An anal fissure, 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 symptoms are a sharp pain in the anus during bowel movements or when touched.
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.
