    Hole where a cyst used to be

    Hello, the past few days I had some sort of cyst or pimple between my scrotum and my anus. Sometime earlier it seems to have broke open and drained, with what I could I removed the sack as best as I could leaving a hole in the region. I used antibiotic ointment and a gauze pad, it seems to be draining a little. I am wondering if I should go to the doctor to have them stitch it or will it heal by itself? There doesn't seem to be any bleeding but I am worried about it closing up.
