Success only with regimented change and care! If you want these nasty buggers to go away you must follow these important steps!

1. Nothing in the following steps will work if you don’t religiously follow this first step: change your diet.

Hi fiber no crap processed foods no extra fat no bullshit foods. Bland food diet, baked chicken rice root vegetables vegetables vegetables vegetables vegetables vegetables vegetables! Get my point! THE REASON WE ARE ALL IN THIS MESS LOOKING AT THIS BLOG IS BECUASE WE ALL HAVE BEEN STRAINING TOO MUCH AND TOO LONG GOING NUMBER 2! So if we don’t make the conscious effort to change our diet we will continue to strain when we’re sitting on the toilet and continue to be in this situation. It worked for me I like crappy food I made the change I go to bathroom once a day no straining this was the key to the success!

2. Take the Epsom salt bath 3 times a day 20 minutes minimum with out fail. Don’t use epsom salt with any fragrance or added crap to it, plain epsom salt and hot water. Best to do after going to bathroom and prior to Step 3.

3. Turmeric and Ghee (India clarified butter). Another stipulation do not skimp on the Ghee, find it get it and use it as your emulsifier do not use coconut stuff or petroleum jelly, only use ghee. Prior to bed, Mix a teaspoon of high-quality Turmeric powder with a tablespoon or so of ghee mix. Take an Epsom salt bath. Put the Ghee mixture on a gauze pad, slap it on the area and put another guauze pad over it. go to bed, do that three nights in a row.

DISCLAIMER - this stuff stains. It’s best to use underwear and clothes that you prefer never to wear again after this episode. Or that you’re going to designate to be worn on these three nights of shame. Leah towel in your bed try to lay on your side while you sleep. When you awake everything that mixture touch will be yellow it will be yellow for sometime. The sacrifice is worth it.

4. A lot of people on this blog are nervous to consult a doctor. Please don’t do that. It’s best just to check in with your doctor you can tell your doctor like I did that I’m not up for a surgery option and Can you please help me try to remedy this at home without surgery, they will oblige. They don’t want to have to do surgery they would prefer you to get better without surgery. But, if there is a problem and the infection is a big one it’s best to get it seen and fixed by a professional. Either way a medical professional is going to tell you to 1 and 2 for relive along with an OTC hemmroid dream in place of 3. My doctor said to go for the Ghee and turmeric in place of OTC cream.

5. Try to stay calm. This condition hurts physically, mentally and just plain sucks but ALAS THIS TOO SHALL PASS. One way or the other they will go away but we are the masters of this quest, no one else so stay sturdy and steadfast with these steps.

My next quest is to never have these things come back so I am religiously without fail no matter what the situation is no excuses following number one for the rest of my time on this orb! Good luck to you.

Turmeric and ghee

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

I promised myself I would post what worked for me, so here it is.

Heat patches. The ones manufactured by Deep Heat for joint and muscle pain. Just slap a patch on the abscess and let it heat up your butt for 8 hours. It's like a warm compress that retains heat for much, much longer than a hot cloth does. It burst mine within a few hours.

Heat increases blood flow to the area, turns off the local pain signals, brings the boil to the surface, and softens the skin, all of which makes it more likely to rupture.

So I only chanced on this thread this morning and realized what I was suffering from was not piles but an Abscess. I was in so much pain and reading through all the remedies. Since I didn’t have access to the ingredients I used what was available to me which is hemorrhoids ointment (most of you might be familiar with preparation H, anusol and other ointments). I applied it just like I Would on my piles and took diclo for the pain. The drug knocked me out and when I woke up the pain had gotten worse so I took to one of my moms piles pain remedy. 3 or 5 table spoonful of salt and hot water in a basin, then added cold water to make it not extremely hot (you don’t want to cook your bum). After I did a few dips just to get my skin used to the hot water then I sat in. It burns for a few minutes but eases the pain rapidly. I sat there until the water was almost cold. I could feel the abscess increase in size (it doubled in size) but with no pain. I applied the piles ointment again and I’m waiting for it to open up and drain itself. Let me know if this works. (I am repeating this remedy about 4 - 5 times a day until it bursts open).

I am a 27 year old woman who has regularly has cystic issues. Dermal, ovarian, behind my eye socket, the works. Surgery for all. Three years ago, almost to date, i got my first perianal abscess. Since then, every year, almost to the date every time, I have gotten another. As someone who cannot afford insurance or a $1000 trip to the emergency room every year, I wouldn't want to go back a ain this year when my abscess start again on Monday. Not to mention the pain of having it, let alone the excruciating pain I went through last time having the I&D, I was refusing to go back to a doctor. I ended up here looking for a home cure, despite seeing the many things online saying that an abscess needs to be handled by a medical professional. I saw the recipe for a home poulpice (a term I've never heard) made of equal parts coconut oil, turmeric, and baking powder along with 10-15 drops of tea tree oil.

Desperate to not go back to a doctor, I started applying the paste within a layer of gauze while I slept from Monday to Wednesday night, along with hot Epsom baths, I tried. It felt worse, like the mix wasn't working... come Thursday morning I was in horrible pain and went to an urgent care center.

When the doctor came in, I was in tears afraid of having another painful I&D, she went to look and see, and immediately mentioned that it looked as if it would pop on its own. I was ecstatic. She prescribed my augmentin for 10 days and after hearing of the poulpice I'd neen using, as as she thinks that it was working because after 4 days, it should have been ripe. She sent me home and said to come back if it got worse.

That night, I applied the same mixture, woke up to pee, in terrible pain (to where just sitting on the toilet had me in tears), removed the poulpice and went back to sleep with a maxipad on. When I woke up in the morning, I sat up with almost no pain. The abscess had drained on its own while I slept.

I'm not saying to ignore medical attention, especially since something home treated can end up worse, however for those who have done this numerous times, gone through so much pain from reoccurring abscesses, the recipe recommended further back, it worked for me and couldn't be more appreciative.

Though it's drained mostly, I am still applying the poulpice at night, and we'll as applying hot compresses so help. I also take a hot sitz bath (2 cup Epsom salt in hot water) after every bowel movement, when I can.

The burn described really wasn't anything compared to the abscess pain as described. That did scare me a bit, but it wasn't the pain I thought it to be.

The original recipe I saw was 3 tablespoons coconut oil, 2 tablespoons turmeric powder, 2 tablespoons baking POWDER (not soda) and 10-15 drops of tea tree oil. I never used that much, as it was unnecessary for one night and the remaining paste would dry and drain literally EVERYTHING. I just made a small batch every night of equal parts and wrapped it in a single layer of gauze, almost like a taco. I put it directly against the abscess with extra gauze padding outside to keep in, and then put in a heavy duty maxipad, just in case, and left in while I slept.

It got so much worse before it was better. Again, I will say don't avoid medical attention, even I paid to see a doctor, but it worked for me. I hope this helps everyone else too!

Here is my two cents since I promised myself to write a post if I got better. Over night developed golf sized abcess just next to anus on the right side but elongated so it mortified penis musceles too. Swelling got bigger and there was some bleeding. I had a case of hemmorhoides couple of months ago.

I stated googleing and got relly worried about surgery and long recovery. Then I found this site and first tried garlic+onio+apple cider vinegar applied with gause that burned for one hour. Next I would take a warm bath and try turmeric+tea tree oil applied overnight and sure enough: instant relief, swelling decreased overnight and became softer. It is still big, bu I can at least endure weekend and continue with the process since many of you say that surgery didn't help. Please share this, If you had this pain you know you owe it to sameone else who told you. And live more healthy in the future!

I can highly recommend using Magnesium Sulphate paste - available in your local pharmacy - and then after applying it liberally to the abscess, covering it with a plaster. I endured tremendous pain for a few days until it became too painful to sit down for any length of time, and even finding a comfortable sleeping position was close to agony. I read some advice on this website from other users who had used Magnesium Sulphate with success, and I decided to follow their advice (having tried many other remedies, tooth-paste etc... with no success). Applying the paste worked for me, so I can definitely vouch for it. It took about a day to for it to work properly, and at night the abscess eventually began to drain, followed by immediate relief. In any case, it worked for me, and I sincerely hope it works for anyone with the same pain!

For anyone reading this, I hope this helps.

I've struggled with diverticulitis and a reoccurring anal abscess that has nearly immobilized me at times. more than anything else, i have used PURE GRAPE JUICE with the best results. i use RW Knudsen, and i suggest you avoid anything with added sugar.... i use 'Just Concord' and for the second time, I have seen DRASTIC changes within 12 hours of drinking 16-24 oz of pure grape juice before bed. last night I was in searing pain, and I drank about three medium-sized glasses over an hour time before bed. i woke up with what felt like a LOT more pain and activity, but then in 'broke' this morning.

like everything, look into it yourself.. but there seems to be a huge amount of study on how grape juice cleanses/purifies the soft membrane walls of our body. nature is so cool.

i can't tell you enough how amazing this stuff is. i highly suggest CONCORD juice, and in it's purest form.

i've been a professional cook most of my life-- so i've been burned/cut a lot... i would never wish this kind of pain on my worst enemy. to anyone reading this, i sincerely wish you relief.

Hello everybody! I have some really exciting news that I have been waiting to share with you all. So if you follow this thread a couple weeks back you will find my previous posts on this matter. I too am battling a painful anal abscess; I know wholeheartedly what you are going through and it is terrible. On the last post that I did, which was in early May, I referenced some cell salts that I was going to try out. I wanted to give the tablets at least a month before documenting any success with them and so I did. I began taking the cell salts on May 6th--It is now July 3rd and I am doing soooo much better! I can't stress enough how terrible I was feeling just a few weeks ago, I stopped working and had to withdraw from the college semester.

Please, to anybody reading this: go on Amazon and search up "Silicea cell salts", they are sold by Hyland and are a homeopathic type of medicine. Don't just take my word for it, look through the customer reviews and read some of the testimonies. I was blown away when I read some of the stories on there and I was willing to try anything. After all, the antibiotics prescribed by my doctor had terrible side effects! Idk why pharmacies continue to give us these deadly medicines. The silicea cell salts are said to clear up boils and abscesses by pushing out all the infection and keeping it deflated. Now all I see down there is a pea sized cut where the abscess use to be.

Don't get me wrong, I still feel something down there that shouldn't be there but I am doing so much better. For all I know, the infection is still there internally--but I am just glad I can resume my normal life again without the unbearable pain I was under. I was so close to getting surgery but a surgeon that I saw told me about the risks and chance of recurrence and it made me really skeptical about getting the surgery. I'm glad I came across these, I am going to keep taking the cell salts and I'll keep documenting any changes I see.
