For anal fissure, can you use vaseline 100% pure petroleum jelly. Any issues. Would it help for fissure or cut.
Won't hurt: Vaseline may help protect an anal fissure from irritation but will not facilitate healing. The most important factor in healing an anal fisssure is decreasing size and straining with bowel movements. Daily still softeners and/or fiber supplementation are important. Nifedipine ointment and Nitroglycerin ointment may also be helpful. These are prescriptions you can discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Which is more effective and common treatment for internal hemorrhoids inflammation: canasa 1000 mg suppository or anusol hc 2.5% cream. Thanks.
Canasa/Anusol: To treat internal hemorrhoid, i would recommend Anusol Hc 2.5% cream instead of canasa. Canasa enema is used to treat inflammation on the left side of the colon in ulcerative colitis. Suggest high fiber diet with diet supplement (goal of 25-30 grams per day), adequate hydration, avoid straining, avoid soap at anal area. If all failed, hemorrhoidal banding or other modalities. ...Read more

What is a stronger topical antibiotic cream than those used in Neosporin for ulcerative wound care.
Wrong question: NO antibiotic is useful for wound care. Neosporin is useless. Studies of surgical wounds comparing antibiotics to vaseline or Aquaphor showed no benefit from bacitracin or neosporin. Use of topical antibiotics caused allergic reactions, impaired wound healing, and promoted emergence of resistant bacteria such as MRSA. Care of a wound is determined by its location and size and cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anal Fissure Tx: Initial treatment of anal fissures is directed at controlling constipation, softening stools, and reducing anal sphincter spasm. Warm water sitz baths for 10-20 minutes a few times each day are soothing and promote relaxation of the anal muscles, which can also help healing. Topical creams containing hydrocortisone, lidocaine, and nitroglycerine can also be helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can mupirocin calcium cream 2% be substituted for Bacitracin for skin irritations due to disposable undergarments?
Short term use: If you have minor skin irritation it is ok to use topical antimicrobials. However I would not recommend using it indefinitely as it may cause antibiotic resistance. It is important for you to avoid the undergarments that caused the irritation and prevent it from happening chronically. ...Read more
Simple healing: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation ( red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more
Not Neosporin!: Neosporin has not been found useful in treating anal fissures. A surprising cream that does seem to help heal anal fissures is Nitroglycerin! This medication is used for treating angina but it has also been found to relax the anal sphincter and also increase blood flow to the fissure which aids in healing. See your doctor or a proctologist for this - it is not an over the counter medication. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
