Hello,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

The description of your symptoms is pointing towards bacterial infection of hair follicle known as furuncle. It is caused by Staph.aureus bacteria. But the confirmation is needed by physical examination by a physician. Mean while you can continue using topical amoxicillin or ampicillin preparations.

If you need any further clarifications, please write back.

Welcome back,

The main differentiating points between anal fissure and hemorrhoids is, patient experiences severe tearing pain like a knife cutting inside during passing stools in case of anal fissure. Anal fissure is commonly seen in patients having constipation.

In case of hemorrhoids dilated thread like enlarged veins appear during straining for stools and patient feels discomfort to sit for a long time.

In your case there is less possibility of both, but I advise you to go through clinical examination for confirmation because directly seeing the condition of the problem gives better clarity about diagnosis of your problem. So consult a general surgeon

Welcome back,

Your presentating symptoms are consistent with the possibility of staph.aureus infection i.e. a furuncle. Sitz bath gives you good relief; but infection and the pus formation can't by controlled by this.

You can try topical antibiotic preparation like neosporin on the affected area. I would also suggest you to take oral antibiotic. Oral antibiotics are prescription medications and your local doctor can prescribe this to you. Paracetamol thrice a day can be taken for pain relief.

Hope this helps. If you need any clarifications I can provide you,

Regards,
