Has anybody had an infection with a seton in? I have had a seton for a few years, but the last couple of days I thought I was getting an abscess around the opening because it was swollen and sore. I went to the ER to get it checked and they said they it didn't look like an abscess but was probably an infection, and they gave me antibiotics. I didn't think the tract could really get infected with a seton in, so I'm a bit confused. I'm seeing another doctor next week just to get it checked (just saw the on-call guy today), but I was wondering if this is normal.
