What is Fissure?
This is a cut (ulcer or
Laceration) inside the anus. The usual cause is trauma to
the anus because of a strained bowel movement, hard bowel
movement, or high internal sphincter tone (the area that allows
stool to pass stays tense, obstructing proper passage).
Severe tearing pain during a bowel movement
Throbbing pain in anus following a bowel movement
Blood on toilet paper or around the bowel movement
Constant irritation from stool in diapers of babies or constant
wiping in all others.
Scratching due to infections (e.g., pinworm) or skin conditions
(e.g., dry skin, Eczema).
High internal sphincter tone (explained above).
