Constipation, severe pain in anus, unable to pass stools. Causes and treatment?

Hi, Im 12 years old. Today when I got home from school, i had to take a dump in the bathroom. For some reason, it wouldnt come out and i experienced severe pain in by butt. I told my stepdad, and he said i wasnt drinking enough water. I just held the poop back in my butt and continued on with my day. Now it still hurts and i still have to poop wondering if i was constipated. Can you please help me?

Thank you for the query.

Such symptoms most likely are caused by anal fissure. This condition is caused by rectal mucosa tear(some kind of wound). That is why you feel pain while the stool irritates this wound.
To have it treated you should first of all make your stool soft. To do that, you should increase fiber rich products and mineral water intake. Physical activity should be also increased. Sitz baths with Quercus Cortex should also help. TO ease the pain you can use hemorrhoids suppositories with lignocaine.

Hope this will help.
