What can I do? I am a male. Cecil

Welcome to ATD. Thank you for the query.
Your butt has been infected by bacteria. You can try to treat this by using hot fomentation. Hot fomentation will cause the opening of the wound and cause the wound to secrete the pus. Once pus is secreted, the wound is cleaned with Antiseptic solution.
Once the wound is cleaned, cover it with a bandage to prevent reinfection. If the wound does not heal, you may need Antibiotics for treatment. All the best. I wish you have a speedy recovery.
