1 doctor agrees

In brief: Watch for a day or 2

Miralax (polyethylene glycol) will also help a fissure by treating constipation.
Sitting in a hot water bath for ten minutes three times a day will also help. If you are having any additional symptoms or not getting better in am couple of days call your doctor.
