Fissures are a small split or tear in the skin. Anal fissures are small splits or tears in the mucosal lining of the lower rectum and can range from involving only the epithelium to encompassing the entire thickness of the anal mucosa. Anal fissures can be acute or chronic. The goal of treatment is to relieve pain, constipation , and spasms, as well as reduce the resting internal anal sphincter pressure so that the fissure can fully heal. Therapy for anal fissures ranges from conservative measures to pharmacologic treatments to surgical interventions.
A perineal tear can happen when you deliver your baby. It is a tear to your perineum say "pair-uh-NEE-um" , which is the area between your vagina and anus. After delivery, the doctor or midwife usually closes the perineal tear with stitches. The stitches will dissolve in 1 to 2 weeks, so they will not need to be removed.
