Thank you for the input.
The severe pain can be due to benign spasm of the anorectal muscles.
It can be due to fissure. Worm can cause it.
There can be an infection or inflammation too.
You can apply Preparation H.
This would relieve the pain.
You can make him sit in warm water tub.
This will relax muscle.
Motrin or Tylenol can be given too.
If the pain persists, you should take him to pediatrician or hospital.
I hope this information will be helpful.
