So this is really embarrassing, but also extremely uncomfortable. I have a boil right by my bumhole. It hurts when I walk or sit down. I have had recurring boils here before but not as bad as this one. Google suggests that I need to see my GP, is that really necessary? Or will it heal on it's own? Advice appreciated!
