Silicea and Seton

Is it safe to use Silicea to help with drainage of a fistula when a Seton has been inserted?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The Seton is described [in a very old book ] as
"An outmoded form of treatment , in which a thread was passed through a pinch of skin and tied in a loop. This acted as a counter irritant to pain elsewhere and produced a running sore thought to be useful for drainage " .

I am amazed that this is still done. I thought even allopaths had moved out of the middle ages!.

Silica is useful for HEALING fistula.

Well, from what I've read about the topic, Setons are still commonly used to ensure that the fistula doesn't heal too quickly and reform as an abscess.

Thank you for your response. I just wanted to make sure taking Silicea was ok to use since it has the tendency to push foreign objects from the body.
