Anal fissures: Anal fissures are a tear, that scars and reopens with the passage of stool. They are often associated with hemorrhoids and difficult to heal. Local medications and control of constipation help. Okay to check in with your doc. If your constipation is under control, you may benefit from a surgical consult and procedure. Be well.
