Conditions with symptom: 'anal rip'
I have sores around my anal area that are really itchy and bleed mainly at night but also when passing faeces or trying to, I went to the doctor a couple of years ago and was told that I have an anal fissure but I still have it. I was given some cream to insert but it just gave me an headache and dizziness. It is really depressing.
I had anal fissure surgery and 3 piles injected just over 4 weeks ago. For about the last 2 weeks, if i neec to do a poo i have to go right that second, i cannot hold it at all resulting in me actually pooing myself about 7 times now. Its getting too much now, is this normal
Hello. I'm a 16 year old female, it only stings a little when I go toilet. But it hurts more when I wipe down there, even when I wipe after I pee it makes it hurt. It feels like its been cut with something sharp, I'm just wondering if this could be an anal fissure?
I have had an anal fissure for about a year or so now. And it keeps getting worse. I thought it would heal on its own but it hasn't. And it cause a great deal of pain. I don't know what to do. I'm embarrassed to confront my parents about this. But the pain is becoming to much to handle. Im only 15, and there is a lot of blood everytime I use the bathroom... Why should I do?
Hi I have had the same, stupidly I wasn't drinking enough, became dehydrated which caused constipation. When I went it was so hard due to lack of fluids & tore me. The fissure didn't go away like I thought it would. I then avoided going to the loo as long as possible as it hurt so much. The Dr gave me some internal cream & muscle relaxant... Awful I know but it really helped! Not completely healed but I've also not used it as much as I should. Don't suffer as it creates a behavioural problem cycle- you need to poo- you hold it in for fear of pain- the poo gets bigger- you cant hold on- you tense your muscles with fear- your bum tears further & your in more pain. Just see the Dr they didn't examine me I just told symptoms & was given cream... It really is that easy!
Just go see a doctor, you shouldn't be embaressed. If you actually read the article above it states that everyone gets them, even children. It also gives you other suggestions on how to treat them. Before I knew what it was I was also embaressed, until I told my friend and she told me she has had one and that everyone gets them. Just tell your parents, it's not like it it's an STD. :) Goodluck
my son was/is like that i took him to the doctors and he had an anal fissure (i think thats the right spelling) he got some cream and some drinks to soften his stools and it has helped loads no more itching or scratching or crying or going t he loo a million times a day cos thats what my son did aswel. i would take him they can sort it out its what there there for i didnt want to take my son but it got so bad he had to go and as for the penis my son still does that i think its just a boy thing lol but i hope he grows out of it soon lol take care hope you get it sorted

Hiya. I totally sympathize with you. My son Kaelan, was seen by our GP numerous times and then referred but we were given no answers in terms of diagnoses. All I was being told was that it was probably worms. Although after worming him twice, with no effect, we knew it had to be something else. It wasn't until we met Anouk that we finally got some answers. She knew what the problem was straight away...an anal fisure. My advise to you is to keep on at your GP and insist you be referred to investigate the possibility of a fisure. After our meeting with Anouk, Kaelan has been prescribed Xyloproct (a cream) to heal the tear and Movicol(a powder for oral solution) to keep his stools soft to avoid a reoccurence of anymore tearing. We were quite shocked to hear Kaelan had been suffering with constipation. As a family we enjoy a high fibre diet, eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. According to Miss Van der Avoirt some children's digestive systems are slower than others. It's just one of those things. Kaelan is getting on really well now. His had one little tear since but no way as bad as it was before. He just has to keep up the treatment and we have to make sure he drinks plenty of water, as this can also be a cause of constipation. I hope this has been of some help to you. Good luck with getting your son treated. Regards, Esther x
