Hello, as you can guess i probably have PS. well, i have all telltale signs. i had a boil in above in my (pardon me) butt crack (left and a bit above of my tailbone) about 2 years ago that was oozing and was a bit painful but it has gone away shortly afterwards. I thought it was nothing and that i got it because i sit a lot in my line of work (computer technician). Then some 2-3 months ago boil came back at the same place but it has also gone away in some time. This time i got curious a bit and soon discovered about PS. Anyway, right now i don't have any problems relating to it. boil is gone but i've noticed that the skin where the boil was, is black (black patch 1cm diameter,like you get after an ingrown hair) and below it are 2 small blackish holes. It doesn't hurt or feel uneasy (ok maybe there is a bit of discomfort today because i was poking at it) and there is no discharge that i can notice. I would like to ask your opinion do you think that this is PS and should i be worried? Should i go to the doctor or should i just keep up good higienne and let it be? I don't really want to go to surgery unless i have to (it'd be hard taking so much time off and everything) but i'm a bit scared when i read that PS when untreated can even lead to cancer so now i'm a bit out of my wits... What do you think i should do? Thanks for every answer!
