Perirectal Abscess Surgery
I have a wound from a perirectal abscess surgery that has fully healed after nearly 3 months. What could be wrong? What can be done to help healing?

Enema is needed: Barium is probably not the contrast media I would choose. I would perform . I would choose a water soluble media. Just in case the cause of the abscess was a hole in the bowel.

I have a vulvar abscess I believe. It hurts when laying down, standing and sitting. I don't want surgery is there another way to make it go away?
