Avoid straining during bowel movements. Straining creates pressure, which can open a healing tear or cause a new tear. Laxatives are used as needed to maintain regular bowel movements. Mineral oil may be added to facilitate passage of stool without as much stretching or abrasion of the anal mucosa, but it is not recommended for indefinite use. Sitz baths after bowel movements and as needed provide significant symptomatic relief because they relieve some of the painful internal sphincter muscle spasm...other modalities are consists of intra-anal application of 0.4% nitroglycerin (NTG; also called glycerol trinitrate) ointment directly to the internal sphincter..botulinum toxin usage...in diet add fibres...Fiber-rich foods include fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains. You also can take a fiber supplement.. if no improvements surgery is the choice... Consult nearest surgeon they will help you
