Deep rectal abscesses may be caused by intestinal disorders such as Crohn disease or diverticulitis. The condition affects men more than women. The condition may occur in infants and toddlers who are still in diapers and who have a history of anal fissures. Common symptoms are swelling around the anus and a constant, throbbing pain with swelling. Pain may be severe with bowel movements, Album), coughing and sitting. In infants, the abscess often appears as a swollen, red, tender lump at the edge of the anus.
The infant may be fussy and irritable from discomfort. A rectal examination may confirm an anorectal abscess. A proctosigmoidoscopy may be done to rule out other diseases. You may need stool softeners. Practice good hygiene. Eat soft or liquid foods until the untitled - Rectal Abscess Infection Discharge - Nocturnal Cunt Hunting Maniac (CDr has healed. Avoiding constipation will help decrease pain. Drinking fluids and eating foods with lots of fiber can also help.
With prompt treatment, people with this condition usually do well. Infants and toddlers usually recover quickly. Prevention or prompt treatment of STDs may prevent an anorectal abscess from forming.
Use condoms during intercourse, including anal sex, to prevent such infections. In infants and toddlers, frequent diaper changes and proper cleaning during diaper changes can help prevent both anal fissures and abscesses.

Sabiston Textbook of Surgery. Updated by: Debra Untitled - Rectal Abscess Infection Discharge - Nocturnal Cunt Hunting Maniac (CDr. Editorial team. After the individual has a bowel movement, the pain usually lessens. Other signs and symptoms of anorectal abscess include constipationdrainage from the rectum, fever and chills, or a palpable mass near the anus.
The condition can become extremely painful, and usually worsens over the course of just a few days. The pain may be limited and sporadic at first, but may worsen to a constant pain which can become very severe when body position is changed e.
Depending upon the exact location of the abscess, there can also be excruciating pain during bowel movements, though this is not always the case. This condition may occur in isolation, but is frequently indicative of another underlying disorder, such as Crohn's disease. If left untreated, an anal fistula will almost certainly form, connecting the rectum to the skin.
This requires more intensive surgery. Furthermore, any untreated abscess may and most likely will continue to expand, eventually becoming a serious systemic infection. Abscesses are caused by a high-density infection of usually common bacteria which collect in one place or another for any variety of reasons. Anal abscesses, without treatment, are likely to spread and affect other parts of the body, particularly the groin and rectal lumen.
All abscesses can progress to serious generalized infections requiring lengthy hospitalizations if not treated. Historically, many rectal abscesses are caused by bacteria common in the digestive system, such untitled - Rectal Abscess Infection Discharge - Nocturnal Cunt Hunting Maniac (CDr E. While this still continues often to be the case, there has recently been an increase in the causative organism being staphylococcusas well as the difficult to treat community-acquired methicillin-resistant S.
Because of the increasing appearance of more untitled - Rectal Abscess Infection Discharge - Nocturnal Cunt Hunting Maniac (CDr bacteria in anal abscesses, microbiological examination will always be performed on the surgical exudate to determine the proper course of any antibiotic treatment. Diagnosis of anorectal abscess begins with a medical history and physical exam.
Imaging studies which can help determine the diagnosis in cases of a deep non-palpable perirectal abscess include pelvic CT scan, MRI or trans-rectal ultrasound.
These studies are not necessary, though, in cases which the diagnosis can be made upon physical exam. This condition is often initially misdiagnosed as hemorrhoidssince this is almost always the cause of any sudden anal discomfort. The presence of the abscess, however, is suspected when the pain quickly worsens over one or two days and usual hemorrhoid treatments are ineffective in bringing relief.
Furthermore, any serious abscess will eventually begin to cause signs and symptoms of general infection, including fever and nighttime chills. A physician can rule out a hemorrhoid with a simple visual inspection, and usually appreciate an abscess by touch. Anal abscesses are rarely treated with a simple course of antibiotics.
In almost Album) cases surgery will need to take place to remove the abscess. Treatment is possible in an emergency department under local anesthesiabut it is highly preferred to be formally admitted to a hospital and to have the surgery performed in an operating room under general anesthesia.
Generally speaking, a fairly small but deep incision is performed close to the root of the abscess. The surgeon will allow the abscess to drain its exudate and attempt to discover any other related lesions in the area. This is one of the most basic types of surgery, and is usually performed in less than thirty minutes by the anal surgical team. Generally, a portion of the exudate is sent for microbiological analysis to determine the type of infecting bacteria. The incision is not closed stitchedas the damaged tissues must heal from the inside toward the skin over a period of time.
The affected individual is often sent home within twenty-four hours of the surgery, and may be instructed to perform several ' sitz baths ' per day.
These involve a small basin which is filled with warm water, and possibly with salts; usually fits over a toilet; and soaks the affected area for a period of time.
