Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Sorry to hear about this

You should have Sitz bath

You should also take an anti-inflammatory like Nurofen

Hopefully that will help in easing out your problem

If that does not get any better in a few days then you will need an antibiotic

Please do let me know if you have any other question

I guess that this will be solved by talking the antibiotics and I will follow your recommendation but what should I do if next month I have the same problem?

In that case if it occur again then you must see the doctor as at time it can need a surgical excision

Please do let me know if you have any other question
