Before treatment...: Could you be referring to fissures, fistula, abscess? Sexually transmitted disease (syphilis, gc, hiv, etc.) should be considered. Hemorrhoids & rectal prolapse can appear as an outward bulging. Anal trauma of any kind may cause mechanical injury. Skin eruptions need to be considered. Evaluation is recommended to distinguish serious versus less concerning reasons for your problem before treatment. ...Read more

Boil: Would recommend that you not do this. Usually due to a bacteria called Staph aureus, and if improperly treated can become quite serious and spread to other areas. Doctors look at areas like this all the time and there is nothing to be embarrassed about. Good luck and hope this helps. ...Read more

Perianal abscess: You are describing a perianal abscess and anorectal fistula. An infection of one of the anal "crypts" or glands that circle the anus can work its way to the perianal skin where it forms an access that eventually drains to the outside. This can result in a "fistula" or passage way between the inside of the anus and the surrounding skin> recurrent boils. See> http://wb. Md/1l6AWX1 ...Read more

I have a painful boil in my anus... I tired to pop it I felt it pop but nothing came out because of all the skin. ... What should I do?

I have a painful boil in my anus... I tired to pop it I felt it pop but nothing came out because of all the skin. ... What should I do?

Surgeon/dermatologis: You need a surgeon (a general surgeon or preferably a colorectal surgeon) or a dermatologist to I&D (incise and drain) the boil. Boils are actually abscesses, which means they are walled-off infections. The pus, or bacteria-filled fluid, inside of them must be drained out, and the skin must then heal from the inside out. Squeezing it will only push some pus further in, which will make it worse. ...Read more

My boil popped and now it won't stop bleeding. Is it just draining? Don't hurt anymore and I am keeping it very clean. It was 2 inches from my anus.

My boil popped and now it won't stop bleeding. Is it just draining? Don't hurt anymore and I am keeping it very clean. It was 2 inches from my anus.

Poss. Anal fistula: Your history suggests that you may have an anal fistula which is an infection in an anal gland which first appears as a 'boil' and then continues to drain. Keeping it clean is important, but you do need to see a specialist.
If you have an anal fistula, you would need an operation - simple, day surgery. It doesn't sound serious, but you should see a doctor who can make a diagnose.

Painful boil on right buttock right above where anus starts but not on anus. No insurance. So I want to know what home remedies will make it burst?

Not a lot you can: Do at homes besides soaking youe bottom in warm water. They will likely burst on their own if don't get drained. You can apply warm moist heat to it as well.

Perianal abscess: It's a common problem. If it has drained then you just watch and make sure it does not come back. Use baby wipes after BM. Do sitz baths with Epsom salt or just soap, 10-15 min in a warm water. To make sure all infection came out. If comes back or gets worse see a surgeon. ...Read more
