  1. Hi. Looks like an anal abscess – probably perianal abscess. It needs to be drained by a Doctor. Should be OK afterwards. Usually caused by build up of pus from infected skin near anus. Doctor may decide to test for other conditions.

  2. Hi.
    From the appearrence it looks like an abscess, while it can also be a hair follicle infection causing pus formation..

    So my suggestion is to consult a Physician or a Proctologist and get evaluated.

    If it is ab abscess then it can be drained followed by a course of antibiotics like Augmentin and anti inflammatory painkillers like Advil.

    Hope this helps..

    Regards
