Hello,This is likely a small abscess or infection with some bacteria in it. Opening it up and draining it is the treatment. The only issue is keeping it clean due to the anatomical location. You can now use Sitz baths or epsom salts which are available at the pharmacy. If you have fevers or chills, then you need oral antibiotics. Be cognizant of tight clothes and sweating around the area. Tylenol should be good for the pain. Best of luck.
