I have the same problem….. This darn fissure comes and then *almost* goes but never completely leaves. During its bad times it bleeds and hurts so bad! Especially when the surgeon takes a lot at my abscess and pulls at it by mistake! Don’t they know how much they hurt!?
I use these wipes called rectogesic instead of toilet paper. I wish I’d known about them when I first got crohn’s – I don’t know about you but I suspect TP is a big culprit for giving me a fissure! Rectogesic medicated wipes can be used for hemmies and are perfect for pregnancy (according to the packet) http://www.rectogesic.com.au/
I’m really not sure but I think remi would be great for healing fissures – it seems to be great for eveyrth8ing! After 3 yrs with an awful GI who only offered me pentasa, I am finally on my way and have been prescribed imuran and am applying for an accompanying drug. Yay! Now I finally have hopes for me abscess/fistula/fissure!
Your surgeon and GI should take it seriously because they are so very painful. I had mine looked at yesterday and my GI described it as a ‘deep’ fissure. Boo.

Hey guys, are you referring to my post? I’m not sure….
The IBD gastro I saw yesterday said I had a deep fissure which is up above my butt crack…. So they can appear there. I haven’t heard of the creams you speak of but I try and do salt baths whenever I can. Hopefully these news meds might help with clearing up all the problems down there
