Perianal Abscess Treatment Without Surgery

Peri-anal abscesses are the most common type of ano-rectal abscesses. These abscesses can cause sever pain, fever and discomfort for patients. They are located at the anal verge and if left untreated can extend into the ischio-anal space or inter-sphincteric space since these areas are continuous with the peri-anal space. They can also cause systemic infection if left untreated and complications like fistula in ano. Peri-anal abscess is curable by ayurvedic treatment. Anal abscess can form fistula in ano if not treated properly.

Modern science has kept it’s search for a technique open to assure permanent cure. They tried to improved cutting tools for surgery and replaced scissors / blades to laser. But they kept their focus on the concept that ‘only on removal of infection is enough’. If this is really true, modern science must have assured cure.

What is Pilonidal sinus?

Modern science has kept it’s search for a technique open to assure permanent cure. They tried to improved cutting tools for surgery and replaced scissors / blades to laser. But they kept their focus on the concept that ‘only on removal of infection is enough’. If that is enough modern science must have assured cure.

In early stages, patient don’t understand the seriousness of a pimple on buttock near tail bone at lower back area is pilonidal sinus. But that pimple can be an external opening of pilonidal sinus or abscess. ‘ Pilonidal ‘ means nest of hairs. A pilonidal sinus is a tube like random shape structure which contains a tuft of hairs. This may contain infected tissues, pus, blood. When the tunnel gets blocked, it is called cyst / abscess. There is no perfect translation / meaning in Marathi for the word “pilonidal sinus”.

When hair and it’s root get infected, the hair may not come out side skin. It may travel below skin spreading infection to other hair roots. This infection grows in the mid line of body and may have 1 / 2 or more holes involved. It may remain for 2/4 or more years if untreated. When the infection get locked below skin due to blocking of hair holes. When infection increases inside the skin, the abscess creates pressure and pain. The pain subsides only when the cyst bursts.

What is an Anal Abscess?

Just inside the anus are a number of small glands that make mucus. Occasionally, these glands get clogged and can become infected. This leads to a painful condition in which a collection of pus develops near the anus. This pus collection is called as anal abscess. About half of these abscesses may develop into a fistula.

90% of all ano-rectal abscesses are caused by non-specific obstruction and subsequent infection of the glandular crypts of the rectum or anus.

Anorectal abscesses may occur in the perianal, ischiorectal, intersphincteric, supralevator or submucosal spaces. Anorectal abscesses are collections of pus within dermis and deeper skin tissues, most often due to crypto glandular infection or associated inflammatory bowel disease. Perianal abscesses are the most common type of anorectal abscess.

In around 80% of cases, anal fistulae are secondary to a cryptogenic (infectious) process involving the anal glands. Infection of the anal glands leads to abscess formation in the inter-sphincteric planes which can then bud in different directions. Once the tract reaches an epithelized surface, it completes a fistula.

How is Anal Abscess diagnosed?

  • Physical Examination :

Doctor will look for pain, redness, and swelling in the anal area. The doctor will then try to determine how deep the abscess is. Sometimes the abscess may be deeper than a physical examination. In that case doctor may need further tests to confirm the structure of fistula –

Some patients may need to perform additional tests to check involvement of other diseases like Tuberculosis.(T.B) , Cancer, IBS ( Inflammatory bowel Syndrome), Ulcerative colitis , Crohn’s disease, Sexually transmitted diseases (STD).

Abscess Treatment Without Surgery

The main purpose should be remove the pus / infection out of body. This is natural reaction of body where it isolates any kind of infection to avoid further damage. In the drainage surgery, this infection is drained by taking incision. But according to Ayurvedic concepts, if we help body to “ripe” the abscess quickly, it will automatically burst out. Many times there is no need of surgery to drain.

Ayurvedic Treatment for perianal abscess

In our clinic in India, we treat abscess only by Ayurvedic medicines. In our 24 years research under Dr. Prasad Bapat’s guidance, we found that the pain anal abscess is due to the pressure of blocked infection. We just need to let it burst.

Use of herbal medicines and pultis of certain herbs on the swelling helps the abscess to “ripe” very fast. In 4 to 10 days the infection makes its way toward the skin. Once the abscess bursts, the pus comes out automatically. It reduces the pain too.
