User avatar hi jamesbond000,

You need to see a general surgeon to examine your rectal area. Prolonged and severe constipation may result in piles but more often injures the inner surface of rectum causing a wound. The wound is slow to heal as each passing dry hard stool stretches it.

Until you see the doc, you need to eat lots of vegetables and salad to soften up your stool. A good addition would be to eat 'ispaghola husk'. check out your local pharmacy as it is an over the counter agent and no prescription is required.

You really need to see a doc, however.
