In brief: Anal Fissures

Best treatment is eliminating the cause which is usually trauma secondary to hard bowel movements.
If so try increasing the fiber in your diet and if stools are still hard take an over the counter stool softner as directed. If you are still having problems see your physician who may recommend other therapies such as nitroglycerine or nifedepine ointment, Botox or in some cases surgery.
