The sore is just inside the anus

It is worse when you strain? Do you have constipation?

I do not have constopation,I am regular on a daily basis,but it does sting when I relieve myself on a daily basis and then takes a few hours for the sting to go away, thankyou so far

it sounds like you have an anal fissue- which is a small tear and can cause stinging and pain
The treatment is anusol or preparation H
As well, eat a high fiber diet and you may want to take a stool softener like colace for good measure.
If this does not help you within the next 2 weeks, you need to see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment
I hope that this helped
