Hi
You can try a local anaesthetic gel like lignocaine for local application before passing stools.Increase fibre/greens in your diet.Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol.
Also seitz bath several times a day should reduce the swelling.

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.
