First steps to consider
- If you feel pain or see blood when you have a bowel movement, see a healthcare provider to get diagnosed and treated.
- Treatment may include numbing medications for the pain, treating constipation that may be causing the fissure, and other medications to help with healing.
- Stool softeners and fiber supplements can help with constipation that may be contributing to the fissure or making the pain worse.
- A sitz bath (sitting in warm shallow water) can be soothing.
Go to the ER if you are bleeding a lot or start to feel lightheaded or dizzy.
