Hello there,

Thanks for writing in.

You might be right. With your symptoms, these are the possible causes :
1. Anal Fissures
3.Perianal abscess
4.Partial incontinence to liquid stools

Please visit your surgeon who will be able to come to a right diagnosis after a physical examination.

However, constipation is the root cause of your symptoms. I shall suggest you some measures to avoid constipation.

1. Have fibre XXXXXXX food like oats as a porridge.
2. Have plenty of fresh fruits (like banana, papaya) and vegetables.
3. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
4. Soak a handful of raisins in a glass of clean drinking water and keep it overnight. Drink the raisin soaked water and eat the raisins first thing in the morning.
5. Avoid white rice, pasta and maida. Have whole grain foods like brown rice,whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta.
6. As an alternative to point no.4, Try drinking 3 glasses of water on an empty stomach as soon as you wake up. I know this is not possible on the first go, so start gradually. Start by drinking one glass of water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning for two - three days. Then gradually increase it to 2 glasses in the morning and thereafter 3 glasses. Within 15-30 minutes, you will have the urge to pass motion and most likely you will have a good bowel movement.
7.Avoid XXXXXXX fried, fatty food , chocolates, tea, coffee, alcohol, smoking, fast food and junk food.
8.If you do need to have a laxative, you can have Isabgol :Mix 2 teaspoons of isabgol (psyllium husk)in a glass of clean drinking water and drink immediately at night.

Hope I have answered your question. Kindly get back to me in case if you have further queries.

In case you don't have any further queries,kindly accept my answer. Any reviews are welcome.

Have a nice day.

Dr.Divya Kuttikrishnan
