Being a bottom can be brutal. Bottom shaming, the over attention and conscious eating, the hours of preparation, and the inevitable destroying of your bussy can play a total on your overall rectal health. If you aren’t careful, you can end up with painful side effects like anal fissures and hemorrhoids. Stop anal fissures before they even start with the right care for your booty hole.

An anal fissure is a small physical tear in the skin that lines the opening of your asshole. They can often cause massive discomfort, redness of the area, and light to mild bleeding when taking number twos. They are unsightly and painful problems that only go away with proper treatment and care. If you have an anal fissure or tear, its important to avoid butt sex play and be sensitive to the types of food you eat to allow comfortable bowel movements. 

But have no fear—anal fissures are not as uncommon as you may believe. Anal fissures are most often the direct result of passing large or hard stools during defecation. Sometimes, too rigorous of intercourse can lead to small tears and fissures. Anal fissures left untreated can take up to 6-8 weeks to heal and may require surgery—depending on the severity of the case.

If you somehow find yourself with an anal fissure, the best advice is to speak with your general practitioner. A doctor can explore the multiple treatment options that are right for you. Most likely, he’ll advise you to up the amount of water you intake every day. More water softens your stools and makes pooping easier on your whole body. Consuming a high fiber diet will help solidify, bulk, and soften your stools, further easing the process on your anus.  

Other topical options involve sitz baths for 15-20 minutes. This means filling your bathtub with warm water and epsom salt and sitting in it for the duration of time needed. This can help reduce swelling and speed up the healing process. Botox injections have been known to help in the relief process of anal fissures. Over the counter stool softener might also be an option, depending on your case. Abstaining from anal sex during the healing process will help your anal fissure from expanding or getting worse.

Otherwise, you still have the option of surgery. While most abrasions and wounds can be healed on their own, fissures often simply require the time it takes to heal torn soft tissue. But, in some rare cases, it might become necessary for you to consult a rectal surgeon. While this is often an unlikely scenario, it’s always good to consult an expert and specialist. Anal tumors, Crohn’s Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and anal tumors can have similar symptoms as anal fissures. So, you’ll want to get properly diagnosed by someone who is a professional and other than

An anal fissure is much more common than you’ve been lead to believe. Don’t fret too much about anal fissures but avoid being the Fissure King by simply eating a well-balanced, high in fiber diet, drinking more than enough water, and being gentle with your love box. The nicer you are to your booty hole, the less likely you are to have unwanted anal issues like anal fissures rear their ugly heads.
