Sprain of bruise.: You might have bruised the pirifmis muscle or the gluteus maximus or minimus. Also, you ould traumatically injured your ischeal gluteal bursa, causing traumatic bursitis. Of course tailbone injuries are possible, but your problem should most likely improve within 2 weeks. I'd take Aleve (naproxen) two times daily. If the pain does not get better, see your doctor.

Could be: A few things. Might be an abscess, boil, pimple, skin infection. If it's getting worse, see a doctor. If it's not too bad, do some epsom salt soaks, try putting some polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) on it, wait a bit and see if it gets better on its own.

Pimple: This tender, bleeding lesion may be a pustule or small abscess from an ingrown hair or infected cyst. Try warm water applications, sterilize the surrounding skin with alcohol swabs or rubbing alcohol. Apply antibacterial ointment like Bacitracin. Place a gauze with paper tape. Soaks may allow some drainage of pus. See your physician if there is increasing tenderness, swelling or spreading redness

Sciatica shows up: Going from butt, to ankle and has a funny feeling of being 'stretched' but uncomfortable. Best if you can be seen by an osteopathic physician for evaluation, and treatment of your musculoskeletal system to determine the cause ; reduce pain. Your entire spine, hip, sacrum, pelvis, and extremities (arms/legs) will be evaluated, gait analysis too if it is sciatica, it can be easily treated.

See details: It is likely pain referred from the lower back but other possible causes are bursitis, tendinitis or rarely hip joint issues. Have the problem evaluated. Btw, tobacco use makes any arthritic process worse. Stop.

I fell pretty hard the other day and now my left butt cheek hurts. No bruise just pain, walking, sitting. Is it all muscle or is it broken bone?

Bruise, probably: If you can bear weight, it is probably just a bruise. Barring something really rare, it is pretty hard for a young person to break your hip or your pelvis in a simple fall from the standing position. If the pain is not a lot better in a few days, get an x-ray.

Abscess: Sounds like it could be an abscess which is in someways similar to an overgrown pimple. Seek treatment if it is large, deep or becomes severe. Meanwhile apply warm soaks and avoid the temptation to squeeze it.

Pimple or boil: This sounds like a standard pimple or boil, a minor skin infection. It is unlikely caused by something caught on a toilet seat. As for any pimple or boil, just leave it alone; it should come to a head and drain on its own in a few days. If it gets a lot larger, if there is spreading redness around it, or if you develop a fever, see a doctor immediatley. If in doubt, contact your own doctor.

Heat and see doc: That sounds like you have an infection. It may drain on its own if it is small or you may need to go see your doctor if it doesn't get better. There are some unusual infections in the neighborhood so see your doctor if it doesn't resolve soon or if it keeps getting larger or more painful. Heat in the meantime may help.
