Hi everybody!
Great to see this forum.
I was having a fissure for almost 5 years and than I found a way to keep it closed for almost 1,5 years.
One week ago it reoccured :(
To keep the spasm down and the wound clean it took a long journey to find out how.
After BM I clean the fissure using my shower, rinse it with saltwater afterwards, clean it with my shower again, apply medihoney woundgel and put a cotton wool plug on top.
This I do 3 times a day in order to keep the infection away.
In addition I consume lineseeds and psyllium seed husks.
I will keep you updated.
Will my butt ever work again or do you think this condition can always reoccur?
Cheers
Booyah

Hi,

Welcome, and thank you sharing you story. How are you doing nowadays? Is that better?
Fissures can occur and they usually do, so try to keep the routine

Hello,

I would also like some feedback on your healing. I am thinking of ordering Medihoney but I could not find a lot of reviews for anal fissures on their website. Did it work for you?

Hi there,
my fissure is closed but the scar tissue is still infected. -I am not done yet :( Trying hard to get rid of that infection. BM is not a problem but during the day the scar is still hurting every once in a while. I am looking for a strong ointment against the infection plus I will start rinsing the scar with clean water 6 times a day if possible. This condition is like a dark shadow ruining my life. Hopefully, it will not take many years to disappear...

I definitely understand how it feels like a dark cloud that will never leave- I too want my life back!! But it helps when I remember that it is healing even when we aren't thinking about it. Have you gone to the doctors about the infection?

I switched from using Medihoney woundgel to pure Medihoney. It is really expensive though. I used it for a week & then I stopped for 5 days in order to give the scar some time to calm down. So far my fissure is closed an no infection any more :) -Life is bright again.- I still rinse the scar with clean water twice a day and I will use medihoney for another week just to make sure...

When my fissure reoccured I was about to go on vacation. While on vacation I did not get better. The fissure actually got much bigger (at least 1 cm). Getting rid of it took a lot of effort and dedication. The cotton wool plug in addition with medihoney and the rinsing is very much responsible for the healing. -Now I get on with my life.

Thank you!! Do you mind providing the link you use and how you apply the medihoney. I know you stated you use a cotton wool plug but I am not sure what this is or how to use it?

Medihoney is actually manuka honey. It is especially made for chronic wounds. I applied it using a finger. The cotton wool is very important to keep the fissure dry & clean. First you take a small square of the cotton wool (2,5 inch x 2,5 inch). Then you take a corner of the square and twist it in order to get a cigarette shaped plug with the square still connected to it. Use your finger to put the plug on top of the fissure.
