Itchy butt crack

Hi there. I think I may have a pilonidal cyst on my butt crack. Its been there foe about 4 weeks or less now. When I try to scratch it it becomes inflamed but moist at the same time, leaving me with little relief. It has become slighty and more vissibly bigger since I first noticed it. At first I thought that it was a little bit of an itch and that it would soon go away on its own. I am worried now and suspect that its a pilonidal cyst according to the location of the itch, its progression and increased inflamation and noticablity especially when i scratch. Please help. I will go and consult a local GP, but till then please, I am in desperate need of advice.

Unfortunately, there is no over the counter medication that will alleviate or resolve the cyst.
