Fissure prevention

I am coming across many cases of piles/fissures these days. Wanted to know what are the preventive measures for it. I have been staying away from home for last 14 yrs now n have to eat out a lot of time ( spicy food n all which i don prefer but don have an option). What care can I take in my diet to prevent this?

Fissure is a cut at the anal verge. It usually occurs with constipation or straining.  It sometimes occurs with colitis.
So try high fibre diet and keep the stools soft and easy to pass. If dietary changes aren't possible use fibre supplements.
However if you already have loose stools see a doctor to rule out colitis
