Perianal fistula indicate that tract is well established There is a path for pus to come out Such fistula remain typically stable for long time What do you mean by stable? - Stable means that they do not give rise to severe spreading infection, they do not form new tracts, they do not cause aggressive disease The reason behind stability is that whether pus forms there is a opening through which it can come out, therefore it do not have chance to spread to new area. Besides there is a strong fibrosis present in the tract which is caused by our bodies immune reaction, the fibrosis acts as barrier for spread of infection Therefore, My approach to treatment is 1) Do not treat pus discharge with antibiotic, the pus discharge is benign and harmless 2) Use antibiotic only if there is pain and fever, which usually is absent in these cases 3) Treat them with surgical excision of fistula tract - Fistulectomy which give rise to lasting and permanent relief from symptoms

Antibiotics are an unnecessary addition to routine incision and drainage of an uncomplicated abscess. They have not been shown to improve healing times or reduce recurrence rate. Antibiotics should be considered for patients with high-risk conditions such as immunosuppression, diabetes, extensive cellulitis, prosthetic devices, and high-risk cardiac, valvular, and anatomic conditions
