How to cure fissure in ano?

About

An anal fissure is a small cut or tears in the lining of the anus.

10% of fissures in women are anterior, while only 1% are anterior in men.[1]

● Requires medical diagnosis
● Can be acute or chronic
● Can happen to both men and women

A fissure in ano is also known as anal fissure. Fissures are usually caused by trauma to the inner lining of the anus. A hard, dry bowel movement is typically responsible, but loose stools and diarrhoea can also be the cause. Acute fissures have the appearance of a simple tear in the anus, whereas in chronic condition, swelling and scars might be present. Also, it may cause bleeding during bowel movement.

Age affected: between 0–2- often; between 3–18- rare; between 19–60- most often.

Symptoms

● A visible tear in the skin around the anus
● Sharp pain in the anal area during a bowel movement
● Burning or itching in the anal area
● Streaks of blood on stools or on toilet paper after wiping.
● A skin tag or a small lump of skin near the tear

Treatment

Self-Care: You can go for home remedies like a hip bath and dietary fiber. Dietary fiber helps to control blood sugar, soften stool, and maintain bowel health.

Medicines: Your doctor may prescribe you with some supplements that would help the tissue to repair and growth.

Specialists: You can connect with a specialist at mfine for a full treatment program.
