This is quite embarrassing but the other day I noticed that I had a small lump on the rim of my anus.

I've looked at it and it is a sort of brown/grey colour. It is about the size of a pea and is quite uncomfortable when pressed.

It sometimes feels quite uncomfortable when I sit down for a while.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its infectious. You would need topical antibiotic like mupirocin or fusidic acid to combat this problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
