Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

One possibility is that you have a Pilonidus cyst. This is a cyst that occurs near the anus and sometimes becomes infected with trapped hair in the anus.

You need to see a Doctor to remove the cyst. Also, you may need antibiotic treatment if you have a fever.

Hope this helps you. All the best.
