It eased the pain a little but I am extremely scared. What do I do, please??:

you probably have an anal fissure.
avoid trauma to the area until healed. You can do sitz baths with epson salts for pain relief.
Use stool softeners or laxatives in the meantime to ease your pain during bowel movements, until your fissure heals.
