Hello doctor,

I am a 58-year-old male. I had passed hard stool two weeks back, after which I suffered from severe pain in the anus, which continued for a week before I consulted the doctor, who prescribed ineffective medicines. My pain reduced gradually as I was on painkillers, but I suffered from a persistent burning sensation in the anus. My stool is soft now, and I have experienced bleeding only twice initially, but the burning sensation is intolerable. What do I do?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

These are the typical symptom of anal fissure. It would be helpful to drink plenty of liquids; fluids in your system can make stools softer and easier to pass. Be sure to drink more when the weather gets warmer and become physically active. Try to eat fiber-rich foods like whole grains, fresh vegetables, and fruits to prevent constipation boil moong dal in water, add some jaggery to it and drink the soup on an empty stomach. Also, it would be helpful if you drink coconut milk every day. I have suggested a few ayurvedic medicines to cure this issue for two months.

1. Pilex tablet ((Azadirachta Indica, Bauhinia Variegata, Bauhinia Variegata, Berberis Aristata, Cassia Fistula, Commiphora Wightii, Emblica Officinalis, Mesua Ferrea, Shilajit, Terminalia Bellirica, and Terminalia Chebula) three times a day after food orally.

2. Point capsule (Nirvasa Shilajjit and capsule) twice a day after food. (if there is bleeding).

3. Pilex ointment (Lajjalu and Yashad Bhasma) for external application.

4. Abhayarishtam (Haritaki, Vidanga, Madhuka Kusuma) two teaspoons twice a day after food.

Thank you.

Kind regards.
