Homeopathy medicine for Anal fissure ,anal fistura and piles
Anal fissures are an unnatural crack or tear in the anus, usually extending from the anal opening and located posteriorly in the midline. This location is probably because of the relatively unsupported nature of the anal wall in that location.
Symptoms-The symptoms of anal fissure include:
- Pain during, and even hours after, defecation.
- Visible tear in the anus
- Blood on the stool or on toilet paper or toilet bowl
- Burning, possibly painful itching
- A tearing sensation during defecation, sometimes described as "like passing glass".

Platina has fissure of the anus, with crawling and itching every evening. Severe pain after each stool with burning and tenesmus lasting a long time.

Collinsonia is indicated in obstinate cases of haemorrhoids which bleed almost incessantly. It is of special use in females with inertia of the rectum and a congestive tendency to the pelvic organs. It suits pregnant women who suffer from piles, and pruritus may be a marked symptom. The indicating symptoms are chiefly a sensation of sticks in the rectum, with constipation from inertia of the lower bowel. It is especially applicable to heart pains resulting from a suppression of a habitual haemorrhoidal flow. It is somewhat similar to Nux, but is a far more useful remedy.

An anal fistula is an abnormal connection between the epithelialised surface of the anal canal and (usually) the perianal skin
Anal fistulae originate from the anal glands, which are located between the two layers of the anal sphincters and which drain into the anal canal. If the outlet of these glands becomes blocked, an abscess can form which can eventually point to the skin surface. The tract formed by this process is the fistula.
Symptoms-Anal fistulae can present with many different symptoms:
- Discharge - either bloody or purulent.
- Pruritus ani - itching
- Systemic symptoms if abscess becomes infected
Abscesses can recur if the fistula seals over, allowing the accumulation of pus. It then points to the surface again, and the process repeats.
