Brief Answer:
Please see a proctologist!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for the query.

It is best to see a proctologist. This will be helpful in assessing the distant end of the closed anal area for infections or any growths that might be producing these secretions. The treatment opinions would be guided by this.’

In the interim, I'd recommend sitz baths; Put 20cc of any antiseptic lotion into a bowl containing 1.5L of lukewarm water and sit in it 10-15minutes at least three times daily. This will help with the drainage/secretions pending evaluation and treatment.

I hope this helps. I wish you well and hope to hear back from you. Keep me updated, please.
Regards
