HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern looking to the history given here if this is perianal abscess and not fistula is there and this could form the fistula later on if the abscess is reoccurring, in such case the abscess need to be open in pocket manner all the possible quadrant should be opened making a small flap all the pus should be drained and should be sent for culture sensitivity test, in this way forming of fistula can be avoided, hope this information helps you, take care and have nice day.
