Hi- I had multiple small anal fissures. First they put me on a nitroglycerin ointment (designed to relax the anal muscle just like it relaxes the heart muscle)and when I had a reaction to it, so, they put me on nifedipine ointment. It helped a bit, but not signficantly, so I stopped using it. I did not have any reactions to it. I had had a surgical sphincterotomy about 12 years ago and the rectal surgeon was afraid to do another one in fears I would leak!
