Likely benign: Either hemorrhoids or a fissure are likely, with other possibilities less likely. Try to avoid constipation/ hard stools. In case persistent see your PCP for an exam.

Stool softener: Anal fissure is a likely explanation. You could help the healing process by keeping stool soft. You may take a fiber laxative like Metamucil and drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless. you may try to increase your intake of fiber foods.
