22 Comments for the Anal Abscess Home Remedy


The first time I suffered perianal abscesses was in my early 40s and only a month after having surgery to remove my hemorrhoids! I went to the emergency room to diagnose and treat these extremely painful anal boils, something much more painful than the hemorrhoids! To treat them, I went to the emergency room and the surgeon lanced them without anesthesia and wow did that HURT!

After a pretty painful month dealing with both issues, I haven't had anal 'issues' till just a few weeks ago.

Suddenly I started feeling the 'boils' develop just under my sphincter. Even after 20+ years, I knew exactly what would follow ... something I did not want to deal with again by going to the emergency room for surgical lancing of the abscesses.

Ergo, I searched the Web for a homeopathic solution, including this website. So I thought it only appropriate to share the resulting methods used to deal with very painful experience.

To say the least it was VERY effective, providing drainage and relief after only one treatment before going to bed. I didn't even require a sitz bath before :-) So without further ado, here's the treatment method that's getting me GREAT results.

1st, and most important, make your poultice.

Poultice Ingredients:
* 2 tsp turmeric
* 2 tsp baking soda
* 2 tsp coconut oil
* 1/4 tsp or 15 drops of tea tree oil

1. Thoroughly mix all ingredients in a small bowl, preferably glass, to a smooth paste consistency.

Next, start treating the abscesses.

Treatment Method:
1. Take warm shallow bath or sitz bath with epsom salt for 20-30 minutes. Re-filling with warm water as necessary.
2. When done with bath, pat and dry the area with a towel or cotton cloth. Never allow infected area to stay wet.
3. With a q-tip or other type of swab, apply poultice directly on abscess, spreading it over the entire area.
4. Cover or stuff gauze into area so it won't easy fall out.
5. Use powder or cotton in your inner wear to keep area dry.
Ideally, do this three times a day with the last before going to bed. If in the morning, the abscess hasn't begun to drain, repeat daily till it does.
Note: In my case I started before going to bed, not even taking a bath and the next morning the abscesses had already begun to drain :-) However, I did have to change my bed sheets ;-)

To help promote proper healing I'm finding what you do after the abscess begins to drain is very important.

After care treatment:
* After drainage begins, as necessary, gently wipe affected area with soft cotton cloth soaked in hot water and rubbed with hypoallergenic soap. The last thing you want now is a cleansing liquid or bar soap that causes irritation to your skin!
* Hot compresses can also help the healing process by enhancing blood circulation and diluting the infective toxins.
* As with the treatment, never allow infected area to stay wet.
* Daily nutrients and drinking lots of water and fluids can also help dilute the toxins that still remain while mitigating recurrences down the road. A daily multi-vitamin is a good place to start.
Here two PDFs on after care, regardless of whether you decide on surgery or home remedy:

Ongoing Preventative Management
* Take plenty of water and fruit juices to avoid constipation
* Follow hygienic measures in your ongoing cleansing and caring for the area.
* Get in the habit of passing stool twice a day to avoid strain to rectum and anus
* Don’t strain while defecating. It is better to have semisolid stool for easy defecation
* Sitz bath – After passing stool, take a warm sitz bath with salted water for 10 minutes. In a pinch you can use a hot rinsed soft cotton cloth rubbed with hypoallergenic soap to keep the area hygienically clean.
* • Avoid nylon underwear and use cotton ones
* If you do get another attack treat abscess immediately. Don't wait!!

I hoped the above helps those in need of relief and thanks to everyone here who've shared their challenges and solutions :-)

Thank you for your posting! Worked wonders..relieved pain, reduced inflammation and brought to a head and released in about 12 hours - mid evening to mid morning. Blessings to you for helping me :)


After you make this mixture, can you store it for repeated use until the abscess has opened and drained? leave in glass container covered, or put in fridge?




Thank you, thank you, thank you! One time and it worked! I love Google



I recently found out I have an abscess near the anus. I think I popped it without knowing it was even there. It isint big, its very tiny but its still there and forming puss. The puss seems to drain but it keeps coming back. Any idea why it keeps coming back? Will this treatment help? Im so freaked out after reading online that it never gets healed and could form fistulas. Mine is tiny for now but Im so freaked. Please please help :'(


I'll be darned, it worked!!! After a sleepless night, and much contemplation of going to the ER, for a second lancing, which is an expirience i didn't want to go through again. Thank you!



Did the abscess every stop draining and completely heal for all of you? Or did it reoccur?


I've had two of these things already and I'm only 32. The first time was not even 6 months ago. Doctor gave me a dose of Flagyl and sitz baths cured it, but I have it again. I will try this remedy and let you all know if it works. I'm so sick of these things, these are literally the worst ailment I can think of.


Yes please do share your experience with using turmeric. I used it and the next day there was some pus and since then there hasnt been any but it seems like the wound is taking a while to close and im mighty scared of it getting infected again :'( these are really the worst


OMG your home remedy worked! My pain started on a Friday in my groin area. By Saturday I was googling to find out what was wrong with me. I self diagnosed myself with a perineal abcess. A major boil in between my anus and vagina. I took 3 hot Epsom salt baths Saturday but no relief. Sunday I decided to make the home remedy previously posted. I was by this time in extreme pain and contemplating the emergency room. Within two hours of applying the home remedy twice, my abcess drained. I had relief instantly, but it took another day for complete relief. It did sting like the previous post indicated.
