Big poop pain!

I was constipated and had a very large poop.
This was 6 hours ago and it still hurts. Is there anything I can do to help the pain?

  • You could try an over the counter hemmorhoid cream/ointment that contains a numbing agent. Something like nupercainal or a generic equivalent. With a large bowel movement, you may have created an anal tear, which will hurt for a day or two if it is a small one. In this case, get the type of ointment that can be used internally, like preparation H or a suppository type.

  • Eat lots of fiber. Drink lots of water.
