Thanks Friend for the reply.
So I presumed that with a healed fistula via lay open surgery or perhaps one with fistula plug or closed with antibiotics. A cord like scar will still exist underneath the skin. Unless the whole tract is being cut out which is quite impossible. So we will have to live with such a scar tissue under the skin forever? Or will it dissolve of soften over time?
I have what it seems like a fistula but does not have the usual symptoms mentioned commonly.
I have an abscess 1 inch away from the anus which was being treated wrongly by the doctor. I was given antibiotics and not drainage. In the end a hard painless lump remain and will not go away.
Until I tried to burst it last year with a tiny bit of pus and blood. I applied AB ointment for almost 5-6 months and the whole thing went flatten without any inflammation. Only a cord like internal scar underneath the skin. Externally it looks flatten and the cord like scar can only be felt when you press at it specically.
So long as I wash the anus with sitz bath after BM. It will simply remain like that. I dunno whether it is logical to keep washing the bum in sitz bath after a BM forever. Because I only wipe the anus with toilet paper previously like everyone else before I suffer from this abscess thing.
Recently I tried to press and feel the cord scar many times a day and it sort of swollen up. Stop it and it went back to normal within 3 days. Does constant pressure on scar tissue causes inflammation?
