Dr Oz: Anal Fissures

According to Dr Oz, 80 percent of people may have had an anal fissure and didn’t even realize it.  Dr Oz stated that when you think you have a hemorrhoid, you may actually have an anal fissure, which can be much worse.

    Could you please be more specific re: using epsom salt for fissures. I am 89 and can’t take tub baths anymore. If I make a mixture of water and epsom salts for a hand bath,
    what proportions should I use? If using witch hazel, do I take it straight out of the bottle
    and let it dry on?

    LOVE your demonstrations!
