Hello

Thank you for trusting HCM

Dear if fissure not responding to medical therapy,
Chronic anal fissures,midline fissures complicated by underlying fistula,fissures associated with increased sphincter tone these are the indications for the surgery.

If your symptoms not improved with medicine better to consult your surgeon he will decide and treat you accordingly.

I am suffering from acute anal fissure and was prescribed Cremaffin plus , 4 teaspoons daily . But I misread the prescription of my surgeon and have been taking 4 tablespoons of Cremaffin plus. Was it harmful ? I have been taking it for the past one week. I don t have any pain during bowel movements now , I think the fissure is healing but I am scared that I have been taking too much laxative. My stools are soft and I do not have to apply any pressure at all. I have to go to the toilet once in the morning...some days twice. Please advice if the extra dose has harmed me. Also can I switch to Isabgul now? I am afraid that if I stop taking Cremaffin ,the fissures will return.

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?
