Whilst on holiday I got a anal abscess and was prescribed antibiotics for 3 days by a doctor. Afraid this wasn’t going to fully clear the infection, and not wanting to have to undergo surgery in a foreign country, I tried the turmeric and coconut oil paste. I put it on at night and a few hours later noticed blood on the cotton pad. After soaking it in warm water more pus and blood began to drain out to my relief.
I still have a week left of the holiday and want to make sure I keep it as clean as possible to avoid further infection. I wondered what methods people believe are best for fully draining the boil and preventing further infection? Also is there any way to prevent this turning into a fistula? Thanks
