Anal Furunculosis (Perianal Fistulas)

Anal furunculosis (or perianal fistulas) are deep unsightly sinuses that track through the skin, sometimes with flat open areas of ulceration. They are usually confined to the skin around the anus, but in severe cases they can spread as far as the flanks and run down the inside of the hindlegs. Technically they are NOT fistulas because they course only within the skin and do not open into another organ. Although they are near the anal sacs (scent glands) the sinuses do not connect with them, nor do they connect with the rectum or colon.

Sudocreme is a great cream for soothing the itch and discomfort of this condition.
