Topical Treatment:

I've managed to have non-bulky, soft stool for close to a week by now and I no longer have intense level 8-9 pain. Before this week, a supplement (to treat hemorrhoid) I was taking contained psyllium husk and was making my stool soft but bulky, so morning BM was pure torture and pain level afterward would be 7-9, lasting pretty much all day. I had to take pain killers to manage (otherwise I'd lie in bed and whimper/scream).

For the past three days I'd say the most intense pain I felt was probably a 4, and the average pain level was maybe 2? And my pain free period is getting longer and longer so I no longer take pain killers.

My fissure is deep inside, not visible on the outside, so it's really hard to reach the site with my fingers or even with a dropper (with liquidy/oil topicals). Prescribed topicals (Anusol, nifedipine) didn't really do anything for me. I haven't used calmoseptine or pranicura.

For now, morning before BM, I use a honey/propolis based all-purpose-salve (from the cosmetic brand Farmacy) and petroleum jelly to lubricate. Through out the day I use three propolis/cocoa butter/other natural oil based suppositories that I bought from a bee farm/company in another state (I'm in the U.S.). I also use a Chinese herbal cream (called Ma Ying Long) once or twice a day (use the special cap to inject it into my rectum).

I have an arsenal of different types of suppositories and butt creams in my bathroom now, so on top of my standard regimen, I also sometimes use these other cream semi-randomly, to massage or lubricate with. The ones I use most besides my standard regimen is coconut oil and WiseWays Witch Hazel Salve.


I had a class yesterday and brought a sitting cushion with me. It helped a bit (but still doesn't make sitting completely comfortable). Weirdly, donuts don't work for me. I bought one right after I got my first fissure (which I healed from, before relapsing into this current 2nd one). When I sit on it, I still like I'm putting pressure on areas near the fissure.

So I’ve decided to go back to my previous routine using the coconut and essential oil suppositories followed by calmoseptine at night. The pranicura is just to painful at this point. I got immediate relief from the suppositories so I need to go with what feels better I think. There are some crazy ingredients in that Chinese remedy! Im a vegetarian so I’m gonna put that one off for now. Lol! I hope you are well!
