Hello!

Thank you for the query.

The most probable reason of your symptoms is anal fissure. This condition is caused by rectal mucosa tearing due to hard stool or hard pushing on stool. It result with some kind of wound giving pain when passing stool. Some fresh blood can also appear. This condition is associated with constipations.
To get it treated you should:
- avoid constipations (increase fiber XXXXXXX products and mineral water intake)
- do not push hard on stool
- have stiz baths with Quercus Cortex
- use prescription-free suppositories for hemorrhoids
- use Nitroglycerin gel and Xylocaine Gel

Such treated fissure should go away in a week or so.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

Hello!

Yes it should heal by itself, just follow advised steps. If this wont go away in a week or two, that`s the point you should visit your doctor. You should watch for blood in stool. As long as it is on the surface of it, its fine. However if you will notice any blood mixed with stool, you should also visit your doctor.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

It appears to have a " skin flap" or a whitish colored skin on it... It that normal for a fissure? Also, would it help to apply neosporin or anything on it? Thanks

Answered by Dr. Grzegorz Stanko 6 hours later
Hello!

Such skin flap is possible. You need to know that whole thing is inside. What you see outside is just a peace of it. Neosporin is not advisable. See what I have advised you before (Nitroglycerin Gel and Xylocaine Gel).

Hope this will help.
Regards.

Hi, My 3 and a half year old daughter has suffered from constipation since about 5 weeks of age, she has been hospitilised in the last week and was given klean-prep for 19 hours to clean her out, She has been witholding her stools for the past 2 months due to anal fissures and in the last 2 weeks is holding her urine as well, she has had 3 urinary infections in the last 6 months, she has been on benefiber for the past year and her stools a soft but large due to the holding on.

My daughter has autism and global development delay and is non verbal. Is this urine holding part and parcel with the bowel problems?

i was diagnoised with an anal fissure last week. I have started a cream. I hadve had an undiagnoised right sided perhiprheal neropaty and pelvic fl dysfunction. In april I had a very hard movement and it felt as if all was falling out of my rectum and vaginia. I developed hemoroids, in April. I was given a ducolax suppository for constipation which burned my insides and created more rectal tisssue. I had to strain ito initiate and finish a b.m. the tissue became untoucable and worsened. now before I have a b.m. all tissue goses back into my rectum and comes out with the movement. I have severe pain. the first colorectal surgeon i saw performed two anoscopes which created more apin and diagnoised me with grade 3 hemroids. from august till just recently i maintined my diet and took warm baths the hemoriods did not reduce. my b.m. are 5 days old. i get severe bloating and recently abdominal pain. my crps was limited to the right side of my body but my rectum and stomach were not effected as far as pain until april. is it typical for the tissue to go in and out in this manner before a b.m.
