... I had fissure once and it got cured. But it has come up again and I have? pain as well as irritation after bowel movement. I'm using shield ointment, bisacodyl(stool softener) and metrogyl 400 (for infection). But bisacodyl causes diarrhea and leads to irritation. Pls help me. I'd like to cure it naturally or by pills and dont want surgery. how long will it take to get cured permanently without recurrence?
