Anul secretions of pus and draining
I have had a medical problem for over 1 year. I had a scope look at my intestines and this was not where the problem was coming from. Aparently there is a sist in the anul membrain and it secreates some pus after a period of time and if you pack it, you will get some draining onto the packing. I have tried to take antibiotics and this helps with the itching and the secreations but dow not cure the problem. If I insert packing I can feel a small lump like a sist, When taking antibiotics this lump is small and not noticable. Is there any kind of a supository I can use. I have no medical insurance at this time to go to a doctors office. There is no burning or problem passing waste. Please help if you can. Thank you.

Wavewater, the treatment of a perianal abscess is surgery. Taking antibiotics is seldom enough and there isn’t a suppository you can take that will work better than oral antibiotics. Good luck.
