Severe pain in the anus during bowel movements. Need help

Hello, I am a 22 year old female. For the last 5 days I have been experiencing sharp, intense pains in my anus . Especially when I need to go and poo. The pain is so intense, at times I have screamed. The pain is also that intense that I try and hold off going to the toilet. After I have been to the toilet my anus is still sore especially when I sit down on hard seats. Please help

hi there, the symptoms you have described are suggestive of anal fissures and the treatment for it is first to apply lignocain jelly to the anus 15 mins before going to the loo, secondly you need to take mild laxative to relieve you of constipation as that is the most common cause of anal fissures. You need to include lots of fruits and fibrous vegetables in your diet to avoid being contipated. Drink plenty of fluids adn avoid refined foods. You could try taking Sitz bath or warm bath in a tub to relieve you of the pain and for the fissure to heal. Proper high fiber diet along with plenty of water or fluid and regular bowel movements will help prevent it in future.
