An anorectal stricture is a condition where there is a narrowing of the rectum and anal canal. A person can develop a single stricture or multiple strictures. Strictures are the result of benign or malignant processes. Common reasons for anorectal stricture include inflammatory bowel disease, chronic inflammation in the rectum (proctitis) or ulceration in the rectum. These pathologies can lead to scarring (on healing) and lead to the narrowing of the anorectal canal. Homeopathic medicines for anorectal stricture work in cases of mild to moderate strictures. These help with the symptomatic management of the problem. Thiosinaminum, Alumina, and Nitric Acid are the top homeopathic medicines used to treat anorectal stricture. Strictures usually form due to scarring following trauma or surgical procedures in the rectum or anus. This usually follows from procedures like piles, skin tags, anal fissures, and anal fistula. Chronic diarrhea, venereal diseases, anorectal carcinoma/tumors and radiation treatment for pelvic tumors can also lead to strictures. An anorectal stricture can also be congenital, i.e., present since birth.
