Specializes in General Surgery

See a Surgeon: Non-surgical treatment includes warm water soaks 2- 3 times a day, increasing fiber intake, drink lots of water, and taking stool softeners or laxatives. Witch hazel (tucks (witch hazel) pads) can help. Some relief in a day or two usually. It may take several weeks for the fissure to heal completely. Sometimes fissures heal without treatment. May require surgery.
