Open wound near anus, looks like a sore on examination. Cause of worry?

I just recently noticed a open wound just past my anus . It looks like a deep whole but in fact is not that deep at all. When I pull my buttochs aparts the small wound ends up looking like a sore about the size of a pencil eraser. What is it? I have googled it and have not see a single picture that looks like what I have. Im really freaking out here

Hello and welcome
The opening near anus is mostly a fistula if it is discharging. The discharge may be a clear fluid or a pus. Other possibilities is that it may be a sinus infection or a superficial wound which can be treated by the use of a oral antibiotics or antibacterial cream application.

Feel free to consult your doctor and your doctor will tell you by clinical examination that what treatment is best for you and what precautions you have to take in future.

Hope this will help you.
Best Wishes and get well soon
