Hi--can you tell me more please?
How long has it been there?
Is it very tender and painful?
Have you ever had something like this before?
No first time. It is sore. Came up yesterday
yes outside and about the size of a five pence piece
about the size of a five pence piece. Outside
OK, Then it isn't a haemorrhoid.
This is what's called a perirectal abscess and unless it comes to a head and drains on it's own you'd need to have a doctor drain it.
For now you can try sitz baths--soaking in a tub of warm water with Epsom salts in it for about 15 minutes three or four times a day. In between that you can applie an antibiotic ointment like Neosporin.
But unless this opens and drains on its own within the next two days you'll need to see a doctor about it
Let me know if you need any more information please
Is it possiable to drain it myself? Would anti biotic's get rid of it
Antibiotics would work? which? I'm in a difficult situation not in the UK and will be hard to see a doctor.
