Hello! I think I have a chronic anal fissure. I never bleed from my anus unless I touch it. It’s not very painful just itchy sometimes and it looks like a scab or a cut, around the deeper parts. I went to the gynecologist for a similar problem last year but she said it was okay. I tend to have pretty bad anxiety about these types of things though. I find myself googling every single possibility. I am pretty young and I don’t have any other symptoms but those. My bowel movements are alright (because I have IBS) but I just want to know if anyone else whose experienced anal fissures have had the same thing. Or should I be worried? I plan on going to the doctors again shortly. Thanks in advanced!

      Hello! I am having similar symptoms. What exactly does yours feel like and look like? Mine looks like small cuts down there… stings and burns when I shower and use the bathroom. Little bit of spotting when I wipe. Is yours similar?

      Hi invest in some preparation h wipes, take fiber and drink plenty of water. But a sitz bath is the fissures come back it helps with pain management and healing it

      I suffer from chronic anal fissure for a few years, and I have healing and recurrence intermittently. I try to maintain remission by keeping the stool soft and cleaning this place several times a day.
