Fissure while nursing

I had a baby about two months ago. About 6 weeks postpartum I developed an Anal Fissure. Currently I have been taking a stool softener for about two weeks now and have recently started eating more fiber. None of this seems to be working. Last week it did seem that it was getting better, but my IBS flared up (diahrrea)and now I am back to square one. It seems worse now that it did before. I do not have very much bleeding just alot of pain while having a bowel movement. It does not seem to hurt much afterwards.

I did a search on the forums and found a ton of info. But I am currently nursing so, I am usure on what is safe to take. Can someone help me find something to take while breastfeeding?

Thank You,

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
If it is only a stool softner that you want you can use Nat Phos 6x after lunch and dinner and this should help.

You will have to keep bacteria away from the Fissure to enable it to heal and I recommend that you use an antibiotic ointment like Polyfax which you will insert directly into the anus after every bowel movement (BM) on your finger which is encased in a Finger Cote or if not available the finger cut off from a rubber surgical glove.

You can also take Arnica 30c in the wet dose to help in the healing process. This is quite safe when breast feeding.

For this problem homeopathic remedy nitric acid 30c is used.The dose is 5 drops of the medicine mixed in a little water for three times a day for three days.

Post back the progress.

I note that you have prescribed Nitric Acid 30c to be taken 3 times daily in the wet dose.

I do hope that you have considered that the patient is breast feeding her baby and although I am informed that Homeopathic remedies are usually considered safe for nursing mothers I have never used Nit Ac. In the case of Arnica I have used it in some cases without any reaction to the baby.

I have had some singular success in the treatment of Fistula Fissure and Abscess as you can read from the reports of grateful patients in the link I mentioned above and I would prefer that Jennifer uses my therapy as I believe that she is best served by using it.

I would like to clarify a sentence in my post above that I feel can be misinterpreted. I have stated:

'In the case of Arnica I have used it in some cases without any reaction to the baby.'

What I wished to convey was that I have used it in a FEW cases when the mothers were nursing their babies without any reaction to the baby.

Dear Joe

I'd slightly clarify my position.

Suggestion of Nitric acid for fissure is not unprecedented in this forum.

In the below link, Dr. Sajjad has prescribed Nitric acid for a nursing mother with 2 months old baby.

In the below links you can see pankaj recommending Nitric acid for fissure.


Below is the link where Kuldeep says Nitric ac is his NO.1 prescription for fistulas.

In the same link you can find that Mr. Jacob the usually reticent homeopath(on remedy choice)also has said that its the most indicated remedy for this condition.


I'm just clarifying my selection of remedy as an input, not overruling you.
