I was diagnosed with an anal fissure 3 weeks ago. The Doctor prescribed Destin, Stool Softeners, and Sitz Baths. The problem however lies in when I pass a stool and I clean the area, I think I am making the fissure worse with the way I clean it as I push hard with the tissue paper, because if I don't the area doesn't seem to be clean. I've tried using the preparation H wet wipes containing Witch Hazel and Aloe, but they haven't helped, and the doctor actually told me that the preparation H may be making the fissure worse. I asked a pharmacist about this and she also agreed and said the best course of action is a Sitz bath, but I can't just be taking baths all day, is there anything else I can do?
