Anal fissure

Description of Anal fissure

Anal fissure is a tear in the lining of the anus. The tear in the skin causes severe pain and some bright red bleeding during and after the bowel movements. It usually occurs due to chronic constipation and can affect all ages. The primary objective of the treatment is to relieve the pain using topical medicines and soften the stools using stool softeners. If an anal fissure does not improve with these treatments, you may need surgery.
