Hi,Customer, what you apparently have is an anal abscess .

The anus is surrounded by skin glands , when these glands become blocked and infected , the patient develops these painful lumps next to the anus .

You should consult a doctor immediately .

The doctor will remove with a needle the purulent fluid inside the lump and prescribe you antibiotics to treat the infection .

Do not wait , this needs to be treated immediately .
