What a good mum you have. it takes a special person to inspect and clean someone elses butt crack.
Hope it didn't turn out to be too major of a fix for you.

I've got a pilonidal sinus. I fell and landed on my bum, which they think tore some tissue inside, leading to the infection. The first time, it got so bad so fast, I was in hospital for a week and a half. After enough antibiotics to cure a small nation and an operation, I was let home, with a nurse coming daily to do dressings. It was 3 months before it healed properly. Please don't ignore it and let it get bad! They're easier to treat when they're smaller!!! All the best!

Me too. I've had to have surgery on mine. 42 stitches. Yep. And my poor husband had to pack to wound for close to 18 months - and still does have to, occasionally.
Please see a doctor or head to the hospital because they can become very nasty.
Hope you're feeling better!

My husband is getting his operated on next month. It's kinda gross but they have 3 sorts of procedures they do on them, he is going for the most invasive one which is most likely to work and doesn't involve me packing it for him. Def see a dr, would be better to go to ER though as you are more likely to get it looked after urgently than going on a waiting list if your not private.

Thanks girls, I'm finally going to my doctor in half an hour, it's gone down but still there and thankfully no longer weeping.
For those that have had them, other than the lump are there any other symptoms?
And to the PP, yes my mum is awesome coming over and cleaning up my bum like she did haha.

My DH's one is sore, his has been troubling him for years but you know men and their pride.. When it flared up it gets to a point that it releases fluid from the top.. His is like a raised line above his crack into his crack. Once it has released it's normally ok for a month or 2 then comes back and gets angry again.

Thanks Monster. Sounds like mine, except it came to a head and exploded so quick.
Just returned from doctor who has put me on antibiotics and if it doesn't go down I have to go see a surgeon
Thanks again for everyone's replies, I probably would of left it if it wasn't for hearing how serious they can become.
