Do You Have An Anal Fistula? Here’s What To Expect.

An anal fistula is a small tunnel formed from the inside of the anus or rectum to an external opening in the skin near the anus. The external opening near the anus is characterised as painful, red, inflamed, oozes pus and sometimes even blood. It is like a pimple that does not fully heal.

An anal fistula usually develops from a blocked and infected gland in the anus. It sometimes declares itself as an anal abscess which did not heal properly after treatment. Read More
