I understand that fissures in this area can take weeks to heal, but every time defecation occurs, the old wound is opened again. The only way to avoid reopening the wound is to not defecate and not eat, but it's impossible to avoid eating for weeks.

Does anyone know if there anything that can be done to heal anal fissures and ensure that the problem doesn't come back? Is there some dietary change, lifestyle change, or some kind of medicine or cream that will help the fissure heal and strengthen the tissues so the problem doesn't come back? Thank you for your time.
