    Witch hazel can help heal and take out the sting.

    I have no medical training but if it's bad enough to warrant seeing a doctor then I would treat it like a 3rd degree tear.

    - Lots of fibre. Try Metamucil. I find it tastes better if you stir it into cordial.
    - No straining on the toilet. Remember the 'poo' position. When you sit lean slightly forward and heels up off the floor (so the balls of your feet are on the floor).
    - Shower after a bowel movement to clean the area thoroughly.
    - Be very gentle on yourself.

    I have had one they are agonising and quiet possibly the worse pain I have ever felt, I was pregnant and ended up having surgery for mine and then being put in hospital on pain management and antibiotics because of infection. You can get a haemorrhoid cream that will numb that mind help but other then that I suggest panadine extra which you can get over the counter and warm salt baths.

    I used proctysorel (sp) haem cream on my fissures aswell as water fibre witchhazel - I'd have loads of blood and then one day I had no pain.
    It's awful, I really feel for you x

    Thanks i got up in the middle of the night last night cause it was keeping me awake and used rectinol which is numbing & i swear it made it worse...could be i was just super tired. I also googled & it said harmorrhoid cream shouldnt be used cause it is designed to stop blood circ which would stop a fissure healing??!?
