Dermatologist Dr. R.G. Joshi's  Response

Thanks for writing here.

Painful bump seems to be due to bacterial infection.

It occurs because of ingrown hair.

Start sitz bath .

You need to take antibiotics like amoxyclav and antiinflamatory drugs.

Avoid prolonged sitting in one place and frequent traveling..

Use loose cotton undergarments.

You can take laxatives at night till the infection is cured which will allow easy passage of stools.This will reduce pain.

Hope this will solve your query.Take care.
