Hello. I keep getting...

Hello. I keep getting this reoccurring small lump/bump in my perineum area. It is painful, but doesn’t look like a sore. When I urinate, that are gets extremely painful. What is it?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

The pain remains as long as the lump/bump is there. Bacitracin or triple antibiotic ointment helps the pain tremendously

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Had a partial hysterectomy in 2016

The lump/bump is not on my labia, it is in between the anus and vagina

It happens maybe once every two months. I have no past illnesses and I’m not on any medication. I’ve been checked for all STD’s and I’m negative. I take Tylenol for pain
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I’m not calling!

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
This can be an infected follicle.
Bacterial infection can be there.
You can now apply warm moist compress over it.
You can soak a towel or gauze in warm water.
Then you can compress it over the bump.
Sitz bath can be helpful.
This consists of sitting in warm water for 10-15 minutes.
It can be repeated several times.
That would aid in healing.
Antibiotic cream like neosporin can be applied.
It is available OTC.
Neosporin would fight pus producing bacteria.
Those would help in most cases.
If it grows larger, I would advise to get it checked by doctor.
Oral antibiotics or prescription grade ointment can be needed.
For pain, anti inflammatory analgesic like Motrin can help.
Please take it after food.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
