Chronic open severe anal fissure in 3 year old.

My son was born with spina bifida leaving him incontinent to bowel and bladder. He stools throughout the day, about 5 times I'd say. Not usually hard stools which makes his fissure unique. He has no anal tone at all and no innervation or spasms. This fissure started after a course of antibiotics for a UTI, that always flares up his bum. A small crack was seen and usually I can maintain that with powders and creams and it will heal, but for some reason it did not. We are now three months out and docs are talking surgery. I am going to try Manuka honey as that is one thing I have not done yet. An ND had him taking Phosphorus but it seemed he was getting very irritable and I took him off of it. I read here about Silicia (sp?) and wondering if that might be better for him? What other info is needed to help determine a possible remedy? Looking at the area I cannot fathom how it will come together on it's own but I want to avoid surgery and know that when supported properly the body has amazing abilities to heal itself. Pls advise!

16. What exactly is happening?: just not healing!

25. Current and previous remedies/medicines you are taking or took in the past?: bathe in tea tree oil, topical coconut oil, tried homeopathic phosphorus for a few weeks (seemed irritated on it so i took him off), since he is incontinent to bowel we started a bowel program but that seemed to make the fissure worse, he also takes probiotics, cranberry extract and supplements daily. i cover the area with stoma powder and sensicare cream daily.

Tell me about the pain?

Is there any pus, if yes, what color?

How do you know it is a fissure?

You may email me the pics?
nawazkhan last decade
Docs have diagnosed it as a fissure. It started out as a crack after a round of antibiotics from irritation in the gut. It's happened before and has always just healed back up but this time it just opened more and more. :( He has no sensation so it is not painful at this time (spina bifida, paralyzed waist down without sensation or movement). There is no pus at all. Post your email and I will do that.

Thanks for your patience. May God Bless You.

Please give your son Nitricum Acidum 30C, 1 drop mixed in 1 teaspoonful of mineral water, 3 times a day, for 4 days.

Report progress after 2 adys.

Many many prayers for the speedy recovery of The Beautiful Soul.

nawazkhan last decade
I have been told by an ND in Mexico that mineral water is one of the worst things u can drink....I have not researched on this. Can I use another kind?
valleygirl last decade
You may use spring water.
nawazkhan last decade
Unfortunately I cannot find this locally, will need to order online. Started Manuka honey today though topically.

The homeopathy is to be taken internally, right? Just making sure.

Thanks. I read just now that pellets contain lactose, with a severe dairy allergy does this affect? The liquid is more $$$ but of course if that is better, will go that route.
valleygirl last decade
Go with the liquid. Many homeopaths
prefer the liquid.
simone717 last decade
Ok, thanks.
valleygirl last decade

Thanks Simone.

Going on day 3 (took a while to get the stuff shipped!) Following as prescribed and just like last homepathic (phosphorus tabs) he seems to b having behavioral issues, more on edge and with temper, hard to take a nap. I thought last time it was because he is severely allergic to dairy and I saw the tabs contain lactose.

Anyways, regarding the fissure, we think it continues to look worse. I changed 2 bloody diapers today and I assume the juice he had in the morning made it too acidic because that was the only change, it was not bleeding before. However it looks like it's starting to channel a bit and that worries me. I will continue with the remedy for now and am seeking second opinions as well from the medical world. I am also still applying manuka honey when I can.
valleygirl last decade
Isn't it good that the blood is flowing to that area now?

Your boy needs Berberis Vulgaris Q to take care of bleeding.
nawazkhan last decade
I hadn't thought about it that way...this has happened before too though so it's not 'new' per se. I did remember though that I gave him liquid vitamin C last night and I bet that was the culprit more than the juice. Will see. It seems to have settled down now. I'll keep u posted. Really really need to see some kind of improvement soon.

Will do. Thanks for the tip.
valleygirl last decade
Trying...but there is SOOOO much to sift through! Is there a search somewhere that I am missing? The thing with my son's issue is that it is coupled with a rectal prolapse.
valleygirl last decade
I just wanted you to see how the process
works, watching what occurs after a remedy, then that tells the homeopath
what to do next, etc. It does take some
time , that's all.

Take care,
simone717 last decade
One must never self-prescribe as the homoeopathic remedies are very powerful with serious side effects.

Thanks Simone for helping this lady.
nawazkhan last decade
Ok. I guess since it was originally mentioned to take for 4 days that I would be seeing improvements by now. I do realize that I never mentioned that the doc is now saying he has a rectal prolapse. Which is evident when he is pushing because of the no muscle tone everything just looks like it's going to spill out. Hopefully this does not change anything with what I should do. Should I just continue a few more days with current treatment (which was 2 times today instead of 3, completely missed one, does that mess everything up?)
valleygirl last decade
Missing one dose is not going to mess
up anything-don't worry.

The homeopathy is a process especially
with the problems of your son, that
requires working with Nawaz over a
period of time and different remedies
as things change little by little and get
better and stay that way. It is going to
require patience and trust , and Nawaz'
patients do trust him for good reason.

I am sure as you keep going you will get
more comfortable with how all of this

Best to you and your family!
simone717 last decade
Just checking in. Still going with the remedy and doing my best to keep it three times a day (some days are harder than others...my motivation goes down because I get so desperate to see SOMETHING good). Just received an oil blend to try and will add that into the mix as well.
