Okay so I am unable to sit or lay down

Okay so I am unable to sit or lay down on my back because of huge pain in the top area of my butt crack, but it's more like 1.5 inches from the top into the crack. It started getting worse day by day. So I went to my doctor she said it was a huge abscess and that I need to take hot baths and antibiotics and to watch it just in case it starts to show pus. Did antibiotics for 3 days went back still not any softer so she could drain it. So she gave me a new antibiotic and told me to try it for 3 more days. But today I had my mother look at it and she says its turning dark, black. And that's because on my appointment on Friday it was more red than black. So was it just a bruise this whole time??? Or can abscess' turn black before draining???

I ve been having this stomach ache for a few days now and it kind of goes away for a few hours but then it will randomly come back. Especially when i am laying or sitting down for a while and when i stand up i feel like i need to throw up. It also sometimes feels like i am really hungry or something and so i eat but that doesn t really help.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...I ve experienced pain in my testes the past few days, it alternates between the left and right. It mainly comes when I m sitting or laying down. If I m walking around or standing I don t feel it. I can still play sports and not have any pain. Also, if I m distracted from thinking of it I don t feel it. I m concerned this is cancer. I ve checked for lumps but have found none. I am 18 years old, fit, and in good health

My lower left ribs push out a bit more than my right side. It feels almost like a pulled muscle or something pushing out. I ve had it for a little over a month at first it was inflamed and was maybe thinking i was fighting a bug, but now it feels like a strain and it makes my stomach feel uncomfortable and make gargling noises sometimes when i move it twitches moving around doesn t really effect it all that much. some times laying down or sitting a certain way makes it better or makes it worse.
