Anal fissures are: most common, annoying painful condition , which will take long time to heal . Drink plenty of fluid , eat high fibre diet , and avoid constipation , use stool softeners most of the time will heal with out surgery. For rash you may need local care and Rx antibiotic cream see your doctor .

See your doctor: With anal fissures, it is likely you have seepage of stool or liquid from the rectum that is irritation the skin, It can be very hard to keep the area clean and dry when this starts to occur. Have you seen anyone about surgery for the fissure. I would recommend you do.

Fissures: You can use a topical agent for relief. Dietary change, especially adopting a high fiber diet and keeping stools soft is treatment for fissures.
