General Surgeon 's  Response
You probably have an Anal Fissure caused by Constipation. It needs to heal properly.
You need the following:
A good laxative to get rid of all the pent up stools.
A mild regular laxative or stool softener to prevent further constipation
Twice daily sitz baths
An ointment to help you relieve pain and to help healing.
Plenty of fruits/ vegetables and water in your diet.
It takes a week to 10 days of starting treatment for symptoms to subside.
Please see a competent doctor for the medications as online prescriptions are dangerous.
