I have discomfort when I sit down. It feels sore and when I pulled the cheek to the side blood came out and appear to have a small split in the buttock area
oh those happen. Small infections or skin tears. They heal by themselvs MOSTLY, but can have significant infection that can travel DEEP in and not be visible.

So, prob requires (1) physician visit a tear in the buttock area.
