Discussions that mention nifedipine

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) board

I can sooooooooooo relate to your story, I have been battling this beast called an anal fissure for the past 3 years. Read my post and let me know what you think.


I would like to ask you a couple things, has the diarrhea that you have made your fissure really really bad ? or does the diarrhea not affect your fissure that badly ? I have been paranoid about getting chronic diarrhea ever since I have had this stupid anal fissure.

are you putting anything on your anus prior to bowel movements (diarrhea or normal) to create a barrier for your skin ? vaseline ? or Zinc oxide ?

are you using nifedipine 0.2 cream like I am ?

I too have wondered if botox or surgery would be the best option for me...

keep me posted.

take care and if you can buy a bidet for the toilet, I heard it is great for washing sore bottoms :)
