Hello doctor,

I am a 35-year-old female. I have extremely painful bowel movements. Also, I experience severe pain and pressure while sitting, standing, lying, or walking. What can be the reason for my anal pain?

Kindly suggest.



Welcome to

I understand your concern. I have seen the attached pictures (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity). You are suffering from hemorrhoids that can be easily treated. I suggest you the following treatment for a month:

  • Syrup Looz 15 ml (Lactulose) twice daily for constipation.
  • Cream Anovate (Phenylephrine, Beclometasone, Lidocaine) to be applied to the affected area thrice daily for pain.
  • Tablet Daflon (Diosmin and Hesperidin) 1000 mg twice daily for a week, followed by 1000 mg once daily.
  • Sitz bath twice daily for 15 to 20 minutes.

As your condition is mild, it can be controlled with these medications. So there is nothing to worry about.

I hope this helps.

Kindly revert in case of further queries.

Thank you.
