Hello Mardiansyah,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Boils can grow anywhere, including near the anus. This ulcer occurs due to inflammation of the oil glands in the skin, mainly due to bacterial infections. Clinically, ulcers are characterized by a lump that is reddish, swollen, itchy, painful, and the peak is whitish because it contains pus. When the immune system is good, boils often deflate or break on their own without the need for special handling. Although, in some conditions, often also requires additional treatment, such as antibiotics and even surgery.


Need to be clarified beforehand, what exactly do you experience boils symptoms? Have you seen a doctor and diagnosed boils?


Boils around the anus can be confused with several other conditions, for example perianal abscesses, genital warts, anal cancer, rectal prolapse, scabies, contact dermatitis, and so on. The treatment of each of these conditions can be different even though the clinical symptoms look similar. Your condition that has not improved at this time may be caused by inadequate treatment.


Our advice, before giving any treatment, first check yourself with a doctor or a specialist skin and genitals. Thus, it can be evaluated, whether your condition is really caused by ulcers, or not. For now, here are our initial suggestions:

Take paracetamol when the anus feels pain
Expand to drink, eat vegetables and fruits rich in fiber so that the bowel is not hard, and the anus is not sore
Keep the anal area and surroundings clean
Don't do anal sex, especially with partners whose sexual history is not clear

Hope this helps ...
