Trouble in bowl movement. Extra skin around anus. Is this cause?

I have had trouble pooping for several months now. It feels like ripping when i poop and sometimes there is blood when i wipe and in the bowl. I have tried adding fiber and eating veggies help soften my poop but the problem still exists. There is also what looks like extra skin around my anus and and what i think is the reason for the tenderness when i wipe also
