In brief: Depends on the size,

Duration, appearance and the source.
You need to rule out an abscess which at times may require drainage or antibiotics. Please see your primary doc for further workup. For the time being soak your bottom in warm bah tub. Put a dressing n it so it doesn't rub against clothes and avoid putting pressure on it when you sit down.
