You feel pain when you use the toilet, and always hard. You need to take enough water, fruits and vegetables in your diet to soften your stool. You need a lot of fibres in your diet.

For the ulcer like symptom as if there is a wound in your anus, that may be making you to go to toilet for fear of pains after use of toilet, in turn it makes your stool get harder beause you do not go to toilet when you ought to. It is likely that you have anal fissure, which is responsible for the pains and in turn constipation is there steaks of blood too in the stool.

What you can do is take Liquid Paraffin 15 ml thrice daily, that will help soften your stool. Apply topical Lignocaine local anastesia on the anus to relieve pain. Do warm sitz bath. Put plenty of salt in warm water, add a disinfectant containing Chlorhexidine to it and sit on it. Do it thrice everyday, and after using the toilet. It will help to sooth the discomfort and relax the nerves around anus.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
