Brief Answer: Fissure in ano Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query It looks like you are suffering from fissure in ano which is nothing but a small crack in the anus. Here are my suggestions to you 1. Use a stool softener like Syp Lactulose, 15 ml at night, softer the stool the easier and less painful it is to pass stools 2. Lignocaine jelly when applied over the burning area brings in a lot of relief. Apply it thrice daily 3. Sitz bath should be taken once a day, it helps in healing. Here you will have to buy a wide mouthed bucket, fill it up in warm water and sit in it for about 15 min. You could also medicate it with Dettol or Savlon 4. Avoid fat rich food, spicy food and junk food ( pizza, burgers, fries, etc) until you are better. Food should be rich in fibre for example green leaft vegetables, fruits, salad, etc Also please approach a general surgeon soon for a local examination and treatment I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me I wish you good health and a speedy recovery Regards

Is my vaginal area gonna be alright? I m worried.

I am a long distance and racer cyclist and I have been suffering from a rectal bleeding and burning since June 5th and used Prep-H with no help. Finally I saw a Proctologist/Surgeon on August 24th and he suggested Colonoscopy and also said that I have a posterior midline fissure and prescribed Nifedipine 0.3% & Lidocaine compounded cream.

October 7th procedure was done, colonoscopy showed no polyps, sigmoid spasm ( Dr. was not worried about the spasm ), 3 large internal hemorrhoid banding and a Botox for the fissure.

I had a follow up 11 days after the procedure, and the Dr. said that most likely the hemorrhoids already fallen off and the fissure is healing ok, but I am still in pain and blood on tissue and some on the stool ( bright blood ) after 2 weeks post procedure, my bowel movement is very painful and after about 2 hours from BM severe burning starts for about 2 to 3 hours. I am eating fruits, veggies and drink a lot of water, and off the saddle for 3 months per doctor.

My question would be, is this normal? how long does it take for the fissure to heal? How do you increase the blood flow in the anal area? I am reading online that Nitroglycerin ointment helps a lot.
