hello...
Anal cut??? are you talking about anal fissure??

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Avoiding sharp foods that may not be well-digested i.e., nuts, popcorn, chips. Increase liquid intake, and, at times, take stool softeners.. Sitz baths- essentially soaking in a tub of warm water. Sitz baths are encouraged, particularly after bowel movements, to relax the spasm, to increase the flow of blood to the anus, and to clean the anus without rubbing the irritated anoderm. use local anaesthetic creams like xylocaine- lox gelly recommended especially prior to a bowel movement to reduce the pain of defecation. Often, a small amount of a steroid is combined in the anesthetic cream to reduce inflammation. The use of steroids should be limited to two weeks because longer use will result in thinning of the anoderm (atrophy), which makes it more susceptible to trauma. Have fibre rich foods..

in addition to all the above, no straining at stools. try stool softener n sitz bath fr sure. hope ur gynec is monitoring.

No constipation, no bleeding, I could easily get the bowel movements but, still I dint understand the cause for the cut(just like crack at the anal) passing stools is not a problem. Getting up n sleeping is making  me very difficulty.. Any ointment preferable for this?
