Other reasons are an infected anal fissure and a sexually transmitted infection. Natural medicines are also helpful in treating the tendency to have recurrent abscess around the anus. Myristica, Silicea and Hepar Sulph top the list of homeopathic medicines for anal abscess.

Some risk factors for anal abscess include diabetes, colitis, IBD – inflammatory bowel disease (including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), anal sex, using medicine like prednisone, weak immunity, diarrhea, constipation, and diverticulitis.

Homeopathic Medicines for Anal Abscess

Homeopathy has a very effective solution for cases of an anal abscess. With the use of these medicines, surgery can be entirely prevented to bring about effective recovery. Homeopathy medicines help relieve the pain of abscess and hasten the process of pus formation and its subsequent discharge.

1. Myristica – Effective Medicine for Anal abscess

Myristica is a natural medicine of plant origin. It is prepared from the gum extracted from the bark of a plant named Myristica Sebifera. The natural order of this plant is Myristicaceae. It is used to treat an anal abscess and is considered in the first line of treatment in homeopathy. Myristica helps bring about speedy recovery from an anal abscess due to its tendency to hasten the suppurative process. It helps shorten the recovery period and resolve the problem quickly. Apart from an anal abscess, Myristica is also a top listed medicine for the treatment of anal fistula.

2. Silicea – Effective Remedy for Pus Discharges

Silicea is a natural treatment for treating many suppurative (pus-forming) conditions including anal abscess. It is considered in cases where pus discharges are present in cases of an anal abscess. The pus may be highly offensive in nature. Silicea helps bring about quick discharge of pus and clears out the abscess. Silicea is also used to treat indurations (hardness) that are left behind following an anal abscess (in some cases). This remedy also helps in cases of anal fistula where there is an offensive pus discharge. In such cases, the area around fistula opening is hard, swollen and bluish red.

3. Hepar Sulph – Natural Medicine for Painful, Tender Anal Abscess

Hepar Sulph is an effective remedy for painful, tender anal abscess. The pain in the abscess may be throbbing, beating or stabbing in nature. In some cases, splinter-like pains may be present.

The abscess is also tender to touch. The person may also have a fever, along with the above symptoms.

6. Causticum – For Perianal Abscess that is Large and Painful

Causticum is indicated in cases of a large, painful boil near the anus. The boil discharges pus, blood, and serum. It may be highly sensitive to touch. Itching around the anus may also be present. It is also recommended in cases of anal fistula where there pain and pulsation is felt in the perineum.

7. Merc Sol – Where there is a Putrid Pus Discharge

Merc Sol is a natural remedy for treating an anal abscess. It is used in cases of anal abscess when the pus discharge is thin and green in color.

After removal of the packing, this has no healed at all and is now giving me more problems. It routinely covers over and within days opens and drains again. Currently it feels rae and a bit soar but is again draining. I’ve taken silicea but that is all. I’ve used tumeric, coconut oil, and few types of essential oils. All only work temporarily.
