anal abscess or hemaroid?

For the last one week I have been feeling a slight pricking session in my anus when I have been sitting. Today i conducted a self physical exam and on my right side i felt a boil. I am not sure if it is a hemorrhoid or a abscess.

I also had a week a boil on my shoulder and just finished 5 days of amoxil (amoxicillin) is a penicillin antibiotic) dosages was 2 tables of 500 mg each per day

there is not bleeding in my stool

A hemorrhoid is a varicose vein in the anal region rather than a boil.  

One treatment that may give you relief whichever it is is to do a sitz bath ( soak the area in a tub).  You could add Epsom salts to the water.
