In brief: Another opinion

Perhaps you need to see a general surgeon or a colorectal surgeon? You could have an abscess around the anus that is due to a tract coming from the bowel.
There could be a deep seated abscess otherwise and surgery would be indicated to excise it or drain it more appropriately. I would not hesitate to get another opinion. You may need imaging and other testing to find out what is going on.

In brief: Skin soreness

Obviously your condition has not been effectively cured to date, despite the attempts of probably good doctors.
This is not a condition that can adequately be evaluated by an internet question and answer. Recurrent abscesses are localized infections and this can be difficult to treat. Ingrown hairs and cysts can be inflammatory conditions, including congenital pilonidal cysts.
