TREATMENT WITHOUT VISITING THE DOCTOR
For anal analgesia, try to regularly open the bowel and increase fibre and fluid intake. We recommend that you take a ten-minute sitting bath in warm water to release the sphincter and reduce the pain. Improved hygiene in the rectum is essential to prevent the development of infection or abscess. We recommend using a wet cloth instead of toilet paper to clean. This method will help heal most cracks within a few weeks.
If you decide to ask for a doctor’s advice, you may be given medical treatment (softening suppositories) that moisturize the rectum channel and promote healing or hydrocortisone suppositories that relieve itching but slow down healing. MUDr. Allen Dimov.
After an unsuccessful two-week conservative treatment using ointment and suppositories, an intervention is needed where the edges of the crack are treated with a laser and sclerotization of the base of the fissure is performed. The procedure is carried out in our medical facility under local anaesthesia and lasts approximately 15 to 40 minutes. No hospitalization is necessary after the procedure, the patient goes home.
