I've been searching the whole internet on what is it that I have at the very top end of my buttcrack and all it gives me is a pilonidal cyst.
On september 13, 2017 , I sat all day long in front of my desk, studying for 4 exams for the next day. I finished at 1AM and laid down immediately in my bed to get some sleep but I suddenly felt tiny pain at my back. I thought it was only because of too much time i spent sitting and studying.
The pain was gone for several days but as soon as vacation started, the pain came back and 2 days later, a bump started to grow in that area. I had it checked at the hospital but I still haven't received the results yet. At first, the bump was felt internally but now, it's already seen outside and it's very painful that I can't even walk wihout waddling, and I haven't laid on my back since the pain started, only laid on my sides. So yesterday, I started taking antibiotics because my parents said so, I thought it would at least have it healed quickly.
Yesterday, it started oozing pus, it was very smelly and it was all over my underwear, the smell penetrated through my bedsheets, and I've never smelled this nasty before. Is this a good thing? The pus is more of a yellowish but also brownish when too much comes out. Sometimes, blood comes out too but it's 1/10 of the pus.
Until now, it's still leaking pus, so I wore pads inside my underwear to prevent it from spreading nasty odor around my room, my bed, and my clothes.
My main concern is,
1. I've been cleaning the pus until now with a toilet paper, is it safe to use toilet paper in cleanig the pus?
2. When will it stop leaking pus? Uni starts in three days, so I'm very worried that I'll be smelly at school, waddling like a penguin because of the pain that the bump gives.
3. As said above, classes will start soon so I don't have much time for operation. Any suggestions to take care of it at home?
I will be sharing updates about my ""bump"" every now and then, maybe, and I would like to hear comments from anyone who would want to help me. : )
