Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It's been there for a week or so. It's about little less then half a inch from the whole. But I irritate it every time I go number 2 to where it bleeds. It's is very sensitive and painful at times. And I don't know about diabetes

In my opinion you are suffering from anal fissure.

An anal fissure is a small tear in the thin, moist tissue (mucosa) that lines the anus. An anal fissure may occur when you pass hard or large stools during a bowel movement. Anal fissures typically cause pain and bleeding with bowel movements. You also may experience spasms in the ring of muscle at the end of your anus (anal sphincter).

Treatment

Anal fissures often heal within a few weeks if you take steps to keep your stool soft, such as increasing your intake of fiber and fluids. Fibre supplements like metamucil or laxative to prevent constipation.

Warm Sitz Bath with KMNo4 or betadine.

Soaking in warm water for 10 to 20 minutes several times a day, especially after bowel movements, can help relax the sphincter and promote healing.

Topical anesthetic creams such as lidocaine hydrochloride (Xylocaine) may be helpful for pain relief.
