When a cyst is lanced and its contents are evacuated, the wound is typically left open to drain as in your case. Since some excised cysts can become infected, some surgeons elect not to suture and keep the skin open packed to prevent an infection. ...Read more

Why do I have a soft spot on my butt it feels like a hole covered with skin? Tjeres no discolaration, just a spot on my left butt cheek that is soft..
Need to examine:
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination. However, what you described may just be a dimple in the fat in the butt. If there are no symptoms, you may let it be. If you are overweight exercise and weight loss may help.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age. ...Read more
