Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
You may have a pilonidal cyst or abcess. This is an infection in a hair folicle in the cleft between your buttocks. They can be very painful. They usually respond to antibiotics if they are infected. Occasionally they become badly infected and require surgery to drain them.
