Pimple near anus, quite painful during bowel / urinating movements

Recently, I had some pain during bowel and realized I had a small pimple like thing developed near my anal area.  At first, I thought it was hemroids, but didn't get any blood in my stool, nor during my wipe.  It's painful when I contract that area, but I didn't feel any lump near the opening of my sphincter.  This small pimple is near towars my tail bone opening, but still near my anal area.

I am afraid it being some kind of STD, as I had unprotected oral sex.  I tested for HIV, and came out negative.  Around this time, I had very minor body ache, and fever.  It's been about 3 weeks since.  I looked at STD pictures and it doesn't look anything like it.

What could it be?

What can I do?  Currently, I am on some antibiotics for my flu like symptoms.

Just wait and see if the antibiotics clear it up just like any pimple leave it alone if it's still there after a few weeks then toget it checked. As for hemroids that's a myth they don't have to bleed to be that it's only when there inflamed and irratated that they burst and bleed. Hope that helps take care medinabear.

you do not get anal soars from oral sex! it can be anything as such as a cyst or more likely a boil. go to the dr and get it checked out boils are a contagious  staph infection that can spread if it pops

well i know you said u had unprotected oral sex so since then have u asked the female to take an hiv and std test? if not get that done ASAP.

The fistula is linked to alot of bad things .Most anal fistulas originate in anal crypts, which become infected with abscess formation. When the abscess is opened or ruptures, a fistula is formedcauses of anal fistulas include opened perianal or ischiorectal abscesses, which drain spontaneously through these fistulous tracts. Fistulas are also found in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, particularly Crohn disease.[3] The incidence of fissures in Crohn disease is 30-50%. Perianal activity often parallels abdominal disease activity, but it may occasionally be the primary site of active disease.causes of anal fistulas include opened perianal or ischiorectal abscesses, which drain spontaneously through these fistulous tracts.

Perianal activity often parallels abdominal disease activity, but it may occasionally be the primary site of active disease.Anal fistulas also are associated with diverticulitis, foreign-body reactions, actinomycosis, chlamydia, lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV), syphilis, tuberculosis, radiation exposure, and HIV. Approximately 30% of patients with HIV develop anorectal abscesses and fistulas

OR IT COULD BE CAUSED JUST BY:
Passage of hard stool
Chronic diarrhea
Habitual use of cathartics
Anal trauma (can occur with anal intercourse or a rectal examination using a speculum or digit)

Most uncomplicated fissures--(fistula) resolve in 2-4 weeks with supportive care. Fissures that heal with conservative treatment have a recurrence rate of up to 27%. Chronic anal fissures frequently require surgical treatment.

Surgical treatment of anal fissures is associated with some degree of incontinence in 30% of patients. Prognosis for fistulas is excellent after surgery.

A patient with an anal fistula may complain of recurrent malodorous perianal drainage, pruritus, recurrent abscesses, fever, or perianal pain due to an occluded tract. Pain occurs with sitting, moving, defecating, and even coughing. It usually is throbbing in quality and is constant throughout the day. Pain occasionally resolves spontaneously with reopening of a tract or formation of a new outflow tract.

They told me to just keep an eye on it.  I'm just curious as to what window of clearance I'll have.  Could it be just a one time thing?  I hope so.  

I haven't seen any weird pus, since the packing, and no pain or particular odd feeling.  I guess, I have to just keep an eye on it?  This is a first for me, which makes me really conscious.  I've taken an HIV test, it came out as negative.

I try to keep the area clean, but practicing better hygeine.
