Thank you for the information.
By what you say I feel that this could be a case of hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the rectum. They can cause itching, bleeding, and pain or without pain. Hemorrhoids are very common. In some cases, you can see or feel hemorrhoids around the outside of the rectum. In other cases, you cannot see them because they are hidden inside the rectum.
Hemorrhoids do not always cause symptoms. But when they do, symptoms can include:

  • Itching of the skin around the anus
  • Bleeding – Bleeding is usually painless. You might see bright red blood after using the toilet.
  • Pain – Only if a blood clot forms inside a hemorrhoid, this can cause pain. Otherwise it is painless. It can also cause a lump that you might be able to feel.

The most important thing you can do is to keep from getting constipated. You should have a bowel movement at least a few times a week. When you have a bowel movement, you also should not have to push too much. Plus, your bowel movements should not be too hard.
Being constipated and having hard bowel movements can make hemorrhoids worse.
●Eat lots of fruits (especially papaya), vegetables, and other foods with fiber. Fiber helps to increase bowel movements.Fiber supplements - These come in the form of powders, wafers, or pills. They include Psullium seed (sample brand names: Metamucil, Konsyl), Methylcellulose (sample brand name: Citrucel), Polycarbophil (sample brand name: FiberCon), and whaet dextrin (sample brand name: Benefiber).
●Take medicines called "stool softeners" such as Docusate sodium (sample brand names: Colace, Dulcolax). These medicines increase the number of bowel movements you have. They are safe to take and they can prevent problems later.
Some people feel better if they soak their buttocks in 2 or 3 inches of warm water. You can do this up to 2 to 3 times a day for 10 to 15 minutes. Do not add soap, bubble bath, or anything to the water.
Pain relief - Pramoxine rectal foam, ointment, or wipes (sample brand names: Proctofoam, Pramox).
Medicines to shrink hemorrhoids - Phenylephrine ointment or suppository (sample brand names: Preparation H, Rectacaine).
Numbing ointments -
  • Benzocaine rectal ointment (sample brand name: Americaine)
  • Dibucaine rectal ointment (sample brand name: Nupercainal)
  • Lidocaine rectal cream (sample brand name: RectiCare)

How long should I use medications..?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 13 days ago.

Stool softeners can be used for 2 - 6 weeks depending on the need.

Those topical ointments are only to be used if needed 3 times a day.
