I didn't want to jinx myself but the burning pain has decreased (not completely gone yet)... The irritation is what I have noticed more in the last few days (I don't know what that really means, healing but what if there was no fissure?) I definitely recommend trying Botox since I have had some improvement on pain just 6 days after Botox.

That sounds good. Not all the way there, but on your way.

I've been doing the Nifedipine, coconut oil, zinc and the warm bath and that seems to be helping. Working from home when not traveling and that has reduced the stress level. I might be doing a bit better -- maybe I'm healing? I don't know - after almost 12 months, can that be?

Good luck and keep us posted. Life must be better :^)

Lee,

But if you tried that and it still has not completely healed, I think it's time to move to the next step...

Alyssa, it's great news you had your botox! Maybe try not to be too active for a while? It's so tempting to start running around when you feel better, but i bet you need to take it easy for a while. I know I tended to overdo it when I first started to feel better and my bottom always took its revenge the next day! Look after yourself; you deserve it.
Nifedipine/lidocaine, no help
Diltiazem, effective, but caused major rash
Nitroglycerine, effective.
Topical estrogen for final healing.
Gentle heat to bottom - pain relief, muscle relaxant
Kondremul mineral oil
Time - lots of time.
Status - Healed!
