heat boil in butts very painful
dr. XXXXXXX here
Please proceed with your query
for past 3 days i got a painful heat boil in my butts
i have broken the tip on the 1st day itself
Do you have fever?
pain while sitting and walking
even cloth rubbing creates pain
Is there any pus discharge from the boils?
but since i have broken the tip, there is a slight blood clot
and the top skin layer peels off slightly
By your description, I suspect you are suspect you might be developing gluteal abscess
This is a condition which needs prompt medical/surgical treatment
what causes this?
You should visit a surgeon and get it examined to see for the severity and the satge it is in
It is caused by bacterial infection.
poor hygiene is the main cause for bacterial infection in this area
so you should keep this area dry and clean all the time
any home remedies?
No, I'm sorry
You can not do any home remedies in such cases
It is always advisable to consult a surgeon for this
but will it end up in surgery only?
because at times a small surgical procedure might be needed
or can be remediated by antibiotic
okay.. is it a complicated surgery?
if it is in the early stages of forming an abscess, it can be cured with antibiotics
it appeared overnight
no, the surgical procedure is called incision and drainage
and it is 3 days back
to assess the stage, it needs to looked at and also palpated

i will go to a doctor tomorrow
have a good day.. bye
Is there anything else you would like to ask
no that's it
Thank you for consulting me, Have good day
