Burning Sensation In Anus

A split or tear in the anus after trauma can cause sharp pain and a burning sensation around the anus. This condition usually happens if the patient is suffering from chronic anal fissures. Hemorrhoids can also cause a burning sensation while passing stools. The other reasons are constipation, inflammatory bowel disease, and diarrhea. Taking a sitz bath might reduce this burning sensation. In addition, the affected person can apply a topical lidocaine gel in the anal region to avoid this discomfort.
