Since then I have been to the doctor about 4 times as I have found no relief in the creams or any of the recommended treatment. The latest thing he put me on was a nitroglycerin
ointment. This has help with the fissure (I know longer have pain when using the restroom) but I have now developed a large, red, swollen bump on the left side of my butt cheek on the inside. It goes down to the actual opening but it does not feel like my actual anus is the source of pain.
