Fissure and other stuff...
« on: October 23, 2012, 06:23:43 AM »
Ok this is really upsetting me. I got an anal fissure soon after the birth of my daughter. I also got a large skin tag after my 3rd degree tear healed up. Ive been back and forth to the drs for 7 months now and all they perscribe is some cream.

Ive been researching and all i can seem to find to treat anal fissures is to drink plenty of water, soften stools, high fiber etc all of which ive been doing. The pain is so great though i avoid eating much and ive lost a lot of weight  :-[. You can get surgery but the dr keeps telling me to have creams and see what happens. Surgery is too risky he says.

The skin tag is very uncomfortable when with im with my husband  :'( because it gets pulled.

Im also concerned because i got constipation when pregnant and that got me thinking today... what if i got pregnant and these areas are not healed yet?

Is there any herbs or homemade treatment i can take?

God Bless

I think you would find a squatting position helpful when emptying your bowels.  See this site for more information.  Another site that I have found very insightful is Gut Sense by Konstantin Monastyrsky.  He is not a doctor, but his approach is intriguing.

I don't see why they couldn't remove the skin tag with a small laser.  A laser allows for minimal bleeding and quick healing.

Have you tried any herbal remedies for hemmorhoids?  i would recommend Horse Chestnut.  This stuff is awesome.  It reduces the inflammation that causes this sort of problem.  I've found relief in as little as 3 days of taking the recommended dosage.  I know this is not immediate, but it's lasting.

For the skin itself, I would recommend Eden Salve or Aloe vera (make sure it's pure).  This will help to heal the tears when the horse chestnut brings down the inflammation.

If you are still constipated, then I would look into a good cal/mag supplement.  If it's not working, then you might need to try a different brand.  I am currently using eggshells in my coffee and a crazy-do-it-yourself remedy for the magnesium and it's made a world of difference.  Here's the recipe if you're interested.

NOTE:  it mentions in this article to further dilute your concoction in 3 to 4 literes of water.  I don't do this, I just drink the mixture straight - about 2 to 4 oz daily.  I got the information from another gal on WTM and I'm so thankful.  it's awesome and cheap.
  My favorite herb book!!

I know that this is late and I am sorry that I did not see it earlier.

DO NOT use cortisone creams or steroid creams in that area of your body. I did for several years for a fissure at Dr.'s recommendation and it has ruined my skin. After over a year of prescribing me more and stronger causing me to become allergic to them ruining my liver and hormones my dr. sent me to a specialist that said I should have never used steroid cream in that area of my body. When I get a fissure now I use a cream I made up. It is very easy

Coconut oil
Bees wax
Horse tail

I was is a desperate situation when I decided to not listen to a Dr. again over this. They really did me in. I will never be the same but now I am much better than ever before listening to them. This happened to me after the birth of my last baby as well. Drink plenty of water. keep stools soft.
