An anal fissure most often occurs when passing large or hard stools. Chronic constipation or frequent diarrhea can also tear the skin around our anus. Other common causes include:
- Straining during childbirth or bowel movements
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), such as Crohn’s disease
- Decreased blood flow to the anorectal area
- Overly tight or spastic anal sphincter muscles
In rare cases, an anal fissure may develop due to:
Nitric Acid -Useful to control bright red blood passing from the anus along with stool. The bleeding is accompanied by a tearing and stitching pain in the anus.
Phosphorus -Useful for anal fissure when there is bleeding from the anus and the stool is long and hard with much offensiveness.
Sulphur-Useful for anal fissure with itching in the anus accompanied by burning sensation.
Paeonia -Useful for anal fissure when there is offensive fluid discharge from longstanding anal Fissures. Very useful when anus seems ulcerated and torn with intolerable pain during and after stool passage.
