What Is Perianal Abscess?

Perianal abscess is the most common type of abscess. The trapped bacteria in the crypt glands leads to infection, giving rise to a tender red lump under the skin near the anus. It usually appears as an aching blister filled with fluid. However, a perianal abscess located in deeper tissue may be rare and not visible. This infection from small anal glands can further develop a complication called a fistula. Knowing that in some cases, an anal fistula causes persistent drainage and in others recurrent anal abscesses, a surgical incision is the most common treatment for all types of anal abscesses and is usually successful.

So through answering all your question such as, ‘Why this treatment?’, ‘What are its benefits?’, ‘Perianal abscess surgery recovery time?’ etc., our healthcare experts in the House of Doctors will mentor you throughout the process and give you the most effective perianal abscess treatment in Mumbai.

Types Of Perianal Abscess?


CAUSES OF Perianal Abscess

An anal abscess can have many different causes. These include:

Anal fissure
Sexually transmitted infections
Inflammatory bowel disease (Ulcerative colitis OR Crohn’s disease)
Inflammatory intestine pouches (Diverticulitis)
Inflammatory pelvic disease (Gonorrhea OR Chlamydia)
Blocked anal glands

Perianal Abscess Surgery

In most circumstances, surgical drainage is the suggested treatment for abscess. To drain the infection and relieve the pressure to allow the tissues to heal properly, an incision is made in the skin near the anus. This is done in an operating room under local or deeper anaesthesia. A small piece of the overlying skin is removed to open the abscess. Next, the content of the abscess (pus) is drained and a dressing is used to cover the wound.

This operation takes about 30 minutes. However, some mild pain in the anal area can be felt due to perianal abscess surgery for several days. Patients can mostly resume their normal routine one or two days later, while it may approximately take at least three weeks for your abscess to completely heal. Individuals with compromised immune system will also be recommended antibiotics to control the spread of infection.

If left untreated, this abscess may cause significant discomfort at the anal verge and extend into the ischioanal space (wedge-shaped space inferior to the pelvic diaphragm) or intersphincteric space (small abscess in the closed space) since these areas are continuous with the perianal space.

Therefore, expert Surgeons of the House of Doctors, Mumbai propose perianal abscess laser surgery which involves no bleeding and is minimally invasive.

Perianal Abscess Treatment In Mumbai

Based on the severity and other medical problems, perianal abscess treatment may be attained on an outpatient and inpatient basis. Nonetheless, the best treatment offered in Mumbai shall be explained to the patient at the House of Doctors in detail.

  • Minor , perianal abscess laser surgery may be performed by our doctors, in-house using local anaesthesia, an injection in the infected area and possibly IV sedation. But most patients may be referred to our specialists for treatment of perianal abscesses because the abscess may involve additional structures or require more debridement that may not be apparent until it is surgically explored.
  • Patients who have had a gap of five to ten years in taking tetanus booster may need an update.
  • To check the progress and evaluate the patient post-treatment, blood and other tests may be needed.
  • Abscess may be left open to drain without stitches as stitching would just fill with pus again. But there may be packing in the wound which can be only removed by our healthcare professional after a few days.
  • Patients may need to take an antibiotic and pain medication for several days, depending on their condition and number of days at the hospital.

We understand the friction between diagnosis and cure that pulls you from both the end. Hence to put an end to your constant search for the best perianal abscess treatment in Mumbai, our highly qualified and experienced doctors of HOD comes forward to give you the best analysis, treatment and care. You’re just a step away from seeking guidance and clearing all your doubts and hesitation linked with the disease.

Things a patient must know after getting the treatment for perianal abscess.

  • CARE - No aspirin or products containing aspirin must be consumed for at least seven days as they promote bleeding. It takes a minimum of two to four weeks for the wound to heal, and therefore don't worry if bleeding, discharge, pus, or itching occurs as it is part of the normal healing process. Remember that anal hygiene is important. Thus bath or shower at least twice a day and apply either cotton dressings, or mini-pads to the wound as per the condition.
  • DIET - Eat high fibre food and drink plenty of water to keep your bowel movements soft and regular. It is important to drink at least 6-8 glasses a day. In case of constipation, take fibre supplements and prune juice.
  • ACTIVITY - Any type of strenuous activity must be prohibited for the rest of the day. The next day you may go back to your normal activities.
