Severe to moderate pain in the rectum during and after bowel movements is an indication of anal fissure. If it is accompanied by bright red stool and an itching sensation around the anus, it is more likely to be fissure than anything else. Fissure is usually treated with sits bath and enhanced intake of fibrous food. If that does not heal the problem, the doctor may go for a surgery. However, surgical intervention of fissures is not always a permanent solution. For permanent solution, patients are now turning to homeopathy. Yes, homeopathy can address the problem at its root and gift you a permanent cure.

What Need to Know About Fissure?

● The problem mostly precipitates due to inflammation and dryness of the mucosal end of the anorectal area.
● Straining during bowel movements and passing hard stools strain the anal mucosa. That is likely to result in fissure.
● People suffering from chronic diarrhoea are also likely to suffer from this problem.
● People suffering from some kind of inflammation of the anal area due to diseases like Crohn's disease or some kind of inflammatory bowel disease may also suffer from fissure.
● The patient may feel a lump in the area surrounding the anus.
● He or she may also experience spasms at the end of the rectum.
● Even infants may suffer from this problem.
● Many women suffer from fissure after childbirth.

Homeopathic Treatment of Fissure

● Homeopathy is known to address diseases to their roots.
● In case of fissure, homeopathic medicine can address the problem by preventing and treating dryness and inflammation of the palpable mucosal area around the anus. If this area is moist, it can stretch better in response to straining during bowel movements and thereby prevent tearing.
● Since constipation is one of the main causes of fissure, homeopathic doctors may prescribe medicines for preventing constipation too.
● However, homeopathic medicine is not a one-size-fits-all remedy. The medicine depends on the constitution of body. The doctor may try to judge body constitution of the patient by asking him questions about sleep pattern, food habit, emotional state, working schedule, etc. The doctor needs to take all these into consideration to prescribe the most appropriate medicine.
● A homoeopathic doctor first gets a conventional diagnosis. If fissure is confirmed in the diagnosis, the doctor may launch an all out attack on the problem so that the problem can be nipped in the bud.
