Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to an allergic reaction to the antibiotics. I suggest using antihistamines such as Cetirizine 10 mg to treat the itching. I also suggest soaking in warm water for 15 min to relieve the anal fissure. I recommend using Preparation H cream for local application.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
