What is the treatment for anal fissure?

Q: I am 30 years old and suffering from anal fissure for the last two months. It stays okay for some time, but then surfaces again. I am consulting a doctor, but he told me that it will take some time to cure. Please suggest a line of treatment.

A:In people suffering from anal fissure, it is important that the stool consistency remains soft and constipation is avoided. First, your doctor should confirm the diagnosis by a rectal examination. If it is confirmed, several measures can be taken:

  1. Use stool softeners
  2. Local application of ointments for symptom relief such as Lignocaine ointment, Proctosedyl ointment, etc.
  3. Increase dietary fibre content
  4. Drink plenty of water
  5. Use sitz bath
If symptoms persist, then you should be re-examined by your surgeon.
