1 doctor agrees
In brief: Open & drain Vs med
Occasionally these respond to a warm compress with spontaneous drainage & oral meds can assist the process but many recur. Those that are large or located near the anal outlet often require incision and drainage.
Some can be done in an office & some may require day surgery.
