Hard swollen lump present on inner left buttock, skin on butt cheeks stuck together. Treatment?

I fear I might have several issues in my anal region. First up is a hard painful to touch swollen thumb sized lump on my inner left cheek. Secondly it looks like skin from my buttcheeks is stuck to each other slightly below the split of the cheeks. Causing my third and final problem, a tiny hole like cavity that hurts like mad.

Hello,
Welcome to healthcare magic
You seem to be having an abscess over your buttocks. You might require a course of oral antibiotics. Keep hot compresses which will decrease pain and help the abscess to point pus which can be drained. Consult your primary care physician for the prescription.
The other condition sounds like a pilonial sinus. You will need a surgeon's evaluation for it and it can be excised.
Hope this helped
Take care
