Anal fissure is caused when the thin tissue tears up, this tissue is known as mucosa. Basically, it heals itself within 4 weeks but if it extends, this can be considered chronic and should be diagnosed by a doctor. There are medical conditions like constipation, hard stools, inflammatory bowel disease can cause a small crack in the lining which will lead to bleeding during or after bowel movements which is accompanied by an intense pain. If you consume a proper anal fissure diet will relieve the pain and help the tear quickly and this will avoid the surgery. But if the anal fissure is getting out of hand then the only solution is going for anal fissure surgery.

The main element in your diet should be fibres. Eating foods rich in fibre can help to improve the constipation and will smoothen the bowel movements.

  • Red chillies: The compounds which are present in red chilli react with the enzymes of the digestive system and it results in the production of a lot more stomach acid, which will increase the pain
  • Garlic: Garlic is also known for increasing the temperature of the body. This will have bad effects on piles. When you have fissures, it’s good to stay from garlic
  • Mixed pulses: Mixed dal, which contains grain like rajma dal, sabu dal or urad dal are bad for fissure. If you consume them, they will increase the pain.
