A small scratch or tear in the anal canal is known as an Anal Fissure. It may occur in the mucosa

(a thin and moist tissue that lines the anus) when you pass very solid or large-sized stools. The

cut on the skin may cause minimal to extreme discomfort. One may experience itching,

burning, and unbearable pain while defecating, accompanied by bleeding and spasms in the

anal sphincter.

Some common causes of an anal fissure are:

- Childbirth

- Diarrhea

- Constipation

- Anal intercourse

- Passing hard and large stools


It is most common among kids, but people of any age may experience it. Anal fissures generally

heal by themselves. Although in some cases, the condition may worsen, causing infection and

inflammation in the anal canal. Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and ulcers in the anal

canal may also cause Anal Fissures. Recurring anal fissures, if left untreated, advance into the

development of the sentinel tag, which is extra skin growth.

It is essential for a person suffering from anal fissures to regulate their bowel movements. You

removed by surgery. But the most common side effect of undergoing surgery is bowel

incontinence. The patients cannot hold their stools and complain about the same.

aid can completely heal the wound without the use of surgical methods.


Kshar Karma therapy is an effective and efficient method wherein ointments are applied in the

fissure to promote healing. During the treatment at Akshar Hospital, there are multiple sittings

at weekly intervals. In the case of chronic anal fissures with a sentinel tag, Ksharsutra litigation

is used to remove the sentinel tag, followed by the Kshar Karma therapy.

Ayurvedic medicines such as Triphala Guggulu, Yashtimadhu Churna, Jatyadi Oil, and Gandhak

Rasayana promote healing without side effects. Focus on improving your food habits.
