The main symptoms of anal fissures include:
  1. Pain during bowel movements: One of the most common symptoms of anal fissures is pain during bowel movements. This pain is usually sharp, intense, and burning in nature and can last for several hours after passing stool.
  2. Bleeding from the anus: Anal fissures can cause bleeding from the anus, especially during and after bowel movements. The blood is usually bright red and seen on the toilet paper or in the toilet bowl.
  3. Itching or burning sensation: Anal fissures can cause an itching or burning sensation around the anus, which can be uncomfortable.
  4. Difficulty in passing stools: Anal fissures can make it difficult to pass stools, and you may feel like you need to strain during bowel movements.
  5. Feeling of incomplete evacuation: You may feel like you have not completely emptied your bowels after passing stool, even if you strain during bowel movements.
  6. Painful spasms in the anal sphincter: After passing stool, you may experience painful spasms in the anal sphincter, which can be quite uncomfortable.
If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to see a proctologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. If left untreated, anal fissures can lead to complications, such as infection, chronic pain, and difficulty in passing stools.
Anal fissures are small tears or cuts in the skin lining the anus. There can be several causes of anal fissures, including:  
  1. Constipation: Constipation is one of the most common causes of anal fissures. Straining to pass hard, dry stools can cause small tears or cuts in the skin lining the anus. This can be especially true in people who have chronic constipation, which means they frequently pass stools that are hard and difficult to pass.
  2. Diarrhea: On the other end of the spectrum, frequent diarrhea can also cause anal fissures. Frequent bowel movements can cause irritation and inflammation in the anal area, leading to fissures. Additionally, if you wipe too hard or use rough toilet paper while experiencing diarrhea, it can further irritate the anal area and make fissures more likely.
  3. Anal sex: Anal sex can cause injury to the skin around the anus, leading to tears and fissures. This is especially true if the sex is rough, or if the anus is not lubricated sufficiently. Additionally, certain sexually transmitted infections can cause anal fissures.
  4. Childbirth: The pressure on the pelvic area during delivery can cause anal fissures in some women. This is especially true if the delivery involves an episiotomy, which is a surgical cut made in the area between the vagina and anus to help the baby pass through.
  5. Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): IBD, including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, can cause inflammation and ulcers in the anal area, leading to fissures. These conditions can also cause diarrhea and constipation, which can further irritate the anal area.
  6. Aging: As people age, the skin becomes thinner and more prone to injury, including anal fissures. Additionally, as we age, our digestive system can become less efficient, which can lead to constipation and diarrhea, further increasing the risk of fissures.
  7. Infections: Certain infections, such as sexually transmitted infections or fungal infections, can cause anal fissures. Additionally, conditions like herpes can cause painful sores around the anus, which can lead to fissures.
The treatment options for anal fissures depend on the severity of the fissure and the underlying cause. The goal of treatment is to relieve pain, promote healing, and prevent the fissure from recurring. Some common treatment options include:
  1. Dietary changes: Increasing your intake of fiber and fluids can help soften the stool and make it easier to pass, reducing the strain on the anal area. This can help promote healing of the fissure.
  2. Stool softeners: Your healthcare provider may prescribe stool softeners or laxatives to help soften the stool and make it easier to pass.
  3. Topical medications: Your healthcare provider may prescribe topical medications, such as nitroglycerin or calcium channel blockers, which can help relax the sphincter muscle and improve blood flow to the anal area, promoting healing of the fissure.
  4. Pain relievers: Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, can help relieve the pain associated with anal fissures.
  5. Sitz baths: Taking warm sitz baths, where you sit in warm water for 10-15 minutes several times a day, can help relieve pain and promote healing of the fissure.
  6. Surgery: If the fissure is severe and does not respond to other treatments, surgery may be necessary. Surgery typically involves removing the damaged tissue and repairing the anal sphincter.
In addition to these treatment options, it is important to practice good hygiene, avoid constipation, and avoid any activities that may irritate the anal area, such as anal sex. If you are experiencing symptoms of anal fissure, it is important to see a proctologist or general surgeon in dubai for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
