I am a sixteen year old female, and have been having trouble with medical issues for the past couple of years. Eventually I self diagnosed myself with celiac and the doctors agreed, so I've been off gluten for about half a year.
But about a month ago I developed a sore right on my tailbone, about the size of a fingernail...it was a bit painful to sit directly on it and itched occasionally. But just today, I went swimming and a few hours later, the sore was bleeding. I don't know if I sat down too ******n something and just broke the skin on it, or if this sponatenously happened...if anyone would know what this is, that would be great...
The only medication I am on is Alesse (a birth control medication) to help with my acne
