I have anal fissure. When I consulted doctor 4 years back he had given me an ointment which has cone like shape with 4 holes in it. I used it and it healed within 1 week. I forgot the name of ointment and I no longer have access to that doctor. Could anyone please help me with name of it?

Hello there are many ointments with multiple names for fissure treatment. However the basic mechanism is same. Do following measures for 2 weeks. Take lots of fluids and veggies Avoid red meat and spices. Do sits baths in warm water thrice a day. Apply oint cremagel or anobliss thrice a day Take softovac granules with a glass of water bedtime. Hope it solves your problem Regards.

Piles are treated according to their grades. You may start Arshakutharasa tabs, 2 tabs 2-3 times a day. Pilex ointment for local application. Hot sitz bath. Better if you chat with me privately on Lybrate.

Is anobliss cream containing 1.5% lidocaine and 0.3% nifedipine? Is it safe for long term use of 4 months.

Yes you can use it easily for months together. But why you need so long. If your fissure dsnt heal by one month regular treatment that means it has become chronic. Then no fun continuing the treatment as surgery is recommended then. However thr is no harm using it locally for long time unless you are a cardiac patient. Regards.

How Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help You Treat Anal Fissure?

A tear in the anal canal is called anal fissure. When the skin breaks, it can cause pain and extreme discomfort. Some amount of bleeding during defecation may also be experienced. When the anal aperture is over-strained, it results in a crack leading to fissure. In women, delivery trauma can lead to anal fissure. Ulcer in the anal canal or sexually transmitted diseases too can cause the anal fissure. In children, it is commonly due to injury by passing hard stool. Fissure is usually seen at the anal verge. This being a highly sensitive area; any scratch or tear in this area gives excruciating pain, burning, itching, irritation like symptoms. There may be spasm in the anal region (which is a protective mechanism) and the patients are scared of passing stools. Sometimes patient avoids eating food so as to avoid going to toilet. Usually the pain subsides in an hour or so. However in some conditions where there is underlying inflammation and infection; the pain may persist whole day. Recurrent anal fissure which has not been treated properly give rise to an extra skin growth known as sentinel tag. 

Ayurvedic remedies: In the patient suffering from Anal fissure; it is very important to regulate the bowel habits properly. Some mild laxatives may be used to soften the stool. Hot sitz bath and use of some soothing ointments, coconut oil, ghee etc. are helpful as they avoid the irritation. Ayurveda can completely cure the people suffering from anal fissures. The treatment duration differs from one individual to another. This is also based on the severity of the disease. In acute anal fissure; the allopathic doctors usually recommend surgery. The commonest adverse effect of surgery is incontinence where the patient is unable to hold stools. However acute anal fissure can be treated without surgery very effectively using Ayurvedic Kshar Karma. In this therapy; certain medicines are applied in the anal fissure so as to promote the healing. The sittings are repeated after weekly intervals and fissure heals in 3-4 sittings. In this way; this is highly specific, very effective and convenient method of treating anal fissure. In chronic anal fissure with associated Sentinel tag; Ksharsutra ligation is used to remove the tag followed by Kshar Karma sittings. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Yogurt, buttermilk, cheese etc are good sources of probiotics. Inorder to avoid consipation you should include food rich in fiber. Whole grains, green leafy vegetables, fruits like Papaya, apples, bananas etc should be consumed. Avoid greasy food because it can be hard to digest.

You can go for a simple procedure called sphincterotomy. It will relax your tight sphincter muscle and you will not have fissure problem again. This surgery can also be done with laser.
