Hello.The syrup that you take is a laxative to improve depositions and prevent worsening of anal fissure .Besides of laxative,the use of creams with lidocaine
and centella asiatica extract are effective in treating anal fissure. If these drugs do not improve your fissure,surgery is necessary but is possible conservative surgery
by laser.I wish you good health.

Sir, I have initially had gastic problem for which I used english medicines. After 1 month I have got severe constipation problem. After that I got perianal absis. I was operated for that and it is removed.but even after 1 month the wound did not completely heal. pin size are is still unhealed. So I shifted to ayurvedic who have confirmed that as a fistula. ( and told it is formed in 90%) of cases after absis surgery. they have placed some medical thread from the unhealed point to somwhere inside anus and gradualy tightened it for one month. after that it was cut completely and said it will now heal properly. After 1 month I again have seen pain just beside the cut. when I went they have told it is piles and said medicines will suffice. but after 3 weeks also I did not find improvement. So I went to some english doctor again. He has examined and told it is anal fissure. Could it be that the cut that is made by ayurvedic doctors made doctor to belive that it is a fissue? I was given shield ointment, bizobid,gatifloxacin & ornidazole tablets. He said if it doesnt cure with medicins I have to get operated again. but gradually I felt better after using these medicines. Is it temporary? I dont want to get operated these many times. please sugest me a permanent solution. I am still 25 and has not even got married. I feel bad to get this sought of problems in this age. please suggest me the best cure for these.

Hi Dr. About 6 months ago, I noticed a white, sticky, fluffy discharge from my anus when I go to the toilet in the morning. The discharge is usually attached to my stool and the amount varies. It is not painful at all. I visited my local Health 4 Men clinic. I was treated for STI’s with an antibiotic. I was also treated for a possible anal fissure with suppositories. However, the discharge is still present in my stool. Lately, my anus is often itchy and the past week the tissue around the anus was tender and red. I treated it with an anti-fungal cream and it has now cleared up. For the past 2 weeks, I have been experiencing some slight abdominal pain (just below the left rib cage). This said, I was wondering whether I don’t perhaps have a Candida infection?
