I used to have constipation issues last year, and recently, in the last two weeks, it gets fixed. But I think I have little wounds appearing, that is my assumption. I am taking soft stool from last week. While taking out stool, I feel a slight pain in that area. Is it serious? Please advice.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I can understand your concern for symptoms.
1) Never attempt to take out stool. Insted it is advisable to use stool softener or laxatives.
2) The habit of taking stool out and constipation can develop anal fissure which is small tear on inner wall of lower part of anal canal.
Constipation, manual removal of the stool.Investigations to be done:
Proctoscopy, rectal examination.Probable diagnosis:
Anal fissure.Treatment plan:
Stool softener or laxative,
Analgesics for anal pain,
Anesthetic medication ointment for local application.
