hello preeti,

welcome to hcm

thanks for the query

generally fissures take 2 to 4 weeks to heal

so for one month you should be extra cautious

have sitz bath 10 mins 4to 5 times per day. it will relieve pain and also accelerate healing of it

simultaneously take 5 to 10 gm of psyllium husk at bed time .

have more water. apply that cream also.if you still not having smooth stools you can have cremaffin plus 10 to 15 ml at bed time by 9 o clock in night

it will make the stool more soft. you may have some loose stools. so you should be take leave from office for that day.if you are having pain now then take a pain killer medication for today

do exercise .not to be sedentary

in morning take bit of warm water

take care
