It's been a few years and every time I have a bowel movement & wipe with toilet paper, it is painful on my anus. Is there a remedy? It's very painful.

In brief: Inflammation

of the tissues in that area is probably the culprit.
Topical pads containing witch hazel may provide you with some relief, such as those made by Tucks. If it does not help see a gastroenterologist or colo-rectal surgeon for an anoscopy or sigmoidoscopy. I hope this helps. If you do have more questions or other concerns kindly contact with me on my Virtual Practice at : www.healthtap.com/dryetimyan
