An anal fissure is a tear in the anal mucosa. If you’ve ever noticed a spot or two of bright red blood on your toilet tissue after having an uncomfortable bowel movement, or small external skin tag at the perianal area, you have likely experienced an anal fissure.

An anal fissure can lead to burning, itching, stinging, or sharp pain may lead to perspiration or even vertigo during bowel movements. The pain can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few hours. In severe cases, the pain can cause a spasm of muscles that surround the anal canal, which can cause the pain to intensify.

Fortunately, most anal fissures heal rapidly on their own. When a fissure doesn’t heal within a few weeks, it’s usually because one or more root causes continue to aggravate the fissure.

Following are few ways that can help you cure anal fissures quickly.

1.Increase your daily fiber intake & try to avoid spicy food

One of the major causes of an anal fissure is constipation.  When we have to strain to make a bowel movement we are putting excessive force on the anus. This combination of a large, hard stool that has to be forced out of the body can easily cause an anal fissure. So increase fiber in diet like salad, fruits, green leafy vegetables & avoid Spicy food.

2.Take a warm or hot water sitz bath for 10 – 15 minutes at least three times a day.

Immersing your anal part in warm or hot water can help to relax your internal anal sphincter, which will allow better blood flow to the area. Relieve the pain & help in healing.

3.If your anal sphincter is dry or you have an existing fissure, you can use ointments like anovate, shield, or smooth etc,& or take bed time laxative like isabgol.
