Hi, thanks so much for your reply
My husband is currently on Nifedipine 0.2% ointment, which is like a calcium blocker. I know this problem is far from being treated but it's very frustrating at times, sometimes his anal area is so soar & the pain is so unbearable at times & it's very tender too, he finds though that when he uses advil gel caps it does stop the pain for a while..
