Thanks for your query.

I believe you have problem at your anus.

Such irritation occurs when there is break in the continuity of the mucous membrane in the anal canal. This happens due to forcing over stools due to constipation.

I suggest you to take a Laxative like Liquid paraffin which helps you to have easy stools and aids in healing of the erosion in the anal canal providing you relief from the symptoms you have.

Meanwhile do avoid spicy foods and tea as they aggravate the condition.

Hope I answered your query.

Please let me know if you have any other concerns.
