Suggest Remedy For Lumps In Butt

I've had a lump on the top of my butt crack for 5 days now. I started treating it with penicillin and it got worse. It's like twice the size now and hurts like hell!!! Not only can I not sit down properly but I can't walk properly especially up stairs!!

Hi! thanks for sharing your health problem with us!

After going through your description, I could understand that your lower back lump is recent, infective, resistant to penicillins and increasing or disabling....

Therefore, I would like to consider an infected pilonidal cyst or an abscess only!

You need to see a surgeon ASAP as there is infection by penicillin-resistant organisms and you need better/advanced antibiotics and after that surgical drainage of the abscess!

Hope you got the answer; regards,
I find this answer helpful
