Pus at Anus : Anorectal abscess

An anorectal abscess is a painful infection that occurs in the tissues surrounding the anus and rectum. Symptoms include severe throbbing pain in the anal area, fever, chills, constipation, and a palpable tender mass near the anus. The condition can become extremely painful and worsen rapidly over a few days. An unruptured abscess left untreated can lead to serious systemic infection. Treatment usually involves surgery to evacuate the pus and clean the abscess cavity. After surgery, the patient may experience relief of pain and may need to follow up dressings to ensure complete treatment. Fistula development needs elective procedure at the later date.

It's important to seek medical attention if you suspect to have an anorectal abscess.
