In brief: Sure it's proctitis?
Anal/rectal pain & swelling may be an indication of underlying disease--fissure, proctitis, fistula, abscess.
Hemorrhoids may be exacerbated by increased pelvic congestion. Rectal prolapse is a outward bulging. Anal trauma of any kind may cause mechanical injury. Evaluation is recommended to distinguish serious vs less concerning reasons for symptoms before attempting treatment & missing diagnosis.
