Strange Painful pimple-type bump on my butt


I've got a very annoying, and slightly painful (when pressed ) pimple type bump on my butt. It's not on my anus, rather on the cheek. I'm not sexually active, so its doubtful it's an anal wart. The pain is the same as if you had a large pimple and pressed down on it, not unbearable, but annoying, especially when you sit all day behind a desk. Visually it looks like a reddish nipple on my butt. Sorry for the bad description, but that's really what it looks like. It's just one, and doesn't appear to be spreading.

Here's what I'm wondering, is this something that will take care of itself? It's been here for less than 2 days, but would obviously prefer to use a home remedy than see a doctor.

Any idea's what this could be, and how I could treat it?

i'll bet it's a sebaceous gland around a around a hair follicle that's gotten clogged up.
you might be able to run some hot water on it in the shower then try to fold the skin so you can apply pressure from underneath it instead of from the sides or top.
pretty nasty but...
