Detailed Answer:
H! Welcome to HealthcareMagic! Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible.

First of all, it is sad to know what you had been experiencing lately. Based on the history and images you have shared, on superficial glance it doesn't appear to have any gross lesion like a polyp, or fistula or any finding like haemorrhoids but a hint of blood streak at one side may be due to skin cut or small superficial layers involvement due to strain during defecation.

For further reassurance it may be needed to be reviewed by surgeon for per rectal examination and if needed proctoscopy. Meanwhile using laxatives to avoid pain with defecation and local anti inflammatory gels or glycerine suppositories nay be helpful. Sitz bath can be continued twice daily. Oral analgesics like can also be used for pain relief.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Hope this has answered your query, if you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Regards.
