I have a bump like sore near my anus . (about a half inch to inch above) it doesnt bother me unless i wipe to use the restroom. Took a picture of it and looks bad. like my skin had broke and it look like actual meat showing where the skin was parted. It felt like a bump, but the picture i took look a little different. more meaty. swollena dn tender. do u have any suggestions. I had an ovarian cyst to rupture recently, would that cause any other cysts?

Hello dear
thanks for writing to us.
Bump or abscess in anal area is quiet common due to hairs and abundance of bacteria in this area.
Of these the most disabling is pilonidal sinus.
In this condition a large abscess is formed which rupture to discharge pus and sinus is visible as seen in your condition.
You need treatment with oral antibiotics.
Please meet a dermatologist.
According to me, it has no relation with your ruptured ovarian cyst.
Thank you
