncomfortable to walk, like there is something stuck right at the edge of my butt. There has been no blood but itching frequemtley. I have been using witch hazel compresses and medicated wipes. Ive never gone to the doctor before for this but it hadn t been this painful before.

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

It may be a anal fissure for which I will like to advise:
1. Soften your stool with lots of fibres(may be psyllium fibres) and liquid in your diet. If this does not make your stool soft then add a laxative also.
2.Don't strain while defecation
3.Use local ointment containing diltizem and apply it on anal verge before and after defecation
4. Sitz bath

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
