Hi,

E coli is quite unusual for the germ there. It is a germ found in stool. First, getting rid of the germ with an antibiotic it is senstive to. Second, keeping the area dry and clean and third, the fistula really has to be removed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
