Brief Answer:
Possible pylonidal sinus

Detailed Answer:
HI and welcome. This sounds to me like pylonidal sinus and this is inflamed glands in intergluteal area. This is treated with small surgical procedure called sinus excision and this is permanent solution. Otherwise, it can be treated with local antibiotics and hygiene if there is no significant inflammation. WISH you good health. Regards
