Re: Anal fissure near anal, but towards spine area?

Fistulas happen for some by fact of an autoimmune disease. I have a friend who has fistulising Crohn's.

The also happen because of inner abscess and seek a way out to relieve the pressure. They develop an inner lining, so in essence, it's burrowing through the tissue but creating/leaving a permanent trough.

If you say something burst, that would be a probable abscess, and if it's possibly from the original one, it's still there an has developed a fistula to the outside of the skin.

You need to see a doc to determine if you indeed have a fistula, or if it's another cyst/abscess and no fistula, just that it's close to the skin and has burst, emptying itself.

I don't think sitting has caused it, but if it's another cyst/abscess, hopefully it can be cleared out..never to return. But sitting would definitely put pressure on that area.

Hope you can get in with the doc asap.
