What are the symptoms of perirectal abscess?

I beleive I have a perirectal abcess. I know I had one lanced over 10 years ago. It is located between my anus and testicles, slightly on my right buttocks cheek. It apeared over night. I am 38yrs old, 150 lbs, 5 8 tall. I have been living with UC for over 20years. I dont take any meds, but do control it by following a paleo diet. My question is, what type of physcian do it need to see to have this treated? I dont recall what type of doctor I saw last time this happened

Ok, infection and abcess would give the signs of infection and it would be hot and hurt. IT could be either from the outside in (like a boil) or from the inside out (UC). either way a general surgeon or a wound care physician would be urgently needed.
