Anal Fissure

Anal fissure is a small cut or tear in the lining of anal canal which most commonly occur while passing hard stools during a bowel movement. It causes severe cutting, tearing and burning type of pain particularly after defecation and also often shows streak of blood on the stool surface. It usually extends from the anal opening and is located posteriorly in the midline.

Anal fissures are mainly classified as acute and chronic. Acute fissures show severe pain, spasm of anal canal and resistance to touch with bleeding and may heal by itself within 6 to 8 weeks. Chronic fissures may only cause mild pain but may take longer time to heal which often demands medical intervention.

Causative Factors:

  • Low fibre Intake.
  • Constipation
  • Irregular Food Habits.
  • Diseases Involving Intestine
  • Low Fluid Intake
  • Pregnancy


Ayurveda mentions anal fissure as guda parikarthika which occurs due to improper food and habits, leading to poor internal metabolism or as a complication of some panchakarma procedures which leads to tearing of anal canal.


As per Ayurveda, due to the triggering factors, pitta dosha vitiates and develops indigestion in the patient. This causes vitiation of apana vata and its functions which leads to fissure causing severe pain in the anal region along with severe spasm of anal sphincter.


It is very important to regulate the bowel habits properly and so Ayurveda mainly highlights the need of correcting digestion and metabolism so as to prevent constipation.
