Not easy to consult because of anal fissure ! And yet, this condition (often painful) is the second reason for proctological consultation behind hemorrhoids . You are not alone!
Generally benign - although it can hurt a lot! - the anal fissure is resorbed in the vast majority of cases. But to avoid the need for surgery, it is better to do it on time. But its location in the most intimate part of our anatomy makes things delicate. It is often thought that a little warm water with an ointment will settle the case. This is not the case unfortunately.
The anal fissure is a wound located inside the anal canal, usually at the commissures. Repeated constipation attacks in adults and young children can cause a crack. Its healing will be delayed by passing stools, especially if they are hard. The sphincter of the anus will have more difficulty to open, which will then cause significant pain.
What are the symptoms of anal fissure? How to treat it? And what are its causes? And which medical specialist will see if the problem is difficult to resolve? Explanations on an intimate question that one does not sometimes dare to approach even with his general practitioner.
