Can adding Iodized Salt to a SITZ bath HELP a chronic anal fissure HEAL that also has a Sentinel pile?

Yes

Anus
Adding salt to the bath will help to draw out the swelling in the area which will improve the pain. It will not speed up healing process but it may make you more comfortable for longer period of time.

Told I have an anal fissure. Told to do sitz bath. Am I supposed to use Epsom salts? I did earlier, now my rectum feels like it's turning inside out.

Comfort

Bathing
Usually I do not recommend Epsom salts. Just comfortably warm water is usually sufficient. Ask your own surgeon for instructions.

What is better for a sitz bath salt or epsom salts?

Hemorrhoids?

Sodium
Epsom salts are excellent for this purpose. Sitz bathes can be helpful. Sit in a bathtub with warm water. There needs to be enough water to submerge the anal area. Soak for about 15 minutes – several times a day. An alternative is placing ¼ cup of witch hazel & warm water in a basin. Soak for at least 15 minutes, at least twice a day.
