A Rare Problem Fistula Can Impact Your Daily Life
Let’s Understand Fistula
The fistula develops near the anus creating a tunnel connected to the anal canal. This fistula is a result of an infected internal gland that develops pus. It is painful but the draining of the pus reduces the pain and leaves some infection behind which can again develop into another fistula, if not cured.
Fistula doesn’t heal itself. That’s why it is necessary to seek medical care to prevent the recurrence of the infection.
The Underlying Causes Of Fistula
The human body structure has some internal glands. These glands often get clogged due to bacteria, faeces and other external matter that leads to infection. If the infection is serious, it causes pus which is very unpleasant.
Apart from clogging of the internal glands, fistula can also occur due to some medical conditions like Inflammatory diseases of the intestine, trauma, tuberculosis, a complicated anal surgery, hidradenitis suppurativa (a skin disease that causes pus), Diverticula (small pockets developed in the lining of the large intestine), Cancer and its treatment can also lead to an infection that causes fistula.
