Fissure in ano: It sounds as if you may have an anal fissure. This can be incredibly painful and could also be infected. You should apply warm compresses or sit in hot water 4-6 times a day, dry off thoroughly and apply a soothing ointment after each soak. Though you can take Tylenol, (acetaminophen) you will most likely need to see a doctor to get more help for the muscle spasm that is causing the severe pain. ...Read more

If your history is straightforward, we may be able to help you on a Virtual Consult. The Q/A part of HealthTap doesn't diagnose or treat patients.
