All the problem you experience now could be because of constipation. A regular stooling is important. Constipation leads to hard stool which further increases the pain during the stooling and develops friction against the anal mucosa causing fissures. Red spot could be a bleeding spot / clot.

I suggest better diet, exercise and water intake to prevent the recurrence of the problem.
