I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.

I am Doctor Thomas, a double board certified doctor in internal medicine and integrative medicine, with advanced training in several other fields. I am a clinician of over 20 years experience. I will give you an initial answer or ask you a question, but be sure to use reply to expert to communicate with me as needed.

I am not really sure what your medical question is

We answer questions here.

The first line of treatment is:

Hot sitz baths

Vegetarian diet

Stool softeners.

Some anal fissures have to be repaired surgically.

For itching in this area, an antifungal cream like chlortrimazole can be tried, but you need testing to make sure it is not bacterial infection as well.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. Also, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here
