In brief: Medications

There are really no effective over-the-counter medications for anal fissures.
Proctologists will recommend prescription topical creams that contain either Nitroglycerin or Diltiazem to relax the sphincter muscles. Some even use Botox injections. The last resort is an operation called a lateral internal sphincterotomy (lis).
