Anal fissure is due to passing of hard stool. You should avoid constipation. You should get your proctoscopy done under local anesthesia to confirm the diagnosis. Meanwhile you can apply Nitroglycerine ointment for local application.

I have a small mole in near anus, I am afraid that it is fistula, please assist me, I have been suffering from the beginning of the last year.

Probably you have a skin tag. Called sentinel piles. If it is so no need to worry. Fistula will wet your undergarments with nasty smell.

Yoga Poses To Get Rid Of Gas

Apanasana (knees pulled to chest)

Process
Lie flat on your back and relax your body. Place your hands on the knees and inhale. Pull the knees on the chest while exhaling. Rock the knees side to side for improved stretch. Inhale and exhale 5-10 times and then release the knees. Repeat thrice.


Setu bandha Sarvangasana (bridge pose)

Process

Lie on your back and bend knees. Place your arms down and flatten your feet on the floor. Incline your hips which will stretch your chest. You can press one hip and pause the pose for 5 breaths. Switch it to the other side. Place your hands below the body as you incline the back. You could also clasp the hands together and intertwine the fingers.

Paschimottanasana (seated dorward bend pose)


Process

Sit on the floor and stretch your legs in front. Keep your back straight and slowly hinge ahead to touch your feet. This will lift your hips and lower the torso. Pause for 5-10 breaths.

While your try to reach your feet, try to stretch as much as possible. If you do not reach your feet due to lower flexibility, you could keep practising it regularly for a healthier body.

Marjaryasana and bitilasana (cat and cow)

Process

Place your hand and knees on the floor so that your back is flat up. Inhale and make sure that your abs are engaged. Exhale by dropping your head. Round up the spine which gets you to the cat pose. While you inhale, arch the back and hold your head and hips up. This is the cow pose.

Repeat both the poses alternatively. While you inhale, you could be on the cow pose and while your exhale you should be the cat pose. Repeat 5-10 times.

Balasana (child's pose)

Process

Sit on your knees but spread the legs so that there is adequate gap in-between. Now lean forward and stretch arms in front. Make sure your back is straight and your forehead on the floor.

If you want the pose to be a little easier you keep a pillow to rest your head on it.

Staying in constant practice with exercise and yoga is one the best ways to maintain a healthier you. Our body is the only thing we live in and health is our first priority. Take some time out for regular yoga, so that the next time you eat a little extra you're not worried about the repercussions. Our body becomes more flexible with regular yoga and it also improves our mental health.
