Hello doctor,

I have got chronic anal fissure. I have started Anobliss cream and sitz bath. Sometimes I still get blood in my stools and also get a sharp pain in my anal region. I got this problem a few months back and it resolved by itself, now again I got it and this time it is very painful. It appeared last month. When I saw my doctor he said it is a chronic anal fissure. What is the best thing I could do? Should I opt for laser surgery? Please help me.



Welcome to

Thank you for your query.

I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing chronic anal fissures. I suggest you to follow a few instructions mentioned below:

  1. Continue to use the Anobliss cream as prescribed by your doctor. This cream contains lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic that can help to relieve pain and discomfort in the affected area.
  2. Continue to take sitz baths as directed by your doctor. Sitz baths involve sitting in warm water for about 15 minutes at a time, several times a day. This can help to reduce inflammation and promote healing.
  3. Be sure to follow a high-fiber diet, drink plenty of fluids, and avoid straining during bowel movements. This can help to keep your stools soft and reduce the risk of further injury to the anal area.
  4. Consider taking over-the-counter pain relievers such as tablet Ibuprofen or tablet Acetaminophen to help manage pain.

Kindly consult a specialist, talk to them, and take medications with their consent.

It is important to keep in mind that anal fissures can take time to heal, and it is important to be patient and diligent in your efforts to manage the symptoms and promote healing.

I hope this has helped you.

Thank you.
