Could tiny bump on buttcrack with red line towards the anus be a cyst?

I woke up the other day with a tiny bump on the top of my butt crack, with a red line rubbing down towards my anus, I m just wondering what it is. It doesn t hurt unless I apply pressure to the area. Is it a cyst? Or is there anything I can take to get rid of it?

Hi thanks for using HCM,
According to your complaint, it could be CANDIDAL INTERTRIGO. It is common problem due to sweat lodges on the natal cleft of your buttocks for long stand will produce this problem. It is one type of fungal infection.
1) Dip your both buttocks with anal area in Candys solution.( that is pottassium permonganate added salt in lukewarm water.)for 20 mts.
2).Apply miconazole, beclomethasone and gentamycin cream on affected area.
3) Tab Fluconazole 400mg at a stat and followed by weekly once 150 mg for 6 weeks.
4) Tab Ofloxacin 200 mg twice daily for 3 days.
to avoid secondary infection.
