An anal fissure, fissure in Ano or rectal fissure is a break or tear in the skin of the anal canal
Superficial or shallow anal fissures look much like a paper cut, and may be hard to detect upon visual inspection, they will generally self-heal within a couple of weeks. However, some anal fissures become chronic and deep and will not heal. The most common cause of non-healing is spasming of the internal anal sphincter muscle which results in impaired blood supply to the anal mucosa. The result is a non-healing ulcer, which may become infected by fecal bacteria
After a gap is closed it takes another 6 weeks to 3 months before a gap is completely healed.
Until that time, the gap easily opens again, so that the wound returns again and again.
Why not treat it preventive.
