About 2 weeks ago I thought I was having a flair up of my haemorroids so treated accordingly however it just kept getting more and more painful three days later i started to get very high fevers but still didnt associate the two, eventually on the sunday I was in agony and so so ill, I took a bath to try and relieve the pain and discovered a huge swelling to the right side of my anus and all along the inner butt cheek, I freaked out and went to the Emergency Dept where I was told I had an anal abcess (never had heard of it) and that it needed surgery, the surgeons came but when the team heard of my severe allergic reactions to anaestesia decided it was more life threathning to give me the surgery. 48 hours antibiotics were given to try and see if it would help if not then surgery was the only option. I was obviously terrified and in horrendous pain. I tend to be quite proactive so i began my research which led me here. I was skepical but anything is better than potentially dying so i gave it a go - after the first time it started to reduce, by 48 hours it was a lot better so they continued the antibiotics for another 3 days, by friday there was very little pus left so there was no need for surgery however i was put on another 7 days of antibiotics which im still on. Now 10 days in im still doing the epsom salt bath and the paste nightly and ive two questions for the veterans = now all i can feel is that a small area around where the main abcess area was is still harder to the touch than the other side - its not painful or no visible swelling - should i continue with the paste til it feels completely normal? and is the area still meant to feel a bit different til it heals completely? also are there any things i can do to try and prevent it from happening again? Also want to say a huge thank you for the rememedy - it may literally have saved my life :)
