I have a warm, red raised lump on my buttock.

I have a warm, red raised lump on my buttock. It has a slight amount of serosanguinous fluid draining. It is slightly painful. It is not near the vagina or anus but on the inner buttock about 4-5 inches to the right and posterior to the anus. I have had it for 3 days. I have had this 2 times before in the same area, and it went away on it's own. However, this time it is slightly uncomfortable and has the slight drainage which I have not had before. It is very firm and about the size of a quarter or a little bigger. Do you think this is an abcess? I haven't tried warm baths or NSAIDS yet. What do you think it might be and should I try home remedies?

Hi there it looks like i have a red lump on my left side of buttox. It is red, swollen, feels warm, and it hurts when i sit and touch it. IT is forming a small white puss in the middle and ive had it for a couple of days now. Its a size of a pea, maybe a little bigger. What is it and should i worry?

I have a very large purple welt ─║ooking lump in my inner bum cheek. It is extremely painful. It has no head but is spreading so it s getting to the stage I can t sit down. It s there about 2 weeks. In the beginning it was a small red raised lump and went away I thought. It is very hot also.

i have a large lump in my left buttox its at the end of my tailbone. There is bruising and tenderness that radiates into my hip and lower back. It isnt like a boil as a matter of fact there are no signs of redness or warmth. Very painful to sit and lay down.
