    Why not dedicate 2-3weeks to help your fissure heal properly? Promote good bowels with Metamucil, healthy foods. Use creams, suppositories to make voiding more comfortable and let your tear heal.

    I had one a couple years ago and actually had no pain but was just passing quite a lot of blood (was turning water red). Like you I was given a steroid cream and suppositories and it did heal ok within about a week. I did also take lactulose as the dr thought it would be beneficial to use stool softeners. It did tear again a few months ago but healed up on its own.
    I would say the best thing is to keep using stool softeners for a while such as lactulose. Try not to stress, it's not nice I know but just make sure you keep the area clean and use the cream until it heals. I imagine the dose of steroid is very small and you are using it on a small area so personally I wouldn't worry about the steroid use at all. Good luck I hope it heals fully for you soon.

    When DD was a newborn I had one. I had to use suppositories for a while until it healed, which it did.

    Does the cream numb the area? I never used numbing cream, I figured it was important to be able to feel if it had healed. I only stopped using the suppositories (combined with a high fibre diet) if I was sure it had healed.

    Just walked into a pharmacy and asked the ever-so-awkward question and they sold it over the counter. I quite like pharmacists, they know more than a lot of people realise

    I had this and started to get really worried. I had a colonoscopy and all good. I know exactly what you mean, you described it perfectly. All I can say is one day it just didn't happen again. No creams or anything it just healed.
