WASH for Anal Fissures

You can remember the four steps to relief from anal fissures by the acronym WASH:

Warm water bath or shower after bowel movements.
Analgesics, preferably not aspirin, to control pain. The herbal treatment is oil of clove cream.
Stool softeners such as over-the-counter Surfak for make passing stools easier, and
High-fiber diet to make stools bulkier but lighter.
