Top Homeopathic Medicines For Pain During And After Passing Stool

Having mild pain during and after passing stool once in a while is normal. It may happen occasionally, for example from some changes in diet. But if it occurs regularly then it could be a medical reason behind it that needs to be looked out for and treated. It can arise from constipation when the stool is dry and hard. Another very important reason is anal fissure. It refers to a cut or crack in the skin of anus usually arising from passing hard, dry stool. Next common cause can be piles – swollen, dilated, inflamed veins around the anus and or in the lower rectum. It may also occur in case of proctitis which is inflammation of the lining of the rectum.

Another reason could be IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) which includes two inflammatory disorders of gastric tract i.e. ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. In ulcerative colitis, inflammation and ulcers appear in the lining of large intestine and rectum. In Crohn’s disease, any part of the gastrointestinal tract can get inflamed. It may also occur in case of anal fistula (an abnormal tract between anal canal and outside the skin around anus, perianal abscess (pus around anus) and from diarrhea means passing thin, watery stool. Besides, it may arise from food intolerances, sexually transmitted infection spread through anal sex (like chlamydia, syphilis); endometriosis when tissue that lines the uterus grows in areas other than uterus like ovaries, bladder, colon, rectum;  skin conditions (like eczema, psoriasis, anal warts) and anal/rectal cancer. Depending on the cause, pain during and after stool may be accompanied with other signs and symptoms like burning, itching, bleeding, swelling, lump, redness at anus and constipation or diarrhea.
