Brief Answer:
Fissure in Ano most likely

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query on HealthcareMagic,

I do understand your concern.

With such presentation in my clinic, I would first rule out anal fissure by doing a physical examination of the anal region only.

If confirmed, you may be advised conservative treatments like eating a high-fiber diet, drinking plenty of fluids and do regular exercise and if the pain is there you can take sitz bath 3 times a day.

Regarding medication, you can try prescription medication [Nitroglycerin rectal ointment].

Hope that helps
Feel free to ask further.
