How to cure fissures permanently?

August | 2021

An anal fissure is a minute tear in the thin walled tissue (moist mucosa) lining the anus. According to skilled proctologists at House of Doctors, fissure may develop if you have been passing hard and large stools which irritate the anal opening. Initially, anal fissures don’t develop symptoms but as they progress, they can cause pain and extreme bleeding during bowel movements. Our experts also suggest that you can experience spasms in the anal sphincter (muscle present at the end of your anus).

Our empanelled ano-rectal surgeons explain that fissures are very common in infants but can develop in people of any age. Most anal fissures might require a treatment. Our surgeons treat some cases using medications while others require surgery.

Include these items in your diet to prevent anal fissures?

As per our rectal surgeons, knowing the right food for fissure treatment and consuming a balanced diet is important. House of Doctors recommends consuming the following foods to prevent anal fissures -

  • Food rich in fibre
  • Plenty of fruits and green vegetables
  • Whole grains and Nuts
  • Citrus fruits (contain antioxidants)
  • Peas and beans
  • Lentils (daal), peanuts, chickpeas
  • Wheat bran
  • Curd and probiotics
  • Flax seeds
  • Apple, papaya, watermelon
  • Root vegetables, broccoli

HOD’s doctors suggest you not to consume certain food items as they can lead to the formation of hard stools -

  • Junk food or spicy food
  • Canned and processed food items
  • Fried food
  • Meat
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol

Correct sleeping position for fissure

According to our medical professionals, your favourite sleeping position might increase the anal fissure pain and can make it troublesome for you to get a good night’s sleep. Our surgical gastroenterologists suggest wearing clean cotton undergarments and loose-fitting pyjamas when going to sleep. HOD also advises you to sleep on your stomach to reduce anal fissure pain and place a pillow under your hips.

Taking a fully body warm bath before bed is recommended for reducing the pain levels and helping you fall asleep better. Our doctors ask you to avoid sleeping on your back as it can pressurize the anal area and increase pain. Also, sitting for prolonged hours and following a sedentary lifestyle should also be avoided.
