Using spandex clothing while learning yoga. Had surgeries for perianal abcess. Due to wrong clothing?

26 yr old female was diagnosed with perianal abscesses. She has had 3 surgeries in 1 month. She wants to know where the abscesses are originating from. No diabetes , no Crohn s, not pregnant, No HIV/ AIDS ever. Blood work came back with no infection in her blood. She was spending 12 hours each day studying yoga and pilates . This includes spandex-yoga clothing (tight fitting) and lots of sweat with the exercising. Could her excersize lifestyle be the reason for these abscesses?

You did everything to findout what could be the cause of the abscess. Wonderful. As there are no abnormalities in diagnosis, the cause might be her clothing and sweat. Yoga is supposed to be done with loose clothing, to enable the body to have aeration as well as to be free.
Secondly, abscess can be formed anywhere in the body. Boils underneath the skin is called abscess. It occurs mostly out of tight dress and sweating. Recurring abscess can be treated with alternative systems such as homeopathy.
Good luck.
