Thanks for your query.

The symptoms are suggestive of Anal fissure.

Constipation is mainly responsible for this.

Take fibre XXXXXXX foods like fruits&leafy vegetables. Avoid oily foods. Drink lots of water.

If the problem doesnot improve you have to consult your physician.

Hope I have answered your query, I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
