Hello Ipankk, Thank you for the question.
Is the swollen foot area around the pus area? Pus-filled lumps found near the anus are anal abscesses. Anal abscess is a lump near the anus that appears due to an infection in the small glands near the anus. If the infection is left untreated, the infection can get worse causing a lumpy lump. In addition to being found a lump, the sufferer will also experience pain, pus out of the lump, fever, and fatigue. Management of anal abscess is to perform surgery to remove pus and cleanse it from infection. In addition, doctors will usually also give antibiotics to help deal with infections.
In the area around the infection can become swollen due to inflammation due to infection that occurs. Maybe this is what happened to your wife.
Does your wife do the doctor's recommendation correctly such as taking medication as directed, do regular surgical wound cleansing, and check back (control) according to the doctor's recommended schedule? To ensure that the anal abscess can heal optimally, your doctor will usually advise your wife to take antibiotics and take care of the scars properly. In addition, usually the doctor will also ask the patient to go back to check himself so that the doctor can monitor the condition of the wound from the operation. If all of this is not done properly, the infection cannot be overcome until it is complete and the abscess can reappear. The best step now is to immediately re-check your wife's condition to a surgeon who treats your wife so that the doctor can re-examine before determining further treatment. Your doctor can also examine the swollen feet experienced by your wife to determine whether this condition is related to an ongoing infection or for other reasons.
Encourage your wife to clean the pus with a clean cloth slowly and as much as possible keep the surgical scar area as dry and clean as possible. Avoid squeezing the surgical wound.
Hopefully this information helps you.
