User avatar Hello jigyasa65,
Your doctor is first treating the infection that accompanies your anal fissure. This may help make the fissure heal. Components of your therapy include an antibiotic and lubricants to help avoid further trauma and allow the fissure to heal. If it does not heal however, surgery may be needed.
