Big hard lump above anus, very painful, blood, pus oozing out. How will it heal?

I have a hard lump about an inch from my anus that is about the size of a golf ball and very painful. I have been on vacation for a week and this developed while I was away so I could not call my doctor. It started to ooze a bloody filled pus mixture about four days ago but the hard lump may have gotten smaller but has not gone away. It is very painful and I cannot stand for more than a minute or so but the pain eases a bit when I walk or move around.

Hello,
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
This is a lump filled with pus call as PERI-ANAL abscess .
Reasons may be many but bacteria's type may be streptococcus, staphylococcal .
May be fistula ( less chances according to history of illness in query).
The ice pack massage , antibiotics,anti inflammatory drugs will help you.
Since you are on vacation , so take aceclofinac 200 mg controlled release tablets according to pain and swelling.
Rest is also good for you .
Lie in prone position , so it will not get inflammation any more.
Get in blood for diabetes after vacation.
Stool examination also important.
Good luck.
