Thanks for posting your query.

From description, it seems your husband might developed bursitis (ischial bursitis) due to constant irritation of bursa.

I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. It might get aspirated and send for routine and microscopic examination under his/her guidance.

Meanwhile You can take Tablet Motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily).

Wishing you good health
