Hi doctor,

I have recurrent anal fissures. When I consulted a doctor, he said the blood loss is very less. But, another doctor advised me to check for CBC. Is this a serious issue?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Even if the blood loss is less, it can lead to the development of anemia. Hence, CBC is essential (complete blood count).
  • If you have anemia, then you will require iron therapy for that.
  • To prevent fissure, you need to have a soft diet with lots of salad and roughage so that stools will not be hard. Also, take a good amount of fluids.
  • Take medicines advised by your doctor and do sitz bath regularly.
