Anal fissure: I'm unclear as to why your anal fissure won't heal. I recommend consulting a proctologist to make sure of the diagnosis as well as the cause of this persistent anal problem. You will obtain expert treatment and follow-up of anorectal problems. A colorectal surgeon is a second choice, but in my experience a proctologist will spend more time on your problem as this is the area of his/her expertise
