My son was complaining for about 4 days about when he used the rest room he would have blood on his tissue. Also complained a bit about it hurting to sit. So after the 4th day took him to doctor. He told the doctor he had noticed blood on his toilet paper for the last couple months (I was so mad at him) He did not think he needed to tell me because he has always had issues with hard bowel movements and just figured he would drink his metamucial and it would stop. Anyway after doc exmination she found a small Pilondial Cyst on the very bottom of his tail bone right before the anus area. She started him on medicine and also took a wound culture to check for staph infection. Well after a long week of meds twice a day and sitz's bathes with epson salt he has become more and more in pain. He yells while trying to sit hurts when having a bowel movement and had complaned about his boxers being stuck to him in the morning. He has had no fever byt still has blood on toilet paper. Sometimes alot sometimes a little. So I finally convinced him to let me look at the area. Now I was not in the exam room at doctors office with him because he is 18 years old and have no idea what I am looking for. Well I ended up finding several small ares of hair stuck together from drainage so I had him take a trimmer and cut the hair around the area. I then relooked and still really did not know what I was looking for but noticed a small what look to be a hole near the end of his tailbone but also for several more hole looking things on the flat part between the start of his butt crack and where the other hole looking thing is doctor found. So I had no idea what the doc saw and what I was looking at. I did clean area with medicine and he screamed in pain when I would put any pressure on the area. Called doc today and she said time to see a surgen. He can't get in for a while and I am concerned because of the level of pain. He really never complains about anything so I know he hurts. What can I do to help him? What are the little whole looking things? Also for the past 24 hours he keeps saying he feels like something is poking him in his Butt when he sits down or moves a certin way. Is that normal?? Should I go to an ER or will it just be a exam some pain meds and a follow up with a general surgon? Which I can make appointment and wait for without all the money spent on ER exam? I just am worried and really not sure what to do. Anyone have answers for me??
