Remedies for Anal Itching and Anal Fissure
An anal fissure will heal in a few weeks. Pain can be relieved by several methods and beside that there are measures that help prevent fissures.
- Consume a high amount of fibers and liquids. This will contribute to the consistency of stools which will be softer and easier to evacuate. If you have a diet low in fibers and liquids, stools can injure the anal canal (in general, will lead to hemorrhoids and anal fissure). Fibers are found in fruits, vegetables, grains. Drink 6-8 glasses of water per day. A fissure already established will be improved if your stools are soft.
- To facilitate the elimination of stools the grease can help. Put grease into the rectum to a depth of one inch and stools will not cause injury.
- Local hygiene plays an essential role. Anal area should be washed often (morning, evening, after each stool) with wet toilet paper. Also, moisturizing creams have a useful action. Your clothes should be made of cotton and wide enough.
- Diarrhea is not good for anal fissure. It has an acid content. Avoid as long as possible the diarrhea, do not eat food that you know it causes diarrhea.
- The itch makes you scratch, but avoid it if possible. Scratching will further enhance the local inflammation and itching will therefore be even greater.
- Sweat in the anal area. If you have a high weight you sweat more in that area. Sweat will increase healing time. The advice is to lose weight. Make exercises, eat healthier (as I wrote in the first point).
- You can obtain an improvement if you get a warm bath. The heat relaxes the anal muscles. Do not put in water salt.
- Foods to avoid: spicy food and pickles.
- Use white toilet paper, unscented and of high quality.
- Try using ointments or suppositories. They are found in pharmacies.
