In brief: Chronic sinus

This could be either a pilonidal sinus or a perianal fistula.
Both conditions need surgical treatment. You should consider seeing a general surgeon or colorectal surgeon.

In brief: Likely fistula

Sounds like you have a fistula originating from an anal gland going to the perianal skin, need to see a colon and rectal surgeon ideally at a time it's draining.
