In brief: Address both problem

You need to address both problems.
You need to soften your stool by taking in plently of water (8-10 glasses per day) and fiber (get a fiber supplement). This will soften your stool and alow it to pass more easily. You need to deal with the fissure by doing the above, using mineral oil to help the stool to pass more easily. Use topicals to ease the pain - Prep-H, witch hazel (Tucks Pads)...
