Re: skin pain

It could be a cyst or abscess, or possibly just some irritated skin. If it is an abscess, you need prompt medical attention. Can you see it with a mirror? Do you have a fever? How long has this been going on? Is it painful to sit?

Re: skin pain

Okay, if it's been going on that long, it's probably NOT an abscess. Still, you should get it checked out. Call a doctor and make an appointment today or tomorrow.

Re: skin pain

Could be a fungal infection of the skin back there, I had it twice, hurts pretty bad. Doc can prescribe an anti-fungal creme and clear it right up.
