Reoccurring cyst near butt cheek. Reason?

I recently had a nickel size hard nodule/ cyst under the skin near the inside of my butt cheek. I squeezed it and puss, fluid came out. Dr. put me on a course of doxycylcine (?). It has been about 4 weeks and it came back today. This time it squirted out bright red blood . I cleaned it with hot soapy water and but antibiotic ointment on it. What can this be and why I have I had 2 in a month in the exact same location? Help.

Hello dear,
you might be suffering from pilonidal sinus.
this is a very reccurent condition.
you need to get it drained by a surgeon, under proper antibiotic cover.
please dont squeeze it. this will spread the infection.

Feel free to ask, if you have further queries.

Wishing you a good health.

Thank you
