Hi... I went through your clinical query... Add fiber to your diet. Eating about 25 to 30 grams of fiber a day can help keep stools soft and improve fissure healing. Fiber-rich foods include fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains.... Drink adequate fluids. Fluids help prevent constipation.... Exercise regularly... Avoid straining during bowel movements. Straining creates pressure, which can open a healing tear or cause a new tear....
