Your symptoms arise suspicion of gluteal abscess. Usually causative factor is bacterial infection.

Treatment with antibiotics for infection and painkiller to relive pain would be helpful. If this fails to resolve, it is always suggestible get such abscess drained completely or else the nidus infection remains within the undrained portion and it can lead to recurrence.

I hope I have been helpful to you, Please ask if there are any doubts.

Thank you. Regards

You can take agumentin Duo and ibuprofen for this.
You can resume lighter work within two days of drainage and total work may be in a week's duration.
