What is a Perianal Abscess?

A perianal abscess is an infection on the surface of the anus. It often appears like a bump filled with pus and can cause serious pain and discomfort.

A perianal abscess may also be referred to as an anal (rectal) abscess. If left untreated, the infection can spread and cause complications.

In some cases, perianal abscesses can become extremely painful and may cause serious trouble if they persist long.

Symptoms of Perianal Abscess:

  1. Swollen and inflamed bump,
  2. Throbbing pain,
  3. Pus-like discharge,
  4. Bleeding,
  5. Painful bowel movement

What causes Perianal Abscess

These include:

Infected Anal Fissure: An anal fissure refers to a small tear in the anal canal’s tissue lining. If an infection occurs in the fissure, it may lead to perianal abscess.

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs): Carrying out unsafe sex, meaning without using condoms can elevate the possibility of catching bacterial infections. The infection can spread to form perianal abscesses.

Perianal Abscess Risk Factors

There are certain conditions that can elevate the chances of developing an anorectal abscess. The risk factors can be divided into modifiable and non-modifiable. This includes the following

Perianal Abscess Risk Factors

There are certain conditions that can elevate the chances of developing an anorectal abscess. The risk factors can be divided into modifiable and non-modifiable. This includes the following:

Modifiable Risk Factors: Persistent Constipation or Diarrhoea:

In constipation, the stool hardens due to the infrequent bowel movements. This causes difficulty in stool passing and a patient may develop anal fissures. The fissure can become infected to cause a perianal abscess. Frequent and watery stools in diarrhoea can lead to irritation and inflammation of the anal lining. It can further trigger the formation of perianal abscesses.

Traumatic Injury:

Anal sex can put excess pressure on the anus and lead to a fissure. The bacteria can affect those areas and can eventually cause anal abscesses. Placing objects like sex toys in the anus can also increase the risk of an infection like an abscess.

Sebaceous Cyst:

Cysts that form when the sebaceous (sweat glands) get clogged are called sebaceous cysts. Such cysts can further form into a perianal abscess but may be less painful and less infective.

Diabetes:

In people with diabetes, the wound-healing process slows down. So, it increases the chances of the infection spreading due to a perianal abscess.

Immunosuppressive Drugs:

Such drugs suppress the immune system’s normal functioning. Perianal abscess is an infected condition and your body needs to fight off the infection to get rid of it. A weakened immunity will restrict the proper healing of this condition.

Non-Modifiable Risk Factors

Male Gender:

Men are more likely to develop this condition as compared to females of the same age. It commonly occurs between the ages of 20 and 60.

Fissure History in Kids

Toddlers and children that have a history of anal fissures are likely to develop perianal abscesses later in life. This is generally because of chronic constipation. A perianal abscess can also occur in infants due to diaper usage. If not cleaned properly, it can make the stool stay there longer.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD):

IBD conditions such as Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s Disease are inflammatory conditions that can occur anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract. Inflammation in or near the rectum can increase the risk of developing perianal abscesses.

Diverticulitis:

In this condition, the digestive tract develops small pouches which can become inflamed and infected. This infection may spread further and increase the risk of an anal abscess.
