How Do You Know If A Fissure Is Healing?

During your Anal Fissure homeopathic treatment there will be some signs to let you know that the fissure is healing.

After successfully healing my anal fissure at home without the need for surgery, I want to share with you the signs that your fissure is healing.

Remember that fissures take time to heal so don’t stop treatment too early just because your anal fissure treatment at home seems to be working.

Fissures can take several months to completely heal so don’t stop too early.

So, how do you know if a fissure is healing?

The number one sign that an anal fissure is starting to heal is that the pain you are experiencing during and after a bowel movement is starting to go away and lessen in the length of time it lasts.

Pain Indicators That Your Anal Fissure Is Starting To Heal

  • The pain you experience during a bowel movement in less than the time before.
  • The pain that you experience after a bowel movement does not last as long as the time before.
  • The overall level of pain you experience before, during and after a bowel movement is less than the day before.

The pain you are experiencing every day is the best gauge you have to determine if your anal fissure is healing or not.

You will want to monitor your level of pain each day during your anal fissure home treatment to know if your body is healing.

Your overall pain level is the most important indicator that your anal fissure is starting to heal.

Feel better knowing that the anal fissure home treatment plan is working when your level of pain is going down.

There are several other important indicators your anal fissure is starting to heal that you will want to be aware of also.

Along with your level of pain lessening each day, be on the lookout for these additional signs below.

Any itching and burning at the anus is starting to go away.

It is very common to experience an itching and burning sensation at the anus when you have a fissure.

If you are using the H-Fissures Oil to heal your fissure like I did, you may feel this burning sensation for a little while after applying the oil.

This is quite common.  It happened to me during my treatment, but will go away as the fissure heals so don’t get too worried about it.

I want you to be aware of this so you don’t think something is wrong and stop using the oil.  That is the last thing you want to do.

Please push past this difficult point in the healing process and continue using the oil.

I promise you the itching and burning will go away.

You start to see less blood when you wipe after a bowel movement.

I would see bright red blood spots on the toilet paper when I wiped after a bowel movement.

It was very scary the first time I saw the blood, but I later learned that this is a common symptom of anal fissures.

Since a fissure is an open wound on your anus it is very likely that it will bleed slightly after each bowel movement.   This is very common.

Keep in mind that a fissure is a cut on your body and every time your have a bowel movement that cut unfortunately can re-open.

What I started to notice as the fissure healed was the amount of blood I saw after wiping was becoming less and less.

This is also a very good indication that your fissure is healing.

Just make sure that you do not wipe too hard after a bowel movement as you do not want to re-injure the cut and have it open up again.

This daily battle between your body trying to heal the wound and your bowel movements causing the fissure to re-open are why it takes so long for the fissure to heal.


Keep in mind that you will have setbacks during your treatment and some days will be better or worse than others with the level of pain you experience.  

This is normal and to be expected.  Each time you have a bowel movement you are re-injuring your fissure which is why the healing process takes so long.

You just have to hang in there and stay diligent with your anal fissure home treatment plan.

Consistancy is the key to healing your fissure.

Dave’s Daily Regimen Recommendation For Your Fissure Home Treatment 

Apply Oil 3 Times Each Day

You cannot miss an application of the H-Fissures Oil.
Each time you miss applying the oil the healing process is delayed and it will take your body longer to heal.
Just DO NOT forget to apply oil!

Keep Your Anus Clean

I know it hurts to wipe back there.  Trust me, I Know!
Use an Unscented Baby Wipe after a bowel movement.
Afterwards, dab dry with soft toilet paper.

Do Some Light Exercise Everyday

In order to heal you must increase the blood flow in your body.
It is the increased blood flow to your anus that helps it heal.
Walking is a great way to get some light exercise.

Do A Sitz Bath 1-2 Times Each Day

Soak in a tub of lukewarm water for 10-15 minutes.
This helps to boost blood flow during the healing process.
It will help to soothe the irritation too.

Drink Water To Stay Hydrated

It is VERY IMPORTANT that you drink plenty of water everyday while healing.
You must keep your body hydrated.
Drink a minimum of 64 ounces of water each day.

Eat Foods High In Fiber

You need 28 grams of fiber in your daily diet.
Fruits, Vegetables, Legumes, Nuts & Seeds are great examples of high fiber foods to eat.

Keep Your Stools Soft Everyday

What helped the most was keeping my stool soft everyday so the bowel movement would not hurt as much.
I also avoided constipation so I would not strain during a bowel movement.

Use Positive Affirmations To Promote Self-Healing

Stay Positive and Assure yourself that your body is going to heal.
