is it like super bad that you can't sit down? And weirdly enough you get slight relief from sitting on the toilet even if you don't do anything? Because that was the point of pain mine got to and my only option was surgery, so if it is that bad do you have a hospital or after hours clinic you can get to? The only other over the counter medication that might work is mersyndol but if it is at a surgical point I am really not sure how good any medication will work. Sorry I can't be better help it really is the most horribly intense pain that I would wish on anyone

I had one after the birth of my son. I recommend all of the following:
-bath in Epsom salts (these are amazing!)
-drink A LOT of water
-high fibre foods
-absolutely zero straining on the loo

Scheriproct works wonders but it's expensive. If you can afford it, it's worth it!
ETA: I paid $45 for mine about 5 months ago. You can get suppositories as well and they are pricey too.

I'm also breastfeeding and GP knew this when advised me to try the Proctosydel ointment. Hope you get relief soon

I know this is an older thread but wanted to share what helped me incase anyone else was looking for relief.
I honestly cannot explain the amount of pain I was in from having a fissure. I have nothing to compare it to..my life was misersble. Id just had a baby, was blocked up for 2 weeks.. finally did a poop and it was like dry rocks. It caused a tear and my goodness..I think I would rather have chopped my hand off..
It then became a continuous cycle. I lived my life around my bowel movements knowing that if I pooped, I would be in pain for at least 8 hrs afterwards.
I tried all the creams and nothing worked. I ended up seeing a specialist who put me on movicol to soften everything up. It took about a week but it eventually worked as well as drinking 3 litres of water a day! It healed!!
