What causes yellowish pus formation around anal area?
Its an abscess. It must be drained.
Thank you for the query.
You have an abscess in this location. The trace of pus and the pain clearly indicates that. Most common reason of an abscess in this location is bacterial infection of the skin glands. However in some cases it can be a sign of inflammatory bowels disease. If so, you should have also loose stools with blood and mucus.
The only treatment for the abscess is its incision and drainage. You have to consult proctologist or general surgeon as soon as possible. If you leave it like that, it can turn into a fistula and lead to chronic problems.
Hope this helps. Feel free to ask further questions.
can i take tylenol for the pain if the pain comes back because I was shopping I was waiting in line and the pain on a scale of 1 to 10 was about 8 I thought I was going to pass out
No cancer for sure.
No, no sign of a cancer at all. No doubt in that. Biopsy is not needed. Cancer usually does not give pus leaking.
You can take Tylenol. But its just a temporal solution. Incision and drainage is unavoidable.
