Hi anal fissures can be really troublesome Constipation is one the major causes. Definitive treatment to get rid of fissure is laser treatment for fissure. for further details Conservative treatment includes doing sitz bath ie sitting in warm water ,eating high fibre diet and laxatives .all these will provide temporary relief Definitive treatment is with laser surgery.

How to differentiate between Anal fissure and Fistula. What is the test done to determine this.

FMAS, MS
General Surgeon, Gandhinagar
Respected lybrate-user hi fissure is cut over anal opening which can be seen obviously with a mirror. Usually pain, burning when passing stool due to friction. Fistula is hole or opening around anal opening (not exactly over opening as fissure) from which sticky fluid or pus is drained continuously or intermittently. Only examination is sufficient for fissure no test. Yes fistula can be confirmed in details with dye study known as fistulogram. Dear thanks regards.

Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

It is not a good idea of Increasing intake of junk foods and fatty foods to gain weight. You should be eating calorie dense yet nutritious food. Your calorie intake should come from foods that are healthy for you. The weight gaining diet should include high protein foods, high carbohydrate foods and healthy fats. Include these in your diet. Breakfast: Banana and milk or banana shake or smoothie, whole-grain toast, fruits, nuts. Eat more fruit and drink less juice. Do not take milk mixed with ghee . It is not healthy. Lunch: Roti or chapatti or wholegrain bread, rice, green vegetables, paneer, dal, chole recipe, black-eyed beans (lobia), rajma, whole wheat pudding (dalia), etc Dinner: Similar to lunch In-between meals:: fruit, sandwich, yogurt (curd), milk, cheese, salad Avoid deep fried snacks like samosa (samosa recipe), pakodas, bhujia etc. Avoid fast foods

Dear, It appears that you have anal fissure and it is due to constipation which is not a disease but life style problem. Treat constipation: increase fluid intake, take high fiber and high residue diei, take emolient laxative like creamaffin plus 1 tsf at night along with isabgol powder 3-4 tsf in 300 ml of water at night, increase physical activity in form of regular walking, games or exercises. Apply zincal ointment in side anus before passing stools and also avoid taking painkillers. If brning is severe then take sitz' bath: sitting in tub full of warm water for 15-20 minutes
