What are the symptoms of Anal Fissure?

  • Pain:This is the most distressing symptom. Pain is characteristically pricking in nature and comes on when the individual begins to strain to pass stool. The pain is such that there is a high degree of residual burning and smarting in the anal region even after passing stool.
  • Bleeding:In some cases, the fissure may bleed and the blood may be seen coming out in drops or with the stool.
  • More constipation:Because of the immense fear of the pain and bleeding, the person may actually avoid passing stool. He/she will ignore the urge and this will result in added constipation.

Why does Anal Fissure occur?

What happens if you take a delicate cloth and stretch it? At some point of time, because of the immense strain you apply on it, it will tear. This is exactly what happens in the anal canal. When excess strain is applied, the fragile mucosa tears and a fissure results.

The commonest reason for this is Constipation. Hard stools require more pressure to be eliminated and so the person strains more.

Recurrent loose motions due to any reason can also cause damage to the mucosa resulting in a fissure.

Childbirth can increase the risk of anal fissure since a tremendous amount of strain is applied in the lower abdomen to deliver a child.

How does Homeopathy Treatment help in Anal Fissure?

Anal fissure is not to be taken lightly. Although in some cases, the fissure can heal spontaneously, most people are not so lucky. Moreover, chances of recurrence are high.

In such a situation, it is always advisable to go in for a solution that not just offers temporary relief, but also looks at the big picture by considering the cause and preventing recurrence.

Homeopathy works by taking care of the root cause of the fissure along with the symptoms so that the relief obtained is not only superlative but also longer lasting.
