Anal Fissure Treatment in Encino

An anal fissure involves a tear in the lining of the anal canal that may occur while passing hard or large stools, or from trauma. It commonly affects adults and children under 2 years old. Anal fissures can lead to pain, burning, itching, and bleeding during bowel movements as well as a visible crack in the skin around the anus. Although it usually heals on its own without complications, you should seek anal fissure treatment to ensure effective symptom relief and a return to healthy voiding habits.

Most anal fissures can heal on their own with the help of a fiber-rich diet, increased fluid intake and regular exercise. Patients whose anal fissures do not respond to conservative anal fissure treatment may need surgery to relieve symptoms. To prevent anal fissures, patients should take measures to prevent constipation, including a high-fiber diet and regular exercise.
