Welcome to

Burning while defecation could be due to anal fissure. The anal fissure is a break or a crack in the mucosal lining of the anal canal. You better see a gastroenterologist and get a PR examination and sigmoidoscopy test done. Treatment consists of taking stool softeners like Pegfibre 4 tsp at bed time with a glass of water. Ointment Diltigesic locally thrice a day. Hot sitz bath for 15 to 20 minutes twice a day.
