How To Heal Your Anal Fissure Quickly.

Find out today how to heal your anal fissure through my own personal and painful experience.

What Is An Anal Fissure

If you feel like you are passing glass when you go to the toilet and if you are still sore a few hours later it is highly likely you are suffering from an anal fissure.

An anal fissure usually isn’t a serious condition. It can affect people of all ages. It is often seen in infants and young children, since constipation is a common problem in these age groups.

In most cases, the tear heals on its own within four to six weeks. In cases where the anal fissure persists beyond eight weeks, it’s considered chronic.

An anal fissure is a tiny paper thin break in the skin of the anus which may be superficial or deep depending on how long you have had it. Very often it can be difficult to actually see. For something usually so tiny it causes terrible pain probably the worst type of pain I have ever experienced. Read on if you want to discover how I finally healed my anal fissure quickly.

What causes an anal fissure?

Anal fissures are caused by injury or trauma to the anal canal. This can happen when:

  • You pass a large stool.
  • You are constipated and try to pass a hard stool.
  • You have repeated diarrhoea.
  • Giving birth can cause injury to the anal canal.

Fissures can also be caused by a rectal exam, anal intercourse, or a foreign object. In some cases, a fissure may be caused by Crohn’s disease.

Many physicians believe that extra tension in the two muscular rings controlling the anus may also be a cause of fissures.

Symptoms Of An Anal Fissure.

An anal fissure may cause one or more of the following symptoms:

  • sharp pain in the anal area during bowel movements.
  • streaks of blood on stools or on toilet after wiping.
  • burning or Itching in the anal area.
  • a visible tear in the skin around your anus.
  • Pain for two to 3 hours or more after using the toilet.
  • A skin tag or small lump of skin next to the tear.

The Daily Routine That Helped Heal My Anal Fissure.

You can start this routine in the evening because usually the pain will have subsided from your morning bowel movement. This routine came as a result of much trial and error, online research and help from others who experienced this same painful condition. Thankfully many people are able to finally heal their anal fissure quickly.

  1. Before you go to bed take a desertspoonful of olive oil 2 dried apricots, DulcoEase Stool Softener, 30 Soft Gel Capsules” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>a Dulco Ease tablet (this softens your poo and makes it easier to pass) and a large glass of water and go and have a good nights sleep.
  2. When you wake up take a glass of warm water and ibuprofen tabs before you go to the toilet. Only go if you feel the urge. My GI Doctor said don’t sit longer than 3 mins. If it doesn’t come go and do something and come back again when it will come more easily.
  3. When it does finally come there are various things you can do to make it less painful. This next tiny little thing I did made a major improvement in my healing time. Before going to the toilet apply a tiny bit of Vaseline Original Petroleum Jelly 100g” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Vaseline pure petroleum jelly on the anal area and inside a little as well. This will help the poo to slide out more easily.
  4. When the pain is still severe at the beginning have a warm bath running that you can step into immediately to get rapid pain relief.
  5. I also invested in a Homecraft Portable Bidet for Standard Toilet, Personal Hygiene Solution, Personal Care Washing Bowl Toilet with Soap Dish, Ideal for Travel, Easy to Clean and Empty, Fits Standard Toilet Seats” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>sitz bath that sat on the toilet. I could fill it with warm water and sit on it for 10mins after a bowel movement. Some people find it easier to poo while sitting in the warm water…as the heat relaxes the anal muscle. This relieves pain but is also good for cleaning the area. It is important the area is kept very clean so that healing can take place.
  6. When the pain has decreased, continue on with your day as normal.

Other Things That Helped Heal

My Anal Fissure.

  1. Throughout the healing process I drank loads of water to soften my stools and prevent constipation.
  2. While I was at the healing stage I very often just ate greens, stewed apples and drank loads of water.
  3. I also fasted for two days to give my digestive system a rest and give my anal area a head start on the healing process.
  4. It is also important to keep moving. If your job entails a lot of sittting at a desk get up every hour and have a short walk.This improves the blood flow to the area and promotes healing.
  5. At night time go through the same process as above again.Within a few weeks i noticed a great reduction in my pain levels and within 4 weeks there was very little pain.
  6. However if I deviated from the regime and my stools were not soft the anal fissure opened again as it takes months for the skin in that area to become strong again.

The Dangers Of High Blood Pressure…symptoms and treatments.

High Blood pressure is often called the silent killer. Symptoms are often not obvious. Exercising and changing your diet are the first ways of starting to reduce your blood pressure.

The Dangers Of High Blood Pressure……symptoms and management.

High blood pressure is a condition in a person when the pressure  of the blood within your blood vessels is higher than normal.. There are several causes of this condition.The symptoms of high blood pressure may not be physically noticeable unless a person goes for a check up to their Doctor. High blood pressure is also known as the silent killer because of the subtlety of its symptoms.It often takes years for this condition to become obvious.



Possible Symptoms Of High Blood pressure

High blood pressure or hypertension is a condition in which a person’s heart rate is elevated compared to the normal blood pressure range of most people. This condition can be fatal in many people especially those who are not aware that they have this condition. The symptoms of high blood pressure are usually very vague and non specific.This is why the condition is often overlooked if the person does not have any idea that they might have high blood pressure.


Non Specific Symptoms Of High Blood Pressure


One of the vague possible symptoms of high blood pressure is a headache.Although there is little evidence that these are the specific symptoms of high blood pressure many people with high blood pressure often report these symptoms are especially when their heart rate accelerates. Being dizzy is also another of the more subtle symptoms of high blood pressure. Accompanying the dizziness is a feeling of nausea that does not happen often to the person who may have high blood pressure.

Yet another of the subtle or non specific types of symptoms of high blood pressure is blurry vision. This symptom is the one that may cause a person to panic since it is not actually a common thing to have. Some of these symptoms may prompt a person to see their doctor or have a check up.


Implications Of High Blood Pressure

There are several things that are affected by having high blood pressure. One of the first things affected by having this condition is the size of a person’s heart. Since high blood pressure means that the heart is working harder to pump the blood around the body it  tends to grow bigger than normal size. While it may seem ideal to have a larger heart, it also means that the tissues are expanded beyond what they are capable of. Eventually, the heart will wear out faster than a normal sized heart. This is due to the double effort it makes to meet the demands of the body of a person with high blood pressure.   

The arteries and other blood vessels may also suffer as a result of the high pressure. This condition speeds up the hardening of the arteries due to over exertion to bring the blood to the various parts of the body. Hardened arteries will be unable to keep up a steady flow of blood to vital organs which can lead to a stroke, heart attack and kidney failure among other things. People with high blood pressure run a high risk of dying from a stroke much more than those with normal blood pressure.


Treatment and Management of blood pressure.

Treating high blood pressure is very important and needs some lifestyle changes and may need the aid of medications. Limiting or eliminating fatty and greasy foods in one’s daily diet is one thing that needs to be done since these contribute to deposits in the arteries which make them narrower. Reducing sugar intake has been proven to reduce blood pressure significantly.

Stopping smoking can also help to control high blood pressure as well as the reduction of alcohol consumption.

Avoiding warm or hot places is also helpful for those with high blood pressure since extreme heat can accelerate the heart rate In its efforts to cool the body down. Staying too long in a hot tub or a heated pool can  be very dangerous for a person with high blood pressure.

Regular exercise has been proven to reduce blood pressure. At the very least a brisk 30min walk every day will soon start to help bring your blood pressure down.



It is best to have a yearly check of your physical health including your blood pressure.

In between visits to your Doctor it is a good idea to invest in your own blood pressure monitor so you keep a close check on your blood pressure yourself.
