Woke up with fever, chills, & nausea. Why is there a knot near butt?

Friday morning I woke up with fever , chills, & nausea . The right side of my butt cheek was hurting. I went to doctor & he said I had kidney infection & sinus infection . She gave me Cipro. I didnt mention my butt bc I thought it was the psyatic nerve. Later that night, the pain was extreme. I have a large knot under the skin on the inside of my right butt cheek (crack). Size of an egg. No head, like a boil . Its Tuesday & it s still there. Heat helps some, but not much. I do not want to have surgery. I do not have insurance. What could this be?

Hi, many thanks for the query!
Well, it sounds like you are having abscess in gluteal region.
You should get physically examined by your doctor & if its an abscess, then there is no way out but to get it drained.
Regular dressing, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, antacids, Vit. C preparation with your doctor's opinion.
Also do- CBC, USG KUB, Urine (R/M), RFT.
Consult Urologist if reports are abnormal.
Wish you a good health.
Take care.
