Doc couldn't figure it out. Put me on flagyl. Thought it helped at first but no. Doctor wanted to try another surgery by grafting tissue from an adjoining area-I balked-at least for now-if i'm not healing in that area why open an adjoining wound?
So I bought a jar of Manuka honey from Manuka Health the is the strength, there are two or three different ways -and some controversy-of measuring it and lots of fake stuff out there, but that's another discussion. Although the actual insertion did trigger some mild bleeding, the pain started to subside almost immediately. I stopped a week ago because of the holidays and some traveling. I still feel a little occasional mild irritation down there so am not completley healed yet but have had no bleeding and no weeping and feel better than I have in about a year.
I'm going back to the doc next week and may do another course of this between now and then. Now to be fair, I have also been dosing with some high count probiotics so that may be a factor as well.
But as I said, everyone is different but I think the failure to heal on my part was due to some bacterial or fungal imbalance that the honey is helping with. I've also been eating it-tastes great.
After using the Manuka honey and oil remedy as mentioned by Kate and a few others my fissure seems to have cleared up completely after 3 years and no medical improvement. However I still can feel spasms quite regularly- which the doctor can see - and was wondering if anyone could suggest something to help stop the spasms so I can be free of this worry of tearing again?
Hi everyone. Could you please tell me whoever used the Manuka honey and felt better, how are you doing now?
Did the fissure come back after the treatment? Hello, I've been reading all the posts, and would like to try this remedy, but I don't get how you insert the liquid into the body. Right now the combination of hemorrhoids and fissure is so painful I can't imagine getting anything into the rectum.
What do people use? I wanted to share an experience I've had and hopefully it will help others. I was taking a "powdered" supplement in a packet which I would dissolve in liquid. I believe it was EmergenC I can't remember the flavor and while I was using it I had anal bleeding and fissures.
I soon stopped taking the powder and the bleeding stopped as well, followed by the fissures healing. I suspected the bleeding may have been caused by the powder but I wasn't sure. Then time went by and I forgot about the connection. I took some packets with me on a trip abroad and after using less than a couple packets, the fissures were back. Finally, the connection was solid in my body and mind. I don't ever use those crystallized supplements now because I believe either the crystallization catalyst is still there and causes crystals to re-form, or they are never completely dissolved.
At any rate, I believe they are harmful to skin tissue. I would use a small amount of zinc oxide on a Q-tip to clean and speed up healing of the fissures-gently press the head of the Q-tip to the inside.
Recently I discovered an outstanding coconut bar made by Oskri-Coconut Bar Original. I love this two-ingredient bar coconut and a small amount of rice syrup. Eating at least one a day greatly improves the texture of my stools which tend to be dry or hard.
The crystallized supplement sounds like it was Vitamin C and that vitamin acts like a blood thinner, making it easier to bleed heavy after a rough bowel movement. E is a blood thinner- Flaxseed- Olive Oil-Lecithin-and others.
You really need to see if you are taking any vitamin or supplement that thins the blood your cholesterol test will look great but you may need to drop the amount down if you see a lot of blood in the toilet bowl. Aspirin- alone or in something like EXCEDRIN! Things we may not think about as we take them, but can be blood thinners. The blood we see passed with a fissure or even a hemorrhoid can be frightening and even more so if you are on a thinner for blood clots or the above mentioned examples.
Stopping taking the Emergen-C supplement would show improvement because of the drop in vitamin C levels. I had anal fissures BIG TIME! extremely painful. The doctor gave me something on prescription that was Vaseline based. The pharmacist had to order the powder to mix into it. I thought it was extremely weird to put this heart drug on my fissures, but it worked within days after months of suffering.
The quantity was just 0.
I had an anal fissure after I had my son 8 years ago. It was super painful. It healed after a few weeks but the pain did not go away. Had another fissure along the way with continued pain. I went to many doctors over the next year and a half or so and they made me feel like I was crazy to continue to complain of pain when they said it was healed.
They had very little to offer but the regular mantra, take fiber, take baths, etc. I had the surgery where they partially cut the internal sphincter muscle to help relieve the spasm. I still had pain.
I finally found a colorectal dr. that had the newest treatments. He also prescribed the cardazam 0. The prescription cream has to be made by a compounding pharmacy.
Medications for Treating Anal Fissures Nitrate ointment: Your doctor may prescribe one of these to help raise blood flow to the anal canal and sphincter, which helps fissures get better faster Ratanhia: It is another Homeopathic medicine to treat anal fissures.

It was like a miracle. If your dr. does not or will not prescribe it or hasn't heard of it go to another dr. I honestly think that if I had seen this dr. earlier,I would not have needed the surgery. Hi thanks all above for the great discussion and tips. I will be heading out to get some manuka honey today. Just wanted to add a couple of things I have done in the past.
Number one and even more useful for hemorrhoids is an anti-inflammatory medication called Diclofenac. Not ideal to be on long term but reduces or entirely ends the pain within a couple of hours and can be a godsend whilst trying to get the fiber and healing process sorted. Number two - this is weird but again very helpful with hemorrhoids; when you are on the toilet and about to poop, put your hands on top of your thighs right by your hips and push your shoulders up and also try to suck your stomach up as much as you can.
This pulls the anal canal upwards a bit like pulling a crumpled tube straight and can allow the stools to almost fall out without straining in the slightest.
Well thanks and good luck. gives a whole new meaning to 'Pain in the Ass' aye! I've found this article to provide welcome information to several of my co-workers 5 had already had surgeries. They thank you for that. I was also wanting to find out the date that the article was set out by newsletter.
I had nostril lesions at the time and am trying to attach a length of time of these nuisances. Please, DO NOT put basil oil anywhere near your anus. Although basil oil has many healing properties as an essential oil, it is NOT recommended for topical use. It is CERTAINLY not suitable for an open wound! The skin around the anus is thin and very sensitive. A 'tingling' sensation will be indeed felt, but will likely result in an infection or skin rash.
As for the honey, save it for your toast! where did you get the idea it can't be topically applied?! Do not agree at all. I have written another comment already in reply to Kate's post which gives my detailed experiences. I am hoping that any of these work for me as i have had an anal fissure for 6 months now after the doctor cut out a very hard protruding polyp that popped out of my anus while studying.
He did not stitch or cauterize it when he was done. Currently all the doctors i see about my problem just say its a hem. I have so much rectal bleeding each time i have a bowel movement and the reason is not how hard or soft my stool is. The reason is simply because the anus has to expand each time.
Imagine your anus is a balloon with a tear in it. When the balloon is expanded with water, the slit opens up wider and water blood gushes out. When you are done pooping, the anus gets smaller and the wound trys to start to heal just like the slit in the balloon shrinks after all of the water is emptied from it and the slit is much smaller or not even noticeable But!
if every day you are streching the wound open again, it can not heal! And its worse if you are rubbing poop on the wound each time. While i really want to believe that all of these "creams" will essentially work and i hope to try them, i have only used Vaseline and it didnt stop the bleedingI am a firm believer that physical intervention is much more effective.
I am not proposing surgery however. I am proposing that somthing like a balloon or tampon in the shape of an egg beater but much smaller help keep the anus open. Think about it, if the anus is stretched open then the blood can clot when the wound is at largest and exposed to air, then the wound can actually clot and heal. The problem with this method is that your anus is hard wired to want to push out and it would be hard to keep something like that in fora longer period.
I have had this problem for the last two years. It got really bad a two months ago. I seen the colon rectal surgeon. She gave me a prescription to put inside that lets your blood flow better to the area so it can heal.
If this doesn't work she is going to give me a botox injection. She said surgery is the last resort because it can cause anal leakage. I have fybromyalgia and have had a problem with constipation for years as well. I think they have both contributed to my problem. I have been suffering with annul fissure and 2 hemorrhoids for over a year.
I just had the Botox injection about one month ago and along with the Nifedipine. I also sit on the toilet in a warm "sitz bath" tub device once or twice a day for 15 minutes so this minimizes water usage and you can relax and read a good book. I also use Konsyl fiber about 3 times a day to soften my stools.
All became treat anal fissures you were visited
My situation was an anal fissure that kept reopening on every bowel movement. Even after a year of following my doctor's advice of high fibre diet for soft stools and muscle relaxant cream, it still split on most bowel movements. The solution that worked for me was to progressively gently massage the inside of my anal ring during my daily shower no soapworking towards comfortably being able to insert two fingers similar to stool size just past the inner ring, and rotating them.
Over three weeks, this seems to have rebuilt up my lost natural elasticity in the scar tissue on my anal ring.
This same technique had previously worked on a long term recurring split lip I'd had many years ago. I wish doctors in the UK had better means of sharing patient solutions, like on this forum. I have a feeling GP's will be replaced by an app at this rate.
I have been dealing with a anal fissure for 2 years, tried several Otc meds. Have had some relief but slight constipation always makes it re-occur. Lately I have been using organic Aloe Vera gel in its purest form possible, and am feeling very little pain. It's been about 4 days so far and seems to be working. Use it as often as possible. That's it. Good luck.
I found that one of the easy things to do is to keep a small child step-up stool in your toilet and when you need to pass a motion put your feet up onto the stool and sit back with a straight back when on the toilet seat, never lean forward as this restricts the bowel passage.
Also RELAX. I am only 5ft tall, and so a foot stall is the best. Also keep a big bottle of organic shea based lotion with a pump top and spread a little of the lotion onto your loo paper to prevent a sore bottom before exiting the toilet.
Also drink Kambucha and eat only non processed foods from nature. I had horrid, painful, debilitating rectal fissures for almost two years, and I finally healed them by doing these five things: 1. Because animal fats turn to acid in the digestive system, and therefore irritate the open wound of a fissure, I stoppped eating all animal products, and went on a vegan diet for 6 weeks.
I had thought that squatting was best for defecating, but instead I leaned back, which no longer put pressure on the fissures.
I made rectal suppositories by cutting small pieces of aloe vera plant just the inside of the leaf-not thte green! Visualization: at bedtime and in the morning I visuallized the fissures closing up, and the cells growing back together I had been on the brink of going in for surgery, very depressed, but by doing these things religiously for 6 weeks, I am completely healed, Yay!!!
My doctor was amazed, and wanted to know the tricks! I have suffered with Anal Fissures for around 8 months following a nasty virus which gave me diarreah. I initially had blood then I began to experience sharp pain during any bowel movement followed by hours of pain during the day. This is a terrible condition and I fully sympathise with anyone going through any part of what I have experienced during the last few months.
Initially I went to a private doctor, who prescribed me GNT ointment, which gave me a headache once applied to the anus. This helped a little with the pain, but not much else. At the same time I hit on a very stressful work period - I was overworked as well as worried over my business, which brought back the anal fissure issue.
The doctor didnt think the two were linked and encouraged me to continue with the ointment. After some more time I gave up on the ointments from the chemist, concentrating on more natural methods. Most of this came from this site - so i thank all who have contributed. I will describe my regime, please feel free to ask me any questions. At night around 8PM I take prune juice, a laxative, magnesium tablets and some water.
this helps the BM in the morning. First thing in the morning, back to the Manuka, in and around! With me, this stimulates a BM within 30 mins. This has got progressivley less painfull every day. I nuked some coconut oil a quarter of a small jar added ml of virgin olive oil and 35 drops of basil oil essential oil grade then froze it in my freezer.
After every BM and at intervals during the day I break off small shards of this about the same size as the end of your little finger and use it as a supository. You have to be fairly quick in inserting it as it melts very quickly. This is WORKING for me, it has gone from most of the day pain to morning pain only, and getting better every day. I am not out of the woods yet, but I am very sure this will work if I continue. I will keep the board informed of my further progress if anyone is interested.
I also have an appointment with my doctor on the 11th August where I am going to explain my regime and I am looking forward to his response! I have been praying and praying for healing and I believe I have found a remedy.
At the very least I have some serious relief from this debilitating pain. Thanks to Dr. Kim and those who have offered advice, it has helped me tremendously, I mean that.
It takes a bit of work, but that is a small price to pay for good health. First, your diet must improve. Water, fresh fruits and vegetables, beans, nuts and seeds, etc. should be staples of your daily eating regimen.
However, that is not enough on its own if you have a fissure or hemorrhoid. I began taking sitz baths twice a day, and that helped a bit but not as much as the following, plus I began to break out with heat rashes from the very warm temperature. Every morning I squeeze one half of a fresh lemon and mix it with one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. I do this early and don't consume anything else for at least one hour.
Afterward I eat as I would normally. This seems to help my constipation issues more than anything else I have done, and I have done a LOT. Based on the advice here I also began to grease my rectum with olive oil, manuka honey and basil oil. However, initially, I was in so much pain that it hurt to even touch that area much less actually insert my finger somewhat.
However, the ingredients must get inside of you to work. This mixture was very liquid so I refrigerated it to solidify the olive oil a bit and it became a bit easier to apply. After a day or two, I had a bit of relief and attempted to make a home made suppository using this combination, but it did not work.
Even freezing it was ineffective because the olive oil is too viscous. I then switched to coconut oil Nutiva: virgin, unrefined,cold-pressed and achieved the desired results. If the coconut oil is solid, heat it over a double boiler, it liquefies very easily. However, it will not blend with the honey and basil oil in a liquid state.
As it cools and begins to harden it will become the perfect consistency to mix everything together. Tossing it in the fridge for a few minutes will accomplish this. I then made my own suppositories using baby bottle nipples and pacifier nipples they sell suppository kits, but I wanted to save some money.
Put the nipples in an ice cube tray and put the mixture into the nipple portion only the narrow end. Toss them in the freezer and you have the perfect suppository for healing a fissure or a hemorrhoid. Insert one every night before bed.
Treat anal fissures
Now, in doing these things you may feel the urge to go right away, but your body is healing itself and those muscles that Dr.
Kim spoke of in the rectum are beginning to relax. Your bowels are also turning into the proper consistency. Be consistent with these steps, especially the olive oil and the good diet. Praise the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for the unspeakable, humanly incomprehensible wonders of His creation, and thanks to all who have offered advice on this very sensitive subject.
I had this problem while on vacation and nothing seemed to help until I took natural Vitamin E. It worked like magic. In less than two days the problem disappeared. To get rid of Hemorrhoids for ever, Take, Rutin a vitamin with vitamin C. If you take it everyday, you should Never get Hemorrhoids again. Btw check out on Google about Rutin. Eating wet fibrous foods such as peaches and eating chili with beans for lunch twice a week, which is also a fibrous food, there is never a worry that the bowels will not work properly.
I include eating one to two cloves of elephant garlic 4 to 5 times a week with breakfast and then wash the odor from my hair and body and put on fresh or non-garlicky smelling clothing so I won't stink others out, fried on a gentle medium to medium-low heat until lightly golden brown and softened, as it helps to heal the stomach and helps built up gases come out.
Some call the "farting" from garlic an allergic reaction but, from my own experience, expelling gas is good and it is nice afterwards to have no pressure from bloating and a flatter stomach.
Having worked on a switchboard for years, I was always stressed and had some painful bowel movements. I have done breath work occasionally so I started breathing and focusing my mind near the tailbone.
At first it took 2 days before I went to the bathroom. then it got much faster as i would start breathing around that area of my body, when i wanted to go but couldn't. Now if I ever get constipation, I found a great a fiber pill I take and do my breathing trick and go almost immediately. It always works and the fiber pill just helps pull more out. For anal fissures, patients must eat some spinach with every meal including breakfast and some squeezed lemon juice with it.
The greens will soften stools and prevent constipation, and the vitamin c will help heal.
How long do Anal Fissures last? - Do Anal Fissures go away? - Apollo Hospitals
Years ago my doctor told me to use Anusol to relieve the extreme discomfort I was experiencing with my anal fissure. She offered no solution at all. It arose after I had a very difficult delivery of my son and burdened me for years.
Fed up with the pain and the blood, I decided to change my diet. I eliminated red meat and deep fried foods. The fissure healed much to my extreme satisfaction and relief. When I attempted to eat red meat again the fissure re-opened and I could barely sit and I again bled when I had a bowel movement.
I learned my lesson: never again to red meat. I have not had a steak, or a hamburger or a pork chop in over a decade, and I also avoid greasy food like chicken wings. I am almost a vegetarian meaning I skip eating meat entirely probably every other day, consume vegetables and fruit daily, and the only meat I eat is chicken, turkey and fish.
No steak in the world is worth the pain of a fissure.
Sorry, that treat anal fissures excellent idea
To make a long story short: a change in diet was the answer. Hi Jennie, I appreciate your article and have had the same issue occur. It is alarming when it happened and I read as much as I could and this was the start of may changes. I changed my diet immediately using tips and recipes from Dr. I also made certain that my food in general was softer consistency for a while; steamed veggies; mashed up beans etc.
It does work! Hi all of you that suffer from this painful condition. In the beginning the pain was worst when performing 2, but later on the pain developed after hours because of spasms. It took about 3,5 weeks from the Rectogesic was introduced. I have been free of pain and spasms for 5 days now.
Consider, that treat anal fissures speaking
Btw, it is important to keep the stools silky smooth, mine has been like a continous soft stool. And no pressing, use some standing position to easen the procedure. Anal fissure are aggravated by spasms of Anal sphincter which in turn cause pain, reduced blood supply to anal skin where anal fissures are there. I am suffering from anal fissures for decades and whenever I resorted to anal dilator the fissure healed invariably but it relapse after weeks to month of stopping dilation as the Anal sphincter tone comes back.
I tried to continue use of anal dilator even after healing but become lazy when pain subsides and default in treatment. My tips. Mine started several months ago with itchy irritation then developed into a tear. I have suffered pain and absolute agony.
But I'm on the mend. Here's how.
I tried 2 ointments at first. First Rectogesic then a private prescription for Diltiazem. Neither really helped in my case. So the consultant recommended Botox injection. After I had the injection it was agony the first day or so probably because I didn't keep to a soft diet. But I learnt my lesson! But I have to say it is now slowly healing. If I do the following things I get pain free bowel movements whilst the healing process is working.
So read on folks. Pray Pray for healing. You can learn a lot about yourself when you suffer something like this. Consultants advice My consultant has advised me my stools should be like toothpaste in consistency whilst I'm healing.
Which makes sense for this to heal. Laxatives and stool softeners I take 3 teaspoons of lactulose in the morning and 3 in the evening to soften the stools. I also take 3 sachets of Movicol in the day. These are the laxatives and stool softeners that work for me. I've tried others.
But do your homework on laxatives as some shouldn't be used for prolonged periods. Water Drink water and often. Then drink some more. A glass before bed time and a glass when you first wake up also help. Tip - always have a glass of water to hand.
Try to minimise tea and coffee to 1 or 2 cups a day. I also drink Rubicon still Guava drink which seems to help. Breakfast I have fruit and water. Usually oranges and plumbs. Sometimes kiwi and strawberries or mango. All soft fruit. Often i have cereal to. Weetabix or Allbran. I usually mix the 2 and have soya milk on top. But not a massive portion. Main meals I have found that a bean salad with a large tomato and some parsley passes quite smoothly through my bowls so I would definitely recommend that.
I usually put a salad cream or dressing on top to make it more tasty. Bowel movement Use sensitive non fragrance flushable toilet tissue wipes rather than toilet paper. This helps greatly!! Be very gentle but keep it clean. This really reduced my soreness on my skin. Regular toilet tissue was just to rough for me. Always go to the toilet as soon as u feel the need.
Dont wait. I find a cup of decaf kenco coffee with soya milk helps. Strange but true! Dont strain on your bowel movements if at all possible. Sit and avoid squatting as some people do. Saline solution If you can then then once a day get someone to clean the area after your bowel movement and shower with saline solution. This has also helped me starting to heal. You are trying to stop the area getting infected also! Barrier ointment Use nappy rash cream as a barrier to protect the skin very recommended for when you walk.
I use metanium the yellow not the white. I apply this after my shower or after saline solution. Walk often to get your blood circulating and fresh blood to the area to promote healing. But dont walk too much that it makes the area sweaty. Walks of about 20 mins duration work well for me. Underwear Keep your underwear soft and clean!!!
But be aware some softeners and detergents might irritate your skin so do your research. This is working for me. You HAVE to have soft stools for it to start healing. I will keep a soft diet for some time after its healed. Maybe 3 months. One thing to note if I deviate from any of the above then I might get pain so I'm sticking to this rigidly to allow it to heal.
Sometimes you may need a 2nd botox injection apparently. I had mine privately in London.
Something is. treat anal fissures that
Starting treatment early can alleviate symptoms faster and allow the fissure to heal. Sometimes, a fissure may lead to a fistula -an abnormal connection that forms between two body parts-or a pocket of infection called an abscess.
Research suggests about four in five CD-related anal fissures heal by themselves. In the meantime, experts recommend sitz baths, during which you submerge your buttocks and hips in water.
Topical pain relievers like lidocaine may also help; ask your HCP which ones could work for you. Getting a handle on diarrhea or constipation is also key. For constipation, your HCP may recommend additional fluids, more fiber or a stool softener. Again, consult your HCP for guidance. To better your chances of healing, your HCP will prescribe drugs to relax the anal sphincter muscles, which can relieve pressure, help improve blood flow, and alleviate pain.
A topical nitroglycerin ointment or calcium channel blocker, such as nifedipine, are effective first-line options.
Use H-Fissures. This is the product that healed my anal fissure and allowed me to avoid the need for anal fissure surgery.
To this day it still amazes me that all natural oils is what healed my anal fissure. Was I skeptical at first? Yes, just like you I thought the oil was a scam.
You will have to trust a complete stranger and buy the oil and apply it as directed. If you have any questions at all, do not hesitate to CONTACT ME. I am glad to answer any questions that you might have about anal fissures or the H-Fissures oil. I completely understand that you might be skeptical about using the H-Fissures oil. So was I. Since so many visitors to my site think the H-Fissures oil is a scam I decided to do a review of the oil and answer the most commonly asked questions I receive.
You have heard it before, but it really is something so simple that you can do to really make a difference in your overall health. You want to drink at least 8 ounces of water 8 times per day. I cannot stress enough how important it is for you to drink plenty of water every day, so if you do nothing else on this list, please make sure you at least drink plenty of water.
I know this sounds simple and is something we should do every day, but I feel that it needs to be included in this list.
For any injury on your body to heal, the most important thing you will do is to keep the area clean so it does not get infected. If your anal fissure gets infected you will most likely end up having surgery to correct the problem.
So, in order to avoid this situation, I want you to make sure that you shower daily and keep your buttocks area clean through out the day after each bowel movement.
1. Your going to need a few things from the shop - The first is Anusol Cream (despite people saying its not as good as preperation H and other stuff its has worked wonders for this reigime and is designed for anal fissures and hemeroids. The second is COCONUT OIL (MAGIC STUFF).Reviews: These may include a medicated cream (to help heal the fissure), a topical muscle relaxant (to relax the anal muscles), an anesthetic ointment (to reduce pain, if pain interferes with having a bowel movement), or nitroglycerin or calcium channel blocker ointments (to relax the anal muscles and increase blood flow to the region, promoting healing) Treatment at home for uncomplicated anal fissures can include eating more fiber, using stool softeners, drinking more water, using sitz baths, and using a local anesthetic to decrease pain.

Following up on keeping your body clean, keeping your anus clean after each bowel movement is vitally important. You can use the Preparatoin H Medicated Wipes with Witch Hazel and AloeTucks Medicated Pads, or even baby wipes to keep the area clean.
Most anal fissures don't require extensive treatment. However, certain home remedies can help promote healing and relieve uncomfortable symptoms. You can treat an anal fissure DO THESE 10 THINGS AND YOU WILL HEAL YOUR ANAL FISSURE NATURALLY JUST LIKE I DID. 1. Use H-Fissures. This is the product that healed my anal fissure and allowed me to avoid the need for anal fissure surgery. To this day it still amazes me that all natural oils is what healed my anal fissure Anal fissures can bleed and be intensely painful, he explains, and may lead to potentially dangerous medical issues, like abscesses and fistulas. Fortunately, fissures don't often get that far. Here's the lowdown on these small lesions, including their characteristics, symptoms, and treatment
The wipes will feel better than just using toilet paper and will also aid in preventing infection. It is worth noting that even though the medicated wipes are designed for Hemorrhoid relief, they are great at keeping your anus clean. You will probably not get any relief from the pain of your anal fissure from using the wipes. After cleaning the anus with the wipe it is important to dry the area with toilet paper or a soft towel. I have also found that putting some baby powder on your toilet paper and wiping it on your anus will aid in keeping the area dry.
Now is not the time to use the cheap toilet paper because you are trying to save money. You want to use the softest toilet paper you can buy. The less abrasive the toilet paper is when being wiped over the fissure the better. Charmin Ultra-Soft is one of the best papers on the market and has gotten many great reviews from many people who have personally wiped their own rear ends with it ??.
One of the major causes of an anal fissure is constipation. When we have to strain to make a bowel movement we are putting excessive force on the anus. This combination of a large stool that has to be forced out of the body can easily cause an anal fissure.
I strongly believe this is how I first got a small cut on my anus. At the time, my doctor said I had Hemorrhoids.
