There was no episode of bleeding during stool. No pain during and after stool. No burning at all. The patient was very happy with the treatment. Meanwhile he renewed his subscription further to rid of his complaint permanently.
In the month of October, he had a minor breakdown of fissure which led to bleeding due to the changes in lifestyle but the pain, constipation, burning was of less intensity and duration, which was taken care by the homeopathic medicines. The patient had not taken any allopathic medicines.
