Diet and exercise: Hemorrhoids are enlarged veins in the rectal area. Anusol only for relief of itching and pain, not a cure for hemorrhoids. Eating a balanced diet, rich in fiber, together with plenty of fluids, softens the stool and increases its bulk, which will help you avoid the straining that can cause hemorrhoids or worsen symptoms from existing hemorrhoids. In addition, exercise can help with bowel movement. ...Read more

Have tried Preperation H, Anusol, sudocrem nothing works - I need pain relief from anal fissure ASAP! In so much pain! My doc was rubbish?

GI or Procto Dr.: You may need a GI or Procto Dr. The anal fissure, depending on the size of it, needs to heal. Pain meds may be needed and it is recommended to have stools that are regular and at the least NOT constipated to allow the area to heal without stretching as much. A Colo-rectal dr (or proctologist) and/or GI may be better than the rubbish dr. You saw, as the anal fissures are literally a Pain in the A. ...Read more
