Possible fissure cure to try

Postby Bottom Gun » 18 Jul 2021, 11:34

I have suffered from an anal fissure for 13 years.

Have done sitz baths, used Boudreaux Butt Paste (a great help), and taken Muralax for several years (helps a lot).

NOW I BELIEVE I AM CURING THE FISSURE ITSELF!

This is what I do:

1. Clean area as best you can.
2. Apply a thimbleful of Vaseline. Try to get some inside.
3. Protect your underwear with a pad or paper napkin.
4. Repeat about 12 times daily.
5. Continue for 4 weeks.

I am in my 16th day of doing this and truly believe the fissure is healed. No more pain, no more blood. No more swelling. Note – I am continuing to take 1 tablespoon Muralax daily. I don’t need a difficult stool to ruin the progress I’ve made.

This is an adaptation of the technique my surgeon prescribed to heal the scar following a recent surgery to remove a small skin cancer on my neck. I thought – if it will work there, why not adapt this on other parts of the body.

This is definitely working for me. Vaseline and paper napkins are cheap.

I would try to avoid surgery or Botox treatment. I had hemorrhoid surgery many years ago, that recovery was difficult.

After my 4 weeks are over I intend to continue with the daily Muralax, I NEVER want another fissure in my life.

Let this forum know if this works for anyone else, and good luck!

Cant seem to find Muralax in the UK. Is it named differently here?

It is a powder that easily dissolves in water, orange juice, and other drinks. There are many other brands. It is often used as a prep for colonoscpys. When taken as a stool softener you take a much smaller dose daily.

Its called molaxole and movicol in NZ. Google Macrogol 3350 in the UK and see what it comes up with. Macrogol is the important ingredient i think.

Great news. Stay with it. My breakthrough day was day 5-6. What are you using as a stool softener? I'm still using Muralax but I agree that sometimes, like today, I have a hard BM and would like to avpi those if possible.

BTW, now that I am healed the occasionally difficult BM is no big deal anymore, but I'd still like to avoid them so please let me know what you use. Thanks
