In brief: See your doctor

Pain and high CRP can sometimes be related to an abscess.
For this you may need hospitalization. But it can also be related to a fistula. For this, Remicade (infliximab) and antibiotics are often the treatment. There are other possibilities. See your doctor for evaluation.
