It could be any number of things. Any changes in your dogs skin should be looked at by the vet.

Could it be maggots?

This looks like some sort of growth that is on the skin of the dog. This could be dangerous or it could be because of the age of your dog. The only way to find out if this needs to be removed or not is to check with your vet. Once my dog got older she developed a lot of these growths that the vet did remove. He said they were dangerous but it was safer to remove them than to allow them to stay on the dog. I would check with your vet and see what they suggest for you to do.

As a vet. tech for many years, the safest thing to do for any skin abnormalities on your animals, is to see your vet. If deemed questionable, they can do a skin scraping and test the growth. The vet will probably remove this growth anyway, as it is on your dog's butt, which is an area prone to getting scratched up when the dog sits or moves around, and could irritate the growth if left in place. Anyway, the growth should be tested to make sure it isn't cancerous. We all want the best for our animals, and this warrants a trip to the vet just to make sure. Good luck and stay healthy and safe.

This will need to get looked after by a Vet, to be on the safe side as soon as you are able. Your fur baby is family, and like a family member this would be a little alarming to find on your body. There are a few test that they would do to make sure it doesn't go any further, or get worst.

This does not really look like something you should treat without discussing it with your vet. Sometimes, (if you have a regular vet) you can make a phone call and they will let you send in a couple of pictures and they may feel it is not serious enough for a visit and recommend some kind of home treatment. Your vet may also be doing virtual visits (over the phone) for a lot less money than an office visit. This is the type of thing they could treat by seeing the bump from your phone and decide if it needs testing or maybe treat it and see if the condition improves.

There is usually a vet tech at PetSmart stores and they might be able to tell you if you need to see the vet (dogs are allowed in their stores - on a leash).
I'm only saying this if you do something right away.
Since this is on his rump, it could be something that was caused because he did not completely clean himself at one point and either scratched it or rubbed it to make a bump spring up.
Do not take any chances as it could become serious by getting infected.
You can do a little something while you are waiting that might keep it from getting worse.
Add/mix (any amount but more is better) Epsom Salt to hot water - let it cool to the touch and take a clean cloth, wet it in the mix and hold it on the bump for as long as he will let you but keeping it warm as long as possible. This should sooth the itch/soreness until you can talk to a vet.
