Fissure : The Pain
An acute anal fissure is a tear in the skin of the anus, which can cause pain and bleeding during bowel movements. Treatment options include increasing fiber intake and fluid intake to soften stools, avoiding straining during bowel movements, and using over-the-counter creams or ointments to soothe pain and inflammation. In some cases, a topical muscle relaxant may also be prescribed to help heal the fissure. In severe cases, surgery may be required to alleviate the severe pain of the fissure. It is important to consult a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
