Welcome to healthcaremagic forum

This symptoms is seen in ANAL FISSURE. Its a sort of cut on the anus, due to hard stool/straning/dry stool etc.

It heals by itself usually, unless if its old and patient has constipation all the time.

Applying calendula ointment after stool and night will heal.

Sitting in a tub of hot water , for 10 min, before passing stool helps a lot.

Avoiding constipation & straining is a must, always.

If this complaint is recurrent, you can see a homeopath . Other treatment is surgery.
