Hard boil like bump between butt cheeks near anus. It's a bit sore had a small white head but nothing came out and the lump is huge. Appeared in a day. What is it?

In brief: Pilonidal abscess

From your description, it sounds like it could be a pilonidal abscess that is forming.
You should have it checked out, as it may need to be drained.

or a peri-rectal abscess also needing drainage. BEst to see a colon and rectal surgeon sooner rather than later.
