Yeast/Anal Fissure

I have anal fissures that keep coming back. Could yeast cause fissures? I would think if yeastmakes it so our skin cracks and burns easily (like my vagina) that it could be the cause of my fissures as well. I never see this on any lists of symptoms and wondered.

I have taken antibiotics 16 times in the last 18 months. I KNOW I have a yeast problem---I have now been diagnosed with vulvodynia (vaginal burning with no bacteria/yeast but I believe they have not cultured it long enough to find the resistant or non-albicans yeast) and none of my 3 doctors I have seen for this believe it is a yeast overgrowth. Yet I have other symptoms that say YES it is. They don't believe in yeast syndrome.

Let me add a suggestion to read the following article:
