Okay, my butt really really hurts right now. It hurts to stand/sit/do much of anything.
It started Sunday morning, when I went downstairs to change my diaper and realized there was a little zit or whatever bubbling out on my coccyx (the tailbone, right between the butt cheeks, towards the top). At first, I my mind jumped to three things: acne, diaper rash, and tumor.
I can rule out diaper rash because I've been really good about using a ton of powder and vasoline every night, and I don't think a rash would bubble like this. I'll rule out tumor too, because that was just the extreme example of what a lump could mean in my mind.
It wasn't very painful at first. So, I resolved to let it go a couple days, play it careful, and see how things went. Well, last night it started to ache kind of bad. Today, I worked a whole shift with it, working a register. At the end of the day, I could hardly walk or sit, and had a really rough time driving back home, because I had to sit on that part of my butt a lot.
Now it's still not feeling great. I have a doctor's appointment scheduled for Friday morning now, to find out for sure what this is. However, I took a quick look on Google just a minute ago, and have come to the conclusion that I may have a pilondial cyst. Yay. A Google Images search
So, I put on a diaper as usual, deciding not to break my routine (plus add some extra padding to a very uncomfortable region, a plus), but I'm wondering if I'm doing the right thing. If this is infected, I don't know how much I should be exposing this to bodily fluids, powder, vasoline, and such.
Anyone on here have any experience with this? Of course, I'm not looking for doctor's advise here, but any suggestions? Thanks.
(PS, somehow I feel the need to apologize for posting this, lol. Should I have not sworn in the topic spot?)
