Chronic fissure and hemorrhoids, help

If anyone out there has the same issues as me or has any solutions, please respond. I’m desperate. 27 year old female here, started off with hemorrhoids about 8 months ago that within 4 months became a fissure, and has just essentially not gotten better. I’ve seen a doctor finally and she essentially just recommended what I’m already doing. She tells me I can never have too much fiber. I take fiber powder 3x a day, fiber gummies, consume it overly in my diet. The recommended dose of daily fiber is 25-30 grams. I probably at upwards of 40. It gives me diarrhea. Which makes my hemorrhoids flare up. And therefore the fissure. It’s stressful. I take daily baths with salts at least once sometimes 2 a day. I would take more because it helps the butt but it dries my skin. I have been prescribed nifedipine with lidocaine ointment...works as long as I don’t have another BM. Which happens 3-4 daily with all this fiber. I’m at a loss. Doc doesn’t want to do any surgical options on me as that can cause incompetence. Does anyone have any recommendations? Also I am dairy free if that is a question of anyone

Re: Chronic fissure and hemorrhoids, help

can you get a balance so no diarrohea & too much bathing is not good. I use nappy cream after soft BM and as a last resort proctosydal ....steroid cream for a weak.
Has your GP taken a swab to check cor fungal issues?
Good luck

Don't take the fibre powder the, if it is making so trouble. Just believe in natural fibre riched foods, eat lentils, drink a lot of water, try to avoid no-veg foods ( as they are less in fibre).

All the best, I am sure there is a solution to your issue, explore options with your doctor. Eat healthy, and try other vitamins, intake. Perhaps if you give blood often it will help with the haemorrhoids.

Diarrhea would make it worst, maybe you should stop taking the powder fiber or lessen it like once a day instead of 3
