51 Home Remedies for Anal Abscess


Hi everyone! I'm interested in the remedy but I would like to ask for some clarifications first. I had my first surgery in March of 2016 after probably a year of suffering with an abscess alone and scared until I went to the doctor and she referred me to a surgeon. I was trying to see if it would heal on its own and it kind of did on and off but it ALWAYS came back and was painful. Anyways, I had my surgery with a local anesthetic and it still hurt because it was deeper than expected. Months went by and it still didn't properly heal. Had surgery #2 in May but he put me under so he could get it all without worry of me feeling it and adding to my anxiety. I felt like a new women after that surgery and I couldn't believe the difference! IT WAS FINALLY GONE! I've been taking care of the area and making sure I had good bowel movements so I don't back up and cause an issue or potentially a fissure. Fast forward to today and I'm so nervous and scared that it might be back.

Stupid me didn't change my pad quick enough during my menstrual cycle that has just passed and now I have slight pain and the area is inflamed. I feel like I should also say that I use reusable cloth pads more often then disposable ones (they are called Luna pads if any lady is interested) and if you don't change them often, it can up the moisture levels so to speak. This has happened before during the summer (not just during my menstrual cycle but with sweat and the humidity). It would cause some discomfort but would soon go away after I cleaned the area and kept my eye on it. This time it's been longer. It came on quickly. I thought I just aggravated it because I've been sitting so much at work (I'm usually up and about more then sitting). Now I'm trying to decide what to do! I am going to start ingesting more turmeric but I'm unsure whether to try the poultice too? Could it just be scar pain? I'm so scared of it coming back!


The poultice works. Just mix in 2 table spoon turmeric power, 2 table spoon baking power, 2 table spoon coconut oil, and its optional but highly recommended 10-15 drops of tea tree oil.

Just mix the paste and get ready to take a hot sitz bath. After half an hour just tap dry the affected area and apply the paste.

Believe me it stings a lot. But bear the pain which lasts for 15-20 mins.

Post application just put some cotton gauze roll in place so that the poultice does the Magic.

In say 24 hours the abscess pops up and everything drains.

Wonderful home remedy.

Take care not to touch the poultice with hand otherwise you might just end up getting it infected.

I'm currently in the middle of trying this turmeric paste + tea trea oil combo. When I first noticed the abscesses (I have 2) neither was too terribly sore. One of them was already draining, and I squeezed a ton of pus and blood from it. It's not really that painful now, but the other one that was literally painless yesterday is now in excrutiating pain. It hasn't gotten any bigger that I can tell but after doing 2 treatments of paste at night for 2 nights in a row and taking a turmeric supplement in the morning, it's now hurting like crazy. Does this mean it's come to a head and it's only a matter of time before it bursts or does it just mean that something has irritated it? I've also been doing sitz baths. I'm not getting the quick results you guys are... it's been 2 days so far and I feel like it's actually worse than it was when I started. Comments or suggestions welcome.


So happy I found this. 17 year Crohn's guy with multiple occurrences of these. 38 now, and just got my latest one. It being internal (no channel to skin) I didn't know if it would work but the Turmeric paste got it to pop within 48 hours. Very impressed


Does anyone have experience with recurrences? Mine pops alright with the turmeric paste, but its come back every damn time. Should i just keep putting it on every day or something?


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 :)

Wife of sufferer.

After 24 hours of the turmeric, coconut oil, tea tree oil, and baking soda it busted. This works! I can't believe how well.


This is the answer!! Haha!!

I had my first one of these nasty buggers two years ago. Like a couple of the other guys I stumbled around a week or so think8ng I had hemroids or ass cancer. Ince the pain became blinding I went to the doctor. The doctor lanced it because I begged him to. He wanted to send me to a specialist. That surgery used only local anesthesia and was extremely painful. Ince it was drained I was good.

About a week ago another one of these bastards popped up. I knew what it was and went straight to the doc. Too small to lance so he sent me home with a script for cream and antibiotics. After two days of antibiotics and cream I was in pain, extreme pain, only peiple whonhave had these things know this pain!

Anyway, 48 hours of Tumwric/tea tree oil/ coconut oil/baking soda I am pain free the abscess is almost drained.

This works

So glad I found this site. I am somewhat of an anal abscess veteran having survived three prior attacks over the past thirty-odd years. . . Usually I just let it run its course, but that can take up to a week to ten days. Not wanting to have to wait things out suffering this time, I Googled "anal abscesses" and it led me here. Thanks be to God.

I read the entire thread and decided there wasn't much to lose, so off I set out for Wal-Mart (driving on one butt-cheek the (w)hole way). I procured the recommended items, and hurried back home, anxious to give it a whirl.

I took a nice 30 minute long soak in the tub, with the water at 110 degrees, before applying the magic poultice with a wad of cotton balls. I then packed in a large gauze pad, which obligingly stayed in place by the friction of my butt-crack alone. I followed up by commandeering one of my wife's feminine pads and securing it to my shorts with its self-adhesive tape. It took a couple of attempts to get it aligned just right, but I persevered. Finally I put on a pair of loose-fitting shorts, then retired to the boudoir to wait for the magic to happen.

I didn't expect anything to happen right away, and I was right. Just a kind of warm grittiness, and of course the relentless painful throbbing of the blasted "thing" itself. I placed a beach towel under where I was lying, just in case. I went to sleep.

I woke up several times in the night from my restless sleep and tightened my sphincter muscles to test the pain threshold, but alas, each time, I could tell the damn thing still hadn't burst.

Finally, just after dawn I awoke with a coughing fit and realized the pain and pressure were hardly there and there was a wetness down there! Yay! It worked! I felt like a new man.

I got cleaned up, fetched another of my wife's feminine pad things (and some clean underwear of course), and just to be on the safe side, two pair of loosely fitting shorts. I feel wonderful and so glad to have this thing behind me (no pu n).

All I can say is my heart-felt thanks go to this site, and if anyone is sitting on the fence (not that one could with this affliction), wondering if this cure is worth it, just do it. You won't regret it.
