I was diagnosed w an anal fissure. No bleeding, & prolapsed hemorrhoid. Being treated now w nifedipine. Thinking its the prolapse. Burning so bad?

In brief: Fissures hurt.

Anal fissures hurt really bad.
They burn and take time to heal. Use the Nifedipine as directed by your doctor. They use it to relax the sphincter which when too tight causes skin breakdown.
