I have a lump on my left butt cheek

Patient

Q: I have a lump on my left butt cheek it looks much like a scab with a bump what is it ?

Doctor

A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.

As per details, the most likely possibility for your symptoms is a condition of the skin called Furunculosis.
It is a bacterial infection of the skin involving the hair follicle and surrounding areas.
I usually advise my patients to apply a topical cream containing mupirocin 2 percent over the affected area in such cases.
Oral antibiotics may also be required.
Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you a prescription accordingly.
You can share my opinion with him.

I hope it helps.
Take care.
