I started having pain around the tailbone area and soon a small cyst had formed. Within a day it had more than tripled in size and was extremely painful. It burst after 4 days of pain, leading to a lot of blood coming out which was quite smelly. I went to a&e and was given antibiotics as infection was found in my blood but the area was not cleaned or bandaged which I found odd. It's 4 days later and the area is still bleeding, I've been washing it frequently with water.
What should I do? I am very worried it comes back as was extremely painful. I was dealt with very quickly as it was accident and emergency so I'm wondering if I should see my GP for advice? Is it likely he will recommend the surgery when I've only had the cyst form once? I've had pain in the area several times before but never a lump before.
Any advice/experience would be much appreciated!
