Tried many different things over 12-18 months, olive oil, creams, drinking more water and dietry changes. None of these worked for me. I had bad fissures to the point where there was quite a lot of blood when it was time to go. Anyways, what worked for me was 500mg of Rutin and 1000mg of psyllium husk. Five greens do a good psyllium husk mixed with dandelion extract. Those two things taken every day and within a week I was all good. Would recommend to anyone as it was a quick fix for me I just had to find what worked for me. A couple months since I started and not a single occurrence since.
