You should realise that there are blood vessels in that region which can bleed if you use sharp objects which could kill you. Also you may have developed traumatic anal fissure. It is best you consult a Doctor and get looked at for this. You can sit in a shallow tub of warm water to get some relief for now. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink plenty of water and prevent constipation otherwise passing stool will be very difficult and more painful causing more damage. Apply lignocaine jelly in the region for relief around 2-4 times a day. Consult a Doctor immediately, but please stop this habit or you will endanger your health.

Thanks for posting your query.

You too are conscious that it is not a normal thing that you are doing.

It would be a sort of obsession.

It could be a OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

I suggest you to consult a psychiatrist for help initially.

Since this behavior is odd and your pain only comes down when you completely stop this act.

It would also cause anal steno sis in long term.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
