In brief: Part of Treatment

Anal fissures are usually related to passing hard constipated stool or other trauma to the anal canal.
Keeping your stools soft with fiber (metamucil) is only part of the treatment. Drink plenty of water as well. May need medicated creams to help as well, see your doctor to know what you need to do.
