i know it's repulsive: really bad butt acne

42 posts in this topic

I have no idea what to do about this horrible acne on my butt. I rarely ever get pimples anywhere else. My face is clear except for like a small zit or two every week, but I get these disgusting, huge zits downstairs. I have about eight of them right now, and my face is perfectly clear. I have good hygiene and use clean and clear deep action cream, which seems to work for the rare facial break-outs. Can anybody help me out? What could possibly be wrong with me? It really hurts to sit down...

red cystic acne? is it all in one concentrated spot for the most part? I don't think it's acne, sounds more like a fungus or something

Sound like folliculitis to me. Folliculitis is an infection of the hair follicles-looks like acne, feels like acne, etc. Are you using a loofah or scubby cloth of some kind? Those are notorious for causing this kind of infection (a BF of mine got it in his pubic region that way). If it's folliculitis, the doc will prescibe short-course antibiotics, probably Keflex, and it'll clear up in no time. If it's fungus it'll clear with Lotramin AF, Monistat-7, any anti-fungal med. You could try that first if you want to rule it out b4 you go the doc. Just get the Lotramin or Monistat (get a generic though, save some dough) and rub it on once in the AM and once in the PM. Wash your hands after so you don't risk spreading it. If you don't see any improvement in 2 days, go to the doc.

Hope this helps,

Ayla

I'm not sure how you could tell unless you go to your doc/derm, but that seems kinda embarrassing

I said that cause I remember reading once here or somewhere of a disease/fungus/something on the chest that is a lot of the times mistaken for acne. it would mostly be on one side, and only a little on the other. I can't remember more than that, and I'm not going to get you worried about something that I have no power to determine/diagnose

I'd imagine if it was fungus/infection it would be easier to get rid of then acne

I don't wear thongs, so that couldn't be it. I've done some research about folliculitis and it seems that that is most probably what I have. I know that the best idea would be to go to the doctor, but that would be EMBARRASSING. Is there any good way I can treat it with non-prescription items?

Face:

-Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Cleanser

-Paula's Choice 2% BHA lotion

-small amount of moisturizer on any dry areas (Cetaphil lotion or Complex 15)

-Elta MD UV Physical SPF 41

Body acne, at night only:

-Aveeno Skin Relief Unscented body wash

-Dan's Acne.org BP gel

-Cetaphil SPF15 Moisturizer (no I don't care about the SPF since it's at night, this is

just the best one I've found), then sleep in a white t-shirt.

-Hair care to prevent body acne - use lightest products possible such as

Free&Clear Shampoo and conditioners with water soluble silicones only, always do first THEN use body wash after to make sure none stays on skin.

Results: Clear skin!!!

Maybe you could try not wearing any underwear at night, to give your skin a breather?

get an ass transplant user posted image im kidding with you. I would recommend you put b.p on the pimples, let them dry n till u see that u have no butt breakin out, go n get a peel or use salicylic acid with a high percentage. That should get rid of the dark spots left by b.p

ROFLMAO

It's anal sex free over here.

I got some lever 2000 soap, and it works pretty well. I would recommend getting some tougher antibiotic stuff besides soap because it's taking forever. Listen to Ayla, not xxGoody317xx.

And yes, I'm sure that I have not been up to anything nasty.

Actually never heard of acne on the butt. I used to get an occasional reddish bump on me butt when i was younger, didnt think it was acne but it went away, it always occured to me that it was a rash but your seems different. You should see a docter.

I had the same problem for about 6 years it would come and go......however one day I was completely out of lotions and powders and the only thing that was on the counter was the foot powder I bought for my sons athletes foot. DESENEX. I "stumbled"....hahaha...upon this cure completely by accident! I have been free of butt acne for about 2 years now. I know it sounds crazy but apply it about 4 times per day to the entire area and avoid bathing...shower only!! It will go away.

I'm now working with Dial antibacterial soap and Walmart's generic povidone-iodine solution. I can't tell for sure whether the products are working or not, which means they're probably not working.

I think I need some heavier stuff, but I really really really really really don't want to see a doctor about this! Plus, the fact that I'd first have to tell my parents makes it even worse (I'm still in high school and don't even have a car).

Has anyone around here actually had the SAME problem and fixed it?

Steve - Sorry, I have no idea where you'd buy that stuff in England. If I were you, I'd just go straight to the doctor. Butt acne is too painful to have to try a myriad of remedies and have none of them work.
