A member asked:

Suggestions for fissures. foods, creams etc?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Anal fissures: Most important is prevention by eating a high fiber diet that helps produce easy to evacuate stools. Good hygiene can help with comfort. Clean with baby wipes or by using water in a shower or douche. OTC meds that can help include hydrocortisone ointment (don't use the cream as it can sting) on the external area and shoved up the anal canal a bit. If not improving well in a few days, see your doc.
