Anorectal abcessSomeone I know had a bump appear on the outside over there anus, it was a little swollen and it gave off a lot of heat. It became very painful for her to sit or lie down in almost any position. There was no pus or blood discharge. The doctors said it could have been caused by an ingrown hair or a scrath that got infected. The doctors drained puss out of the bump and filled it with gauze which must be changed every day until the hole is healed. Another nurse at the place she goes to have her gauze changed said the doctor should have prescribed an anti-biotic and someone else said she would have to go to the hospital to have the puss drained again. Does anyone know the name for this and what really should be done?

I have had the very same problem. In March 2004 i also had an absess quite near my anus. After draining the absess they found a number of fistulas which which endedup in having 9 opeations 2 get rid of them. I have been dressing the would for over 2 years and only 4 the support of my husband would probably have gone bonkers. I have tried everything... Arnica 30c is good and will improve the healing but for me it still has not totally healed. My absess site is less than quarer of an inch deep and width wise very tiny but it is still not healing. I think now that good diet, time and patience with these things is the only way 2 go. I have been very depressed over it but realised that by getting myself down was not doing me any good. Since i took a new approach 2wards this it seems 2 have begun healing, slowly but at least its going the right way. Keep ur chin up and take every day as it comes and learn from this, god knows i have.... Also make sure that u are having regular bowel movements this is really important. i really hope this is of some use 2 u. Tracey

which I shall partially copy below:
I would suggest that you use the following regimen in treating your problem as presented today.
It will be necessary that you use an antibiotic ointment (not cream) which is to be inserted into the affected area twice daily through the anus. This is done by covering your finger with a Fingercote or an individual rubber glove for the finger which you can get from a pharmacy. If this is not available you can get a standard rubber glove from which the fingers are cut and each one can be rolled back like a condom and used to cover your finger when inserting the ointment after every bowel movement or more often. This antibiotic will hopefully assist in keeping the bacterial count as low as possible to enable the tissue to regenerate.
Arnica 30c 2 pellets taken 3 times daily will help the wound to heal.
Silicea 6x 2 tablets taken 3 times daily will help to drain the pus from the wound.
Nat Phos 6x 2 tablets taken after 2 meals will help to soften hard stools which will irritate the delicate surface lining further.
Avoid all foods like red meat, coffee and alcohol and any other food that you have observed during the past years has caused some distress.
Please read the other posts on this thread and you may understand that this therapy that I have suggested can help you and may be your last resort to help you avoid radical surgery.
I would like to mention here that you may get more attention and advice by posting your problem on the same thread indicated above as many other homeopaths are also advising on this ailment which seems to be quite common and is usually treated by surgery which never a solution nor a cure.
