Anal fissure is a cut or a tear in the mucosal lining of the anus or at the junction of mucus and skin lining of the anus. Most common reason for its occurrence is hard and large stool at times with obstinate constipation. A person suffering from an acute anal fissure typically experience severe sharp cutting pain while passing stool, which can last from few minutes to few hours. It can be associated with bleeding and pressurised feeling along the anal area. In some cases, anal fissures can also be associated with Haemorrhoids. While once of occurrence can be addressed by using external numbing gels and sitz bath, a recurrent condition needs a proper treatment to improve the tendency. The scope of Homeopathy is significant in recurrent Fissures and Fistulas.

SCOPE OF HOMEOPATHY IN ANAL FISSURES:
While Homeopathy can address the acute symptoms with short acting remedies, the main scope of Homoeopathy is in addressing the recurrent tendency of anal fissures.
Individualized remedies are selected based on the totality of the condition, pattern of the anal fissures, predispositions, family history and person’s body constitution. Indicated remedies given in certain potencies and frequencies tend to enhance the body’s ability to treat itself by subtly stimulating the healing patterns in the body.
Depending on the case, a series of remedies can be selected to give a positive outcome. Most cases respond well with varied results from improving the presenting symptoms to preventing the future recurrence.
You can also use Homeopathic remedies along with other conventional treatments.
Homoeopathic remedies should always be taken in the guidance of a qualified and experienced practitioner who has good knowledge in selection of indicated remedies, potencies and dosage.
Your Homeopath along with prescribing Homeopathic remedies can also advise you of diet and lifestyle changes to achieve best outcome of the treatment.
