Anal fissure: Burning pain during defecation often anal fissure, tear in lining. Treat like hemorrhoids. Sitz baths, wet wipes, avoid constipation, spicy foods, soothing lotion, suppositories. Check with your doc, gi, or colorectal surgeon re: details, especially if bleeding, fever.

See doc: Agree with dr. Arthur heller's answer that this might be anal fissure. If you see your doc or a colorectal surgeon, s/he might additionally prescribe Nifedipine and/ or nitroglycerine ointment. Hope you get better soon as anal fissures are painful!
