OTC remedies for anal fissure
I am 99% sure I have a anal fissure. EXTREME pain during BM, tearing feeling, blood.....tears. This has been going on for 1 1/2 years (post delivery of my child) and finally got a referral.
I had an appt yesterday with my gastroenterologist and she's going to examine me with an anoscope in 2 weeks. She prescribes me hydrocortisone suppositories and am instructed to take 6 tsp of Benefiber daily (which I've already been doing).
Is there anything I can do that's OTC until I see her in two weeks to relieve the pain? I've already tried the hemmroid cream and it doesn't seem to help in the least.
