Your diet plays a very important role in getting things under control, for major relief, while you are suffering from anal fissures.

Anal fissures usually go off in about six weeks, after which, you can make some changes in your diet for its prevention.

In this blog, we’ll discuss what foods should be avoided and what foods are good while suffering from anal fissures. You might not completely prevent anal fissures only with diet, but it can help you get more comfortable while the anal fissure heals.

Foods to Avoid in Fissure Treatment

Most importantly, avoid spicy foods. We know the being in Hyderabad, it could be quite a difficult task, but do avoid it. Spicy food can make things worse as it burns the cut area during a bowel movement, making the symptoms worse.

The following are the list of foods to avoid during anal fissure:

  • Spicy biryanis
  • Curries with lots of masalas
  • Foods with chilly powder
  • Habanero, jalapeno or any other kind of hot peppers
  • Hot sauces
  • Red meat
  • Fast food
  • Cheese
  • Processed foods
  • Frozen foods
  • Pre-prepared foods
  • Tortilla chips
  • Nuts
  • Popcorn

You should also avoid any other foods that could cause constipation, as it could put added pressure on the anal canal which will extend the healing process of anal fissures.

Food for Fissure Treatment

Before we get into this, please understand that eating certain foods alone may not completely heal anal fissures, but you can reduce the pressure on anal sphincter and promote the natural healing process. The best thing to do is to eat plenty of fibre content foods, which softens the stool and makes the bowel movement much easier.

Here are some foods with high fibre content:

  • Beans
  • Peas
  • Lentils
  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Brown rice
  • Berries
  • Quinoa
  • Leafy vegetables like spinach
  • Flaxseed
  • Sweet potato
  • Broccoli
  • Avocado
  • Olive oil

Drinking plenty of water will also help accelerate the natural healing process of anal fissures. Staying hydrated means less constipation, which in turn reduces the bowel movement strain, which is a major cause for anal fissures. Ideal intake of water should be a minimum of 8 to 10 glasses a day.

Along with diet-control, soak your butt and hips in warm water (not hot) several times every day for better results and increased relief.
