    I have not had anything like this but I am pretty sure that if you have pus coming out there is an infection or you might have a fistula.

    SO sorry you have to go thorugh this...I hope you feel better..

    Here are some suggestions I have for you to help you through:

    1. Try somee zinc oxide in the form of calmoseptine which has menthol to soothe the area down there as well. Calmoseptine can be bought at almost any local drugstore and can be bought online too.

    2. Try squatting when going on the toilet instead of sitting. This is a much  helathier position and the poop sometimes will just slide out,  no pushing or straining involved.

    3. I would definately take a fiber supplement, specifically metamucil  is what I take evveryday,  in ordr to allow your stools to be soft and to allow them to pass thorugh easily. THis being said, with any fiber supplemetn, you must drink lots of water when using them, or they will not work veffectively. Also, do not take too much as too much fiber can irritate your bowels on the way  out and diarreah actually does worse down there.

    5. I would recommend getting a sphicteronomy surgery if htings dont get better. I waited it out, gave up, had the surgery, and was able to heal within about two weeks. I had a chronic fissure, so I knew where you are ocming from with v all the pain and discomfort.

    Besides that, I applaud you very much  for going to work. Try listening to music to distract your mind a bit, especially when going to the bathroom. If you are in writing pain, distract yourself with a movie or TV show right after. Also, to prevent myself from screaming and from putting more stress in the area down  there, i bit down on a washcloth in order to make the tensions with my teeth instead of my sphicter muscle.

    Good luck, and we are all here to help you and care about ho you are doing so let us know. I really hope you get better soon!

      You also may want to ask him about using coconut oil. I've heard some good reviews on that too!

      Good Luck!

      I would ask your doctor about the donut seat cushion....I used one of those when I thought I had a hemmroid, and  then I found out I had a fissure.....I don't know if the donut cushion is good or bad, but if it giving you relief I would keep using it...but I would still check with your doctor just in case to make sure you are not doing more harm to the region....
