I'm no doctor, but it does sound like your fissures could be reappearing. It's not that uncommon for a relapse if you're having constipation issues and aren't getting enough fiber. It especially makes sense if the area stings when being washed or wiped.
Most times fissures will end up healing on their own over time. In the meantime, it helps to take stool softneners and sit in warm baths - sitz salt baths are proven to help.
Again, I am not a doctor, but given that fissures are tears in the anus, I wonder if Neosporin would be safe to use to help speed along the process. Anyone know?
