Hello and thank you for this question,

Fistula is a tube like tunnel connecting internal tissues that it should normally not connect.

Having fistulas is becoming more and more common now. Why would that be happing? There could be many reasons for that.

First, what is the most common cause of anal fistulas? The most common cause of anal fistulas is anal abscess, an infection-caused cavity that is brewing in the underlying tissues of the anal canal. Basically, the origin of it was an infection of some sort.

When the abscess bursts or opens up and starts draining it forms into a fistula when the fluid drains from it. Sometimes that fistula remains open even after the abscess was healed.

It's common to have fistulas with inflammatory bowel conditions like Crohn?s disease, diverticulitis, etc.

What can we do to take care of the fistula?
To me this question is the same as "What can we do to take care of Crohn's disease or other autoimmune illness that you have?" because that's where it came from.

You should start from the scratch: change your diet, get your adrenal glands to function properly, do some relaxation techniques, get a natural practitioner to help you with supplements and diet, etc. You can call my office to make an appointment with me for an individual consultation. We can do it over the phone or via Skype. Office number 1-800-557-8039

For meantime, I hope you took probiotics right after taking those antibiotics that can cause such disbacteriois (flora imbalance).

You should be on great quality professional probiotics most of the time anyway, but after the antibiotics you should be taking even larger doses of probiocts (at least a few different strands). You can order some probiotics from my Beneficial Products Page. Or you can call my office and order some probiotics as well.

I wish you great health!
