No pain at all, no meds, didnt poop for a day and a half but thats cuz i didnt eat cuz my stomach was too upset from the hangover & i havent actually looked at or touched my anus at all
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe there may be a possibility of Hemorrhoids.
You can try OTC cream or suppository containing hydrocortisone and use pads containing witch hazel or a topical numbing agent.
Use a sitz bath with warm water.
Keep yourself hydrated with plenty of fluids and eat fiber-rich diet and take Metamucil.
Avoid alcohol, spicy food, fat rich food.
Avoid straining during Bowel movement.
Avoid long periods of sitting.
Even sitting too long, particularly on the toilet, can increase the pressure on the veins in the anus.
Do regular exercises.

Your symptoms will resolve if your stools will be soft and regular again.

As constipation is a main contributing factor.

I hope this helps.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
