hello - I hope someone can help me!
for the last couple of years I have had a weird skin sore just above my left buttock - it comes and goes once a year - usually when I'M stressed. I havent thought anything of it but this time its very very sore and has taken a lot longer to heal.
i cant get an appointment with my doctor for another week but wanted to know if there is anything I can do about it?
its about the size of a 10p piece and red, usually lasts about a week.
