Do Perianal Abscesses Need Surgery?
Hello, I want to ask. Last time I checked with the doctor about my pain when I sat down, and it hurt when my left butt was held. After being examined, the doctor’s diagnosis was due to a perianal abscess so that a fever appeared, and pain when sitting. Whether the abscess cannot heal without surgery. And what is the medicine for pain to overcome this, huh?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Perianal abscess is a condition where there is accumulation of pus in the anal area and surrounding areas due to infection. This infection can be preceded by the presence of certain sexually transmitted infections, a blockage in the anal gland, the formation of sores in the anus, and the presence of small gaps in the anal canal. The risk of this condition can increase if a person has diverticulum disease, receives anal sex, suffers from diabetes, takes certain anti-inflammatory drugs, and suffers from inflammation of the pelvis.
Regarding your question, unfortunately this condition must be treated with surgery. If you don't need surgery, it's usually not an abscess. If an anal abscess has formed, it means that the infection is already severe enough so that if it is not dissected, it will be very difficult to cure. In its recovery, after surgery, you will be given antibiotics, painkillers and anti-inflammatory, also may other drugs depending on what symptoms you are experiencing.
Then regarding your question, the only common medication given is pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs. However, if this is still lacking to reduce your pain, you should consult your surgeon to give a stronger dose or other types of drugs that can have a stronger effect. You cannot and indeed should not buy it without a doctor's prescription, so for your pain problems, the best treatment is to consult your problem with your doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
