Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You probably have a pilonidal sinus which is infected. It requires dressing and antibiotic treatment. Surgery may be indicated according to the chronicity to close this tract. It is seen in hairy men commonly. Consult your Surgeon at a Hospital for the various treatment options and the best option for you.
