Homeopathy Medicine for Perianal Abscesses


Perianal Abscesses are the most common type of anorectal abscesses.

An abscess is a localised collection of infected fluid, and the most typical type of anorectal abscess is located at the anal verge and, if left untreated, can extend into the ischioanal space or intersphincteric space. Since these areas are continuous with the perianal space, if left untreated, they can also result in systemic infection.

Causes of Perianal Abscesses :

When bacteria become trapped in the crypt glands that line the anal canal, the infection results in a superficial infection called a perianal abscess, which manifests as a tender, red lump under the skin close to the anus.

A perianal abscess is a specific type of anorectal abscess that is confined to the perianal space. Patients with recurrent or complex abscesses should be evaluated for Crohn’s disease. Ninety percent of all anorectal abscesses are caused by non-specific obstruction and subsequent infection of the glandular crypts of the rectum or anus.
