An anal fissure is a small tear or crack in the lining of the anus, the opening through which stool
is expelled from the body. It is characterised by a burning pain, itchy sensation and rectal bleeding
during and after a bowel movement. This condition affects all age groups but tends to be found when
constipation and diarrhoea are frequent.
By itself, anal fissures are not serious and usually heal on their own within a few weeks. However, more chronic and serious cases may require medicines and even surgery to treat. Persistent anal fissures may also be an indication of an underlying illness such as inflammatory bowel diseases, cancer or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
