These steps: First, see a doctor to make sure this is just a fissure. If it is an anal fissure, it may resolve by adding fiber to diet (and drinking plenty of water), sitz bath (sitting in warm water for 10 min 2 times a day), and topical ointments for pain control. If not improved, the next step is using some special ointments that will help the muscle of the anus relax (and so will let the fissure heal).

Be aware of HPV: Anal warts (Anal Condyloma) are caused by a virus called HPV (Human Papillomavirus) which is usually transmitted by sexual contact. Although wearing condom decreases the risk of transfer of HPV, it does NOT completely protect against HPV. Please check the CDC website: http://www.cdc.gov/hpv/prevention.html.

Maybe: Crohn's disease can involve the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus. In the mouth, it can cause ulcers, fissures, plaques, erythema and other lesions. In addition, malnutrition or deficiency of micronutrients (minerals, vitamins, etc) can cause lesions in the mouth (fissures, inflammation, etc). Both these conditions should be evaluated by your MD.

Thank you, Dr. Milanchi, for your comments to my rectal cancer surveillance question. Do you do anorectal manometry in your practice?
