Natural treatment of Anal Fissure

Is Natural treatment of anal fissure possible, of course yes, read on to find out!

An anal fissure is a small split or tear in the thin moist tissue (mucosa) lining the lower rectum (anus). Fortunately there is natural treatment of anal fissure in homeopathy.


Anal fissures are very common in young infants, but may occur at any age. The rate of anal fissures drops with age. Fissures are much less common among school-aged children than infants.

In adults, fissures may be caused by passing large, hard stools, or by having diarrhea for a long time. Other factors may include:

  • Decreased blood flow to the area in older adults
  • Too much tension in the sphincter muscles that control the anus
  • Anal fissures are also common in women after childbirth and in persons with Crohn’s disease.


Anal fissures may cause painful bowel movements and bleeding. There may be blood on the outside of the stool or on the toilet tissue (or baby wipes) after a bowel movement.

Symptoms may begin suddenly or develop slowly over time.

Other symptoms may include:

  • A crack in the skin that can be seen when the area is stretched slightly (the fissure is almost always in the middle)
  • Constipation
