In brief: See your doctor for

antibiotic treatment & referral to a surgeon who will drain the abscess & likely pack it with gauze to keep it open & draining.
Although it may be from a different bacterium if it's close to your anus, Staphylococcus is the germ that usually causes skin abscesses. If not fully treated, a few "staph" bacteria remain & cause recurrence.
