In So Much Pain Right Now

Recommended Posts

I don't think I glutened myself, b/c that is when I usually get fissures, but I've been very constipated, and I think that may have caused this one. Anyway, what's the best remedy for these? It's been almost half an hour since I went to the bathroom, and it still burns. Epsom/baking soda bath? Hemm cream? Neosporin? Witch hazel? What helps for you? And helps heal??? Thanks in advance ;)

I used to take warm baths every night when I used to have fissures. I didn't put anything in the bath, just water. The doctor prescribed some medication that I used internally, but I can't remember the name of it and I'm not really sure if it helped. I haven't had a fissure since being gluten-free. I hope you start to feel better.

My son has the same problem when he is constipated. The pain is terrible for him and I believe he feels a throbbing because in his words, "it feels like there is a party going on in my butt and the music is too loud". My guess is he feels a pulsing or a throb. I always put him in a warm tub and I also give him some motrin to help with the pain. I do not have celiac but also had problems with chronic fissures as a young adult. I do not remember which medication I was given but I did have to have surgery twice to correct the problem. I also do not think wichazel (sp?) would be a good idea, I would imagine it would burn. Good luck.

I used to have horrible fissures about 7 years ago, back when I used to get constipated all the time. I used Anusol, which helped with the pain and helped heal (somewhat)--unfortunately, the only thing that helps heal them is time. I also increased my fiber to help me "go" more to avoid the constipation. You could also try taking a stool softener until it heals.
