Thanks for your question
Are you sure its not from your anal canal?

Ok so its near tail bone
since how long you have this?
it comes and goes every so often but when it comes it can last for a week
And you get pain while sitting also?
have you seen doctor for this?
do you feel swelling over there?
no i have not. i just put some neosporin on it and i can feel a tiny hole
Well this is a pilonidal sinus most likely
Its a favourite site for this
and presents like you are having
You need to see a general surgeon or initially your local doctor for this
you may need antibiotics for this initially
however there is nothing serious
putting neosporin is good till then
can it be curing with antibiotics because i am a very big chicken when it comes to doctors
apply some antiseptic over it
but sometime if it keep recurring then surgery
and what kind of surgery is it?
its a surgery to remove the sinus tract and material inside it and then repairing the defect with local flap
however surgeon will decide depending upon its extent
what do you do?
what do you mean what do i do? occupation?
im an engineering student
ok fine , avoid sitting for long
because this predisposes
try to get frequent breaks
ok...should i go see a doctor tomorrow so they can have a look at it and prescribe me anything or is neospring good for now
neosporin is ok for now but antibiotics per oral are required but neosporin doesnot penetrate deep
so anything else in your mind?
so i shouldn't be freaking out too much?
nothing to worry
ok so i do not need to see a doctor right away?
right away means not now ofcourse
well like tomorrow at the clinic
whenever possible like in few days
