Hello,

I can understand your anxiety.

This most likely suggests that there is infection in there. This region does not get much air and traps moisture, heat and bacteria - making it more prone for infections. Other possibility of fistula looks less likely.

I would suggest to wash it once a day - dry it completely and than put in some neosporin powder {as you are already doing}. If symptoms go worse or if there are associated symptoms like fever/ swelling/ sudden increase in pain than you will need to get a physical check up and may need antibiotic course.

Please do not worry, you will be fine soon. God bless
