There's a small bump at the tip of my butt crack and I did some reading and it says it could be a pilonidal cyst. What am I dealing with, is it deadly.

There's a small bump at the tip of my butt crack and I did some reading and it says it could be a pilonidal cyst. What am I dealing with, is it deadly.

Its a possibility: Dear THyunh, the location you describe makes a pilonidal cyst (PC) a possibility however, other more superficial reasons can give you a bump in that area too, like a simple sebaceous cyst among others. If it is a PC, know that it is not deadly especially at this early stage. You don't describe if it hurts or not or if you have seen discharge. More questions and exam or pictures would help. ...Read more

Recurring 3-8 months itchy bump butt crack/tailbone when wipe to keep dry painful, use hydrocortisone/lotrimin 2-4 week gone but returns what could be?

Hard to say: Your cream contains both a cortisone (which nonspecifically suppresses inflammation even from an infection) and an anti-fungal. Thus it is hard to tell as to which ingredient had worked for you. If this problem keeps on returning, it'd be wise to ask your doctor to check this out for you. ...Read more
