Brief Answer:
MRI helps the best

Detailed Answer:
The pictures apparent looks like fistula in ano.
Another possibility of a pilonidal sinus can be considered.
I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Per-rectal digital examination, ano-proctoscopy as well as colonoscopy and biopsy.
MRI of the area helps in further diagnosis, its extent and thus plan of management.

i am a 33 year old mother of 3 and while I was pregnant with my third I noticed I started getting itchy in my butt area. I thought it might have been caused by all the weight I gained some how and it just seemed like extra sweaty but when it didnt stop after giving birth and losing a few pounds I also noticed that it was accompanied by clear or whitish mucus or puss like leakage. I googled a few things and came across Pilonidal disease that seems to fit but im not sure and I dont know whether to go to my regular dr or my gyne.

i have just been diagnosed with a pilonidal cyst which has burst. I have been on penicillin for almost a week. Although it is healing well, I am not sure how much time to take off work for it to heal properly as my job entails sitting for lengths of time and at the moment I cant do that. How long does it normally take to heal?

my son is thirteen and has been having a discharge from his left nipple which now looks bloody. He is due for surgery for a pilonidal sinus soon. Are these conditions related in any way - maybe by puberty? More importantly, does he need to see our doctore about nipple discharge. Thank you
