Pain In The Anal Canal During And After Bowel Movements Accompanied By Blood Spots?
I am Maria 19 years old. I was always sick during and after defecating, to be precise in the anal canal and I thought it was not hemorrhoid because there were no lumps and no blood was dripping. It felt like it was just a wound but when I wiped it with a tissue there was a spot of blood but it wasn’t bad enough to drip so I thought it was a symptom of an anal fissure.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the anal canal during and after a bowel movement (BAB) accompanied by blood spots can indeed indicate anal fissures. This condition occurs when the wall of your anus is torn. The causes can vary, ranging from constipation, excessive straining during bowel movements, chronic diarrhea, inflammation of the anus and rectum area (for example in people with Crohn's disease or other colitis), and vaginal delivery. In addition, other factors, such as anal cancer to infection (for example HIV, Tuberculosis, Syphilis, Herpes) also increase the risk of anal fissure.
However, it is also possible that your complaint will arise due to other reasons, for example:
Hemorrhoids (hemorrhoids) --- not all hemorrhoids will appear with a lump in the anus Fistula ani (an abnormal tube that connects the anus with other organs or outer skin) Infection around the anus (for example an abscess, or other infections, including sexually transmitted infections) Anal cancer (malignant tumor), etc. Therefore, considering that it is not clear exactly what triggered your complaint, we urge you to consult a doctor immediately. Usually, if an anal fissure is really suspected, the doctor will refer you to a specialist surgeon for further evaluation and treatment. You can also do supporting tests, such as anuscopy, colonoscopy, etc., which the doctor will do to determine the best treatment.
In the meantime, what you need to do is:
Prevent constipation, namely by actively moving, exercising regularly, not sitting too much, not holding back the urge to defecate (even though it feels painful), drinking more, and eating more vegetables and fruits. Avoid taking drugs carelessly (including laxatives). relieves pain, you can soak in warm water or take paracetamol. Always keep your anus and pubic area clean. Don't have anal sex. Hope it helps.
