No Butts About This!: First,I'd call the lout who did this & ask him(or her) about it.But that aside. it's hard to say without looking at it(which"he or she"may want to do).If it's not bleeding or leaking anything weird, a warm bath or soak & meticulous local cleanliness help.A stool softener helps(easier to pass the exit).A topical anesthetic will help (some are non-Rx).But if it bleeds or nothing helps,it's doc time!
