Suggest treatment for a red bump near the anus

My Mother has a very large zit on her anis next to her butt hole. It seems to be getting bigger and bigger every day. I dont know what it looks like.... Im not brave enough to look at my mothers anis. She has looked at with a mirrer and says it looks real red. Do you have any suggestions for her?

Thanks for the query.
She might have developed furuncle.
These are deep bacterial infections.
Ask her to do hot fomentation.
This will help in reducing pain.
Treatment is with antibiotics but the choice of antibiotics should be based on culture and sensitivity tests.
Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
Let me know if you have any other doubt.
you can ask a direct question to me on this forum, following the below link.
Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
