I have been diagnosed with a rectocele, but increasingly I'm experiencing more and more pain, burning and irritation after passing a stool. It's worrying me a lot as it's steadily getting worse.  It's not because the stool is too big or too firm, often its very loose, but it hurts and irritates the whole anal area. I've tried using various creams like Anusol, calendula, steroid cream etc, but with little effect. Sometimes it gets so inflamed that I can hardly sit down!

What could be causing this?  at times there is intense itching, too, but its the soreness that is worst of all

Does anyone know what this condition is, and what causes it? and how to treat it as naturally as possible, with effective results? thanks
