Most common site is fissures in ano ,which very commonly seen .

Best conservative treatment is to avoid constipation by taking laxatives and avoiding constipating substances in diets

Sit`z bath daily in warm water mixed with potassium per-magnate after every defecation.

Post sit`z bath application of soothing antiseptic cream regularly .
