Hi, about 6 month ago I got a lump on the right side of my bum just to the side of my anal passage, it was very sore and itchy but for the last few months it seems to have broke the skin and it bleeds from time to time and it has also come to a head a few times and fluid had come out, it just doesn’t seem to be healing so what do you think I should do??
it seems to be a para-anal sinus. This usually starts as a bump in the area surrounding the anal region, and then at one stage, it breaks open. The discharge and bleeding that are coming out of the wound are signs of remnant infection somewhere deep inside the area. You should consult a surgeon and get necessary investigations like sinogram done and start on proper antibiotics and ointments.
THIS MAY BE DUE TO A BOIL OR FURUNCLE THAT MAY HAVE BE BURST OPEN DUE TO OVER ACCUMULATION OF DEBRIS INSIDE IT. YOU NEED TO SEND THE DISCHARGE FOR MICROSCOPIC EXAMINATION AND AS PER THE REPORT APPROPRIATE ANTIBIOTICS CAN BE STARTED.
PREFERABLY BROAD SPECTRUM ANTIBIOTICS MUST BE TAKEN
