I have recently discovered some type of bump in between my butt cheeks. It tends to be painful while sitting and walking for longer periods of time. Not sure what it could be or the cause.

From the location and the soreness that you describe i would suspect that you probably have a boil.. This is a limited skin infection.. You may have a little benefit to start applying NEOSPORIN PLUS three times a day. I would recommend that you have this checked tomorrow or soon as possible by your doctor. It may very well be that you could benefit from an oral antibiotic. Also possible that you could have developed a cyst under the skin which may need to be drained...
