What causes anal pain?
Seems like subcuticular infection
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
The picture is quite clear and shows pustulous formation in a patch in the perianal skin - subcuticular infection thus causing soreness and pain.
There is also a skin tag that looks edematous.
I hope this answers your query.
Please feel free to ask for further queries.
As detailed below.
Thanks for following up,
Take a Sitz bath in a tub with warm water for soothing effect.
Take a stool softener or a laxative to keep stools soft for easy evacuation.
Take an anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen if it suits you.
Apply liquid povidone iodine locally.
For proper antibiotic, you need a valid prescription from your Doctor.
All these will help you to get a relief and possible cure.
Once the pain and swelling go away a proper per-digital examination and ano-proctoscopy should help to get any primary cause and get treated accordingly.
I hope this answer helps you.
Please give feedback and ask for relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
It will go away eventually, just follow the advice

Usually a few more days if everything is favorable.
Depends upon the circumstances, the way you take care and the way it responds to medications.
Should take a few days.
