Ruth Devine July 20, You've had the baby and everything's going along swimmingly, despite the leaky boobs and itchy stitches. But wait, what's this? A super sore bum too? Welcome to the world of anal fissures. If pregnancy and birth weren't uncomfortable enough, let us talk about anal fissures. Just as the word episiotomy can make even the most experienced mother wince, so can the mere mention of the words anal and fissure in the same sentence.
What is an anal fissure?

Posted 11 years ago , 4 users are following. I have always suffered with an irritable bowel , and from time to time with this came small doses of hemroids which was unpleasant but with a few lotions would subside after a few days. But about a year ago i developed symtoms which felt very very uncomfatable , i started getting a strong pressure in my anus and with this a very irritating itch would occur around my anus also. I went to the doctor diagnosing my self with what i thought was just hemroids , so backward and forwards i went to my GP getting all kinds of creams and ointments for hemroids which didn't do a single thing to reduce the pressure and pain i was in. After a 5 months my GP finally referred me to hospital to have flexible signoscopy or something like that to see if there was anything else causing the pain. This procedure was so painful due to my anus feeling like it was an open wound , but i grit my teeth and bared the pain. The results of this test showed i was suffering with multiple anal fissures.
anal fissure, 1 year of absolute hell!!!!!!!!!!!
The inner bark of slippery elm is used as a nutritious gruel or topically as a poultice. The mucilage soothes and nourishes the mucous membranes, speeds wound healing and lowers pain — making it an excellent candidate for lower digestive tract disorders. The mucilage content of slippery elm is also useful topically on the skin. This herb makes for a great poultice for inflamed, damaged, or irritated skin. The nutritious powder is placed in water to expand and become a thick paste, which is then applied to the surface of the skin and wrapped in a cloth or towel.
