Hi my name is AAAAA and on friday I noticed a knot on my lower back right in between my butt cheeks..its right where the butt meets the lower back..since friday it has gotten alot more painful. To the point where I cant even sit down without feeling pain. It is now monday and I still cant sit down and now its starting to hurt while walking. I am getting worried because it seems like its getting worse. Do you have any idea what tht might be? Or any suggestions on what I should do about it?

Hi, welcome to healthcare magic

It may be an abscess which is a collection of pus.Infections commonly occur in the gluteal region, some may occur secondary to an infected hair follicle which can then worsen.

You can try using warm compresses on it to encourage drainage but the definative treatment for an abscess in incision and drainage by a doctor. You may also require antibiotics.

I hope this helps
