Rectal Pain Relief
There are four common causes of rectal pain. Anal fissures, hemorrhoids, anal spasms, and Levator ani syndrome. Pain from conditions that cause rectal pain can be treated by condition. For example, pain from anal fissures can be treated at home by sitting in a tub of very warm water for 20 minutes twice a day, applying hydrocortisone cream to the anus, eating a high fiber diet, and taking stool softeners to make bowel movements less painful.
