Acute Fissure Treatment: The Beginner’s Guide

Acute fissure treatment is a surgical procedure in which the remnants of a traumatic event are closed by suturing or using other methods of surgery. 

An acute fissure is a type of skin infection caused by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. It can occur on any part of the body but is more common on the face, neck, and scalp.

There are several acute fissure treatment options available, including antibiotics, topical cream, and corticosteroids. If the fissure does not improve after a week or two of treatment, surgery may be necessary to remove the infection.

Oral antibiotics are typically recommended for patients with mild to moderate fissures that do not require surgical intervention. 

Topical cream or ointment may also be prescribed for patients who have mild fissures that do not require surgery but do require a regular application to maintain healing. 

Surgery is generally recommended for patients with severe or extensive fissures that have not healed after other treatments have been attempted. 

If you think you have an acute fissure, see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

Symptoms of an Acute Fissure

If you experience any of the following symptoms, it’s time to seek medical attention: severe pain on one or both sides of the rectum or colon, blood in the stool, fever, chills, worsening diarrhea, or constipation. 

In most cases, an acute fissure will heal on its own in a few weeks. If the fissure is severe or doesn’t improve after two weeks, it may require treatment with antibiotics.
