Exclamation Pain after bowel movement

Hi, i am a 15 year old male. A few weeks ago i noticed after id have a bowel movement id start to get a minor pain near my rectum. It does not bleed or anything like i have read hemoriods do, but it does cause discomfort. After looking at it i saw it is a pea-sized purple lump. The pain usually lasts for a few hours then subsides. I really do not wish to go see a doctor, but what should i do to releave the pain with household items. And also how can i prevent it from happening every time i have bowel movement?

p.s. Also, the pain varies, from very minor to medium.

Re: Pain after bowel movement

It does sounds like a small hemorroid.
Not all hemorroids bleed, some can get swollen and hurt bad, others can just happily sit there not bothering you.
As long as you are not straining on the toilet to poo the hemorroid should ease off pain wise.
Also you can get some creams or suppositories that can heal it.
Drinking plenty of water and eating high fibre foods will make your stools softer which will help the irritation.
If it bothers you it is probably worth a visit to the doctor.
Take care and hope this info. helps
