You should take precautions and follow healthy lifestyle. Avoid all junk food, bakery products, soda (cold drinks), and fried foods. Quit alcohol or tobacco (if you consume them) as they are injurious to health. Drink warm water 30 mins before food. Exercise everyday as that would help regularise the metabolism. Have more of fruits and vegetables. You may still require medications for some time. You can also try homeopathy which is safe and does not interfere with other medications and removes the tendency.

Dear lybrate-user. If this problem is troubling you too frequently than the permanent treatment is a small surgery ie lateral sphincterotomy which will decrease the anal tone. It will stop the recurrence as the main cause of recurrence is increased anal tone and constipation. You can contact me if you have more queries.

Only 8% of Adult Patients Healed on a Gluten-Free Die.

A 2009 study in The Journal of Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics looked at 465 Celiac Disease patients and found only 8% of adult patients reached ?histological normalization? after following a gluten-free diet for 16 months, meaning their gut tissue completely recovered to that of a healthy person. The authors stated:
?Complete normalization of duodenal lesions is exceptionally rare in adult coeliac patients despite adherence to GFD? [2]
These people followed a strict gluten-free diet for 16 months and most didn?t heal their gut. The success rate of the conventional Celiac Disease prescription isn?t working? and the research is exploding the truth.
Another 2010 study in the American Journal of Gastroenterology looked at 381 adults with biopsy-proven Celiac Disease. The authors found small intestine mucosal recovery occurred in only 34% of participants following a gluten-free diet for 2 years. They concluded:
?Mucosal recovery was absent in a substantial portion of adults with CD after treatment with a GFD.?[3]
The Conventional Merck Manual definition for diagnosing Celiac Disease provides that: ?The diagnosis is confirmed by an initial microscopic examination of a biopsy specimen revealing flattened villi of the small intestine and by a subsequent improvement in the lining after the person stops eating foods containing gluten.?
These studies clearly show that when a Celiac stops eating foods containing gluten, the intestinal lining isn?t healing. But that?s only scratching the surface of what?s going on?

You may be having fissure or papilla or pile so you need to be examined by a general surgeon and proctoscopy to be done to know what exactly it is, by the time keep your stool soft by taking plenty of fluids orally and high fibre diet.
