Anal Fissure- The Condition is Treatable

Talking about the anal fissure, it is characterized by a small tear or cut in the anus lining. The cracks that developed on the skin can lead to severe pain. Besides, after the bowel movements, you can face bright red-coloured bleeding. Sometimes, the condition can be severe enough to expose the deep muscle tissue. Even though the condition is not serious, however, you should not avoid this and consult professional anal fissure doctors as soon as possible.
The condition can affect young children, infants, and adults. As the constipation condition is a quite common issue among all, anal fissure also has become very common. In general, the tear in the anus lining heals within six to eight weeks on its own. If the condition persists for more than eight weeks, you should consider the condition as chronic.
