I just went through hell and back with anal fissure and I was misdiagnosed by my doctor for hemorrhoid. I dragged myself to Earth's Origins homeopathic store and found a whole bunch of stuff lined up on the shelf one after the other.
What helped like magic with the pain in 2 days but I felt that it was helping me right away. It smoothed and numbed the irritated area, what a relief.
- H+Care hemorrhoid cream by Nelsons with Aloe: relieves burning, itching, pain and discomfort, reduces swelling, protects irritated tissue, paraben free.
- Key E natural vitamin E suppositories by Carlson
- Tea Tree Therapy antiseptic cream with tea tree oil and herbal extracts: relieves minor skin irritations.
First it was really difficult to put the suppositories up, I melted the edges off with my finger and then I put H+care on it and Tea Tree cream and then I pushed it in. I also used Q-tips rolled some extra cotton on it from a cotton ball (spin the q tip in 360 to pick up some cotton) so the head got bigger and I wouldn't poke myself. I squeezed some H+care cream on it and tried to push it up gently because it has aloe vera in it, and that helps to heal the skin. It was easier to do this after a very hot sitz bath. I've been taking 4-6 times/day hot sitz baths. That helps the blood supply feed into so it can heal faster. I bought these creams on Saturday and on Monday when I had to go the the bathroom I finally didn't cry from pain! and I went to work too! The pain is a lot more bearable. and I can sit on a chair without a pillow :-)
What I did I used the H+care cream for pain killing and then
I just tracked back where this all begin. I started taking this Super Cleanse herbal pills about 6 months ago, I took it every day religiously morning and night. That's when it started, I noticed right away that it burnt my butt when I had a bowel movement. I thought I just wasn't used to going to the bathroom 3 times a day. I figured I will get used to it but I didn't. So this weekend when it got really bad, I mean really really bad I pulled out the empty Super Cleanse bottle ( I was going to order more) and one of the ingredients are Cayenne pepper. I am allergic to hot spices. So I was damaging myself for 6 months, this cleanser cleaned the skin off my rectum!
I am talking about crying from pain.
I don't know what's gonna happen to the skin tag, it looks like I have a **** in my butt.
