Doctor:Hi, please proceed with your query
User:My mother-in-law is having pain while passing stools.
Doctor:sorry about that
User:Few months back, we took her to a doctor and she said she has mild fissures in her butt crack. Said surgery was optional but did not insisst
Doctor:I see
Doctor:May be it has worsened now
User:Now, she is having burning sensation while going to stool
User:Ya, what do you advice madam?
Doctor:In my view, surgery is the definite treatment
Doctor:She can try using laxative orally and Anovate cream locally for a week or so
Doctor:until the time, the symptoms subside
Doctor:I usually suggest my patients Syrup Cremaffin plus 10ml at bed time
Doctor:Apply Anovate ointment locally around the anus half an hour before passing stools
Doctor:This will reduce the pain while passing stools
Doctor:She must reduce intake of spicy food
Doctor:drink plenty of water
User:Oh ok.. she did some self medication at a local store, we will discontinue those tabs and purchase Syrup Cremaffin plus and Anovate ointment
Doctor:Take high fiber in her diet to get rid of the fissures completely
Doctor:For time being, you can do that
Doctor:but for definite management, she needs to consult a general surgeon for surgery
User:Sure, madam. She is next to me and I have showed her what you just said. She is happy.
