Most anorectal diseases will show symptoms of anal pain, but there are still differences in the manifestations of anal pain in different diseases. Based on these different manifestations, we can initially determine what the disease is, and then treat it symptomatically.
1. Anal tear-like pain after defecation + blood in stool: anal fissure
Symptoms: A typical anal fissure is an unbearable pain, which usually occurs during or after the bowel movement, such as knife cutting or fire. It may last for tens of minutes in the mild cases, and may last from several hours to ten hours in the severe cases, and even last until the next bowel movement. In addition to pain, anal fissures are often accompanied by blood in the stool, bloody red, dripping, or stained toilet paper.
Treatment: At present, the main treatment methods for anal fissure are drug treatment and surgical treatment. For drug treatment, I recommend external application of nitroglycerin ointment, or use of compound carrageenate suppositories, Taining suppositories and other suppositories. In severe cases, surgery can also be used.

Symptoms: Hemorrhoids have no pain symptoms for most of the time. Anal pain occurs during the onset. This pain is the heaviest at onset and lasts for 2-3 days, and then slowly relieves. Different types of hemorrhoids have different characteristics of pain and masses.
Thrombotic external hemorrhoids: The swelling and pain are obvious, the local masses are hard, and sometimes the appearance is blue-purple.
Inflammatory external hemorrhoids: localized lumps, hard, smooth, shiny, and tender.
Internal hemorrhoids and mixed hemorrhoids incarceration: In the past, hemorrhoids prolapse every time after defecation, and incarceration means that the prolapse cannot be repaid. The lump is large, painful, and sometimes accompanied by bleeding.
Treatment: Different hemorrhoids have different symptoms and different treatment methods. Edema external hemorrhoids and thrombotic external hemorrhoids are generally treated by oral administration of Maizhiling or external application of Ruyi Jinhuang ointment. If the condition is serious, dissection resection can be selected for surgical treatment.
