Perianal abscess: This is most likely a perianal abscess. You can think of it sort of like a pimple. It's basically a gland that gets clogged and then infected with bacteria. Don't worry, it usually doesn't have anything to do with hygeine. Try sitting in a warm bath with epsom salts to help soften up the area. If it gets worse, sometimes it needs to be surgically drained. ...Read more

I have been suffering from quite a bit of pain in my right buttock since last Friday after receiving an IM injection there.

Possibilities: Any time the skin is penetrated, there is a chance that infection can develop. We are trained to use care to minimize this risk, but it can still occur sometimes. Assuming the injection was properly placed (the upper-outer quadrant of the buttock) the remaining possibilities include (1) local irritation from the medication itself and (2) infection. Heat and redness indicate infection. ...Read more

Had intramuscular injections in buttock on fri. Pain is radiating down leg. Never had this problem before. No redness. Hard to walk.

Shot in butt: Well this is interesting - firstly if the shot was done right then we have to assume its due to swelling and perhaps some bleeding putting pressure on nerve.
