I didn't try any of the other home remedies and they all sound great,, but what worked for me was simply putting a tissue soaked in peroxide on the affected area,, it wasn't messy and I didn't even know it was draining,, I just felt relief and a reduction in size of the abscess,, it may not work for everyone but it cost $1 and helped after only 1 hour,, this was my first treatment so I'm not sure how effective it is for long term but so far it is amazing,, hope this helps someone else!!
This is very rare for me to comment on a random website, but I feel obligated since the information was extremely helpful to my situation. First Thank You all very much for your words of wisdom. I especially liked Lars comment on September 25, 2015 where he explained the full treatment method he utilized including the making of the medical paste.
I first felt a small bump in my anus when I was wiping myself after going to the bathroom. It was about pea sized at the time. This was 4 days ago. I have had hemorrhoids in the past, but this was different b/c there was no pain or irritation at all and no bleeding. To be honest, I was even more nervous because I thought it could be a cancerous colon tumor (one of my close friends recently was diagosed with colon cancer; he is slightly older than me in the mid 40's).
I wasn't sure if I wanted to go to the doctor immediately b/c I was very busy with work the next few days, there was no pain at all, I'm generally very healthy and never get sick, and I really didn't want to know if it was cancerous....I was hoping it would just go away. Well, that changed very quickly! By the next day and a half, the bump grew to the size of a golf ball and it was EXTREMELY painful to sit or do anything. I still thought it was hemorrhoids, so I bought some Preparation H, some disinfectant wipes that contained witch hazel. Those things didn't help at all!
The more I read, the more ignorant I felt. Was this just stubborn case of hemorrhoids that was going to become an Externally Exposed Hemhorroid? A Perirectal Hematoma? An Anal Fissure? Was it indeed Colon Cancer?? Turns out it wasn't any of those, but in fact a Perianal Abscess. I spoke with my friend with colon cancer and he actually said that it was very positive that 1) there was no bleeding, 2) it WAS painful and 3) that it grew so quickly because those are signs that It is NOT cancer. There was another symptom I also experienced....I started to experience flu-like symptoms (body was a bit achy and I was getting a little fever, although I did feel cold chills at times too).
I stumbled upon this website as I was researching my condition (what helped me the most was to compare pictures on the web with my condition and also read the symptoms) and the procedures seemed simple and very logical. But most importantly effective. (I preferred not to go in for surgery, especially in the rectal area!).
I followed the steps Lars suggested (scroll back to 9/25/15 and you can find his comment).....got some Epsom Salt and took a bath for about 30 minutes (I didn't know what a sitz bath was, but it's a special tub that allows for just soaking your butt, but I just took a regular bath). This was very comforting. After that I made the medical paste (I guess the proper term is poultice), which is comprised of baking soda, turmeric (I bought the capsules and poured out the contents), coconut oil and tea tree oil. Make sure you put a lot of tissues over the wound, wear old underwear, and put a towel on your bed because the puss and medical paste makes nasty stains.
I've been doing the baths and putting on the poultice for the last couple days and I feel SIGNIFICANTLY better as the puss has mostly come out (took about 10-11 hours for puss to start coming out) and the pressure has been relieved. While I'm not 100\\% yet, I'm quite confident I will be in a couple of days. I probably should have taken some antibiotics to offset the major infection.
Lastly, while I haven't gone to the doctor yet, I plan to next week. I also want to get a colonoscopy. My friend with the colon cancer said that we should start getting this test when we get into our early 40's.
All u wonderful people !! Am leaping in joy... :-) the wonder paste cured me from the abscess pain in jus 3 hrs !! I had the first abscess occurence in Jan 2016...it was an excruciating pain and I didn't have the patience to Google a home remedy..got it operated and went through a painful procedure.. all went well till last week..again started feeling a pain in the same place..went to the doc and they gave their regular painkillers and told if it doesn't subside would need to do the procedure like last time..I was in no mood to get admitted again..
Came home and searched for a home remedy for anal fistula and abscess formation.. got to read all the posts in this grp...the tea tree oil + turmeric paste combo!!! Whoaaaaa... worked a wonder in just 3 hrs !! Applied it at 10:30 pm and had a sleepless painful 3 hrs...at the end...heard a soft pop and could feel the abscess getting drained into the cotton gauze !! Cleaned myself and sat in a tub of hot water for 10 min..again have put a cotton gauze and planning to visit the doc tomorrow to get a check done...
Thanks u lovely people... and yeah this wonder paste truly works !!!
I have had these painful little things for some time now.the same spot and forced to have it lanced 3 out of 4 times. Luckily i decided to search the web yet another time before rushing to the e.r. This $15 miracle cream is the beez knees!!! Rubbed it on about 6 hours ago and went to bed. Woke up, went to the bathroom and voala open like flood gates instantly relieving pain. I was sceptical just like some others on here.... But spend the 15 bucks and try it before you condemn. Thanks again
I've decided to have the cyst removed surgically since it has returned three times in the same spot. When its drained it is like a baloon thats deflated, all is good until it inflates again. The surgery will remove the baloon for good. I tried the paste and its messy, stains everything it touches, and didnt really offer relief, wish I could say that it helped but all it did was make my wife mad that the floor mat, towels, sink and bathtub were all orange when she woke up the next day, haha.
The doctor explained that there is a pool of puss that drains immediately, but that there is still infection in the surrounding tissue, sort of like a full sponge and she squeezed alot more out than i would have myself. Probably one of the most painful experiences of my life, but the relief was immediate. The main reason i am sharing is because i've let mine drain twice after basically exploding, but it keeps coming back...time to take out the empty baloon...for anyone going through this the first time, just know the pain is gone immediately when its expressed and the infection made me feel like i had the flu, fever, malaise...good luck and i hope i helped in some way.
Put this concoction on an hour ago and it's already draining. Such a relief!
Just wanted to tell all the doubters out there (because I was one to) If you are waiting to try this cute then you are the problem. I tried it 1 time that's right I said 1 time and saved myself a trip to the proctologist I am literally going on vacation in three days and this saved my vacation it burned for an out 10 min I layer down for about two to three hours got up went to remove the pad and it busted handfuls of puss and blood. THIS WORKED THE FIRST TIME I want to call the newspapers. I made the poultice exactly the ingredients cost about 30 bucks BEST 30 I HAVE EVER SPENT when it drain INSTANT RELIEF INSTANT. I will never doubt homeopathic remedies ever ever agian. So if your like me in agony for two weeks wanting to kill yourself scared It was ass cancer TRY THIS it worked for me hopefully it works for you. Thank you god thank you meds thank you google. I'm gonna go sit all over the place because I can now hahaha have a good day people and god bless
I tried the turmeric,coconut oil, baking soda mixture sometimes alternating with triple antibiotic ointment and the size of the access has pretty much reduced and no pain at all...although I'm continuing with the procedure so that the whole of it is gone....ps Its the 5th day since I started using this...good luck and quick recovery you gonna make it????
I'm sure the tree oil and turmeric remedy would have work if I had gotten the chance to try it. I found this site when I was in horrible pain from a golf ball size boil right on my butt hole so much pain that I couldn't even drive to the store to get the listed supplies. I ordered everything I needed on amazon prime now but it wouldn't get here til 10pm-12am. In the meantime I used neosporin every hour on the hour and finally the supplies arrived i made the paste and jumped in the tub for step 1 the soak. I gave it 2 gentle squeezes and it burst. I could feel the pain draining out along with the puss. I only used the for 1 day and it worked great. So I would suggest trying it.
Quick question. After 2nd day of applying the paste formula, I get a burning feeling when paste is applied and continues for a few hours. Anyone else experience a burning sensation?
