Update,,I saw the colon rectal surgeon today.He said he wouldnt even consider a surgery for the fissure.with of the constant diarrhea.The recovery would be really bad.The nitro paste does help the fissure. so he said I was very lucky to have found something that would help some.Since I have used other meds and they didnt help.The nitro can be safely used for long term. There really wasnt anything else he could suggest. since I have tried so many things.This was a colon rectal doctor in Charlotte, N.C.He basically said,,God, Help me,,if I have to have surgery on the 1/3 intestines I have left. That I am a high risk, and he wouldnt even do surgery. He would send me to MUSC at Charleston, S.C. I have spent a Lot of time there, already. As for the anal itching,keep it clean, dry and slightly acidic. Use Calmoseptine Cream. Avoid excessive use of soap in that area. cause it changes the normal acidity of the skin. Use Cetaphil cleanser.Items in the diet that may cause itching are coffee,tea, sodas,choclate, tomato products, citrus, beer,nuts, popcorn,and milk. And Stress can contribute to anal itching.
