Try googling "pilonidal cyst" and see if anything you read is familiar or similar to what you have.

Hello,
The symptoms are suggestive of pilonidal cyst. In this the skin becomes reddened or even sometimes looks like a small bruise)When it is infected,it causes pain.Antibiotics or surgical drainage may be required. So my sincere advice is to get an evaluation done from a surgeon and get it evaluated.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
