I think this is what I have as it hurts so much when I poop like as if it’s ripped. Does it go away on its own if you eat a lot of fibre?

I keep putting off doing the toilet due to how much it hurts

Eat foods rich in fibre and get some laxatives. If your problem persists, please see your GP.

Okay thank you! How long should I wait too go to the doctors like I don’t want to go too soon but don’t want too wait too late if you know what I mean

I think you should go as soon as possible. Call your gp or go to a&e.

Generally the advice is for you to consume some fibre and then seek medical help if problem persists for more than 3 days. However, I dont know how bad your condition is.

I am also not a doctor or medical practitioner.

I dont want to give medical advice over the internet because I am not qualified to do so. If it was me, I would get some high fibre food and then take some low-grade laxatives like Dulcolax (seek advice from the pharmacist before purchase). If the issue persists, then go to the hospital to check if it something major.

Let us know how it goes.

I really don't think this counts as either an accident or an emergency and warrants a visit to A&E!

Yes I sometimes get it, and it is so painful and annoying.

Chronic constipation may require him to go to the a&e. I think the OP needs to use laxatives first to hopefully loosen their stool.

The article advises seeing a pharmacist or GP, not going to A&E

If it is torn, it needs some time to heal. Personally I would apply sudocrem to it regularly. If it doesn't go, speak to the GP or your pharmacy about it.

It may not even be a fissure, but piles, which can be painful too. Those can be treated with OTC medication.

OP you really should just book yourself an appointment with the GP. They are the most qualified people to advise you.

Yeah I agree, just due to COVID I’d rather not go which is why I checked if anyone knew first

Apart from a proctologist or a sex clinic. It will be useful to see what help this person gets if they do get medical attention.
