It develops in women and men of all ages equally. Rectal bleeding in infancy is primarily caused by an anal fissure.

A fissure that has been present for less than 6 weeks is called an acute fissure, and one that has been present for more than 6 weeks is considered a chronic fissure. Acute and chronic fissures can both be treated at home with medicines and Ayurvedic remedies. However, if the condition progresses, surgery will be required.

Fissure laser surgery is both painless and bloodless. During the procedure, the patient is given a local anesthetic. Painkillers are commonly used to treat post-operative pain.

 A tear or incision at the anal hole is referred to as an anal fissure. Simple home cures and pharmaceuticals usually heal it in 3-4 weeks. If laser surgery is used to treat the fissure, the patient can return to work the same day and complete healing takes 1-2 weeks.

 Foods that cause constipation should be avoided. To avoid constipation, boost your liquid intake and eat a fiber-rich diet. Constipation is the most common cause of fissures.

Some lifestyle changes and drugs can help mend fissures. Physical activity, enough fluid intake, and a fiber-rich diet are all examples of lifestyle changes. Sitting in warm water after a bowel movement also alleviates discomfort.
