Thanks for posting your query

The information is suggestive of infection in the large bowel

You probably have collitis

It would be good if you avoid fermented and contaminated fluids
Take seven day treatment of Ofloxacin & Ornidazole
Add a Probiotic to it

Another possibilty if you are constipated and have passed hard stool, is probably a small fissure or eroded piles

For this you need to control constipation with fiber diet, plenty of fluids orally and a laxative

Take sitz bath twice a day if there is pain

Hope this helps
