What Causes Butt Pimples

Nearly everyone will get pimples on the butt at some point. They can happen at any age and occur equally in all sexes. You may just get a butt pimple here and there. Or you may have rough, red bumps across the entirety of your bum. They may hurt or itch, or you may not feel them at all.

Knowing what may be causing your butt pimples and how to treat them can bring relief. This article will give you some tips.

Blocked Pores

Pimples on the butt can be the result of blocked pores. Yes, your bum has pores too. And they can become clogged—just like pores anywhere else on your body—and cause acne.

People who have acne in other areas often get booty breakouts as well. Acne vulgaris, or what we call common acne, can sometimes pop up on body areas including the chest, shoulders, back, and buttocks. 

For widespread acne, it’s a wise idea to see a dermatologist. Body acne can be difficult to treat and responds best to prescription acne treatments.

Non-Acne Causes

Actually, the vast majority of butt blemishes are not truly acne at all. While we tend to call any collection of red bumps on the skin “acne,” it’s quite likely those spots across your derriere are caused by something different than a clogged pore.

Folliculitis

The most common cause of red, inflamed pimples on your backside is folliculitis. That’s just a fancy way of saying inflamed hair follicle. You have hair follicles over nearly all areas of your skin, including your booty.

When a hair follicle gets irritated, it becomes red and swollen. The bumps can develop a white head and look like acne pimples. These bumps are sometimes painful or itchy, but not always.

Folliculitis can happen just about anywhere on the body. Dermatologists say that it is becoming much more common, probably because of our clothing choices and what’s now in style. The friction caused by tight-fitting clothing can be enough to irritate your hair follicles.

Sweat also irritates hair follicles. Even if you’re not sweating a lot, undergarments made of non-breathable material, like nylon or polyester, can hold moisture against your skin. Again, this can irritate hair follicles.

Folliculitis can also be caused when the hair follicle becomes infected with bacteria, like Staphylococcus aureus or Pseudomonas aeruginosa. A specific type of folliculitis, called hot tub folliculitis, can happen if you spend time in an improperly maintained hot tub or pool.

Keratosis Pilaris

What if, Instead of red, inflamed blemishes, you have fine, rough bumps across your booty? You most likely have keratosis pilaris. You may have had this condition your entire life and never knew those bumps had a name.

Keratosis pilaris is a very common skin condition. It causes small skin-colored or red bumps across the surface of the skin. The bumps may look rather like tiny pimples or goosebumps. You might not really notice them except when you run your hand over them.

These bumps develop when there is a buildup of keratin, a protein that forms a protective layer on the surface of the skin, around the pore opening. For unknown reasons, the keratin can build up and form a hard plug, which creates the bump you see and feel.

Keratosis pilaris commonly develops on the buttocks, backs of the upper arms, and fronts of the thighs. Children often get it on their cheeks (of the face, not the bum).

There’s no specific cause for keratosis pilaris, though it does tend to run in families. It’s often at its worst during childhood and the teen years, and fades over time. Although it’s annoying, the good news is that keratosis pilaris is completely harmless.

Boils (Skin Abscesses)

If you have a very large, painful pimple (or a cluster of large pimples) on your derriere, you may have a boil, also called a skin abscess. Boils can develop when the hair follicle gets infected.  

Staphylococcus bacteria are the most common culprits that cause boils. But other bacteria like Streptococcus or Pseudomonas can also be to blame. Although rare, fungal infections cause boils as well.

Boils start off small, but quickly grow into large blemishes. And boils hurt! They can happen anywhere on the body, but are often on the buttocks.

Treating Butt Pimples

If you have pimples on your behind, don’t worry. You’re not doomed to simply live with them. There are steps you can take to clear up butt acne, no matter the cause.

Benzoyl Peroxide

Even though not all butt pimples are technically acne, you can still treat them with over-the-counter acne treatment products. Benzoyl peroxide body wash or bar soap is the best option. You can get it at any drugstore or big box store over the counter; you won’t need a prescription.

Benzoyl peroxide works best for inflamed bumps like folliculitis. To use it, gently soap up all affected areas every time you shower.

Exfoliating Skin Creams

Keeping hair follicles from becoming blocked will help your skin stay baby-bum-smooth. To do this, regular exfoliation is key. Exfoliating creams help speed up cell turnover while keeping the skin moisturized, and they’re especially helpful for keratosis pilaris.

Look for over-the-counter creams that contain glycolic acid, lactic acid, or salicylic acid. Prescription creams containing tretinoin (a synthetic form of vitamin A) can be used in more severe cases.

Topical or Oral Antibiotics

If you have a severe infection, you may need topical or oral antibiotics. If your blemishes are very red, swollen, and painful—and if home treatments aren’t helping—you may want to visit your physician to find out whether this treatment is right for you.

Lancing and Draining

You can often heal boils with good home treatment. Warm compresses can help them come to a head and drain. This sets them on the way to healing. and helps with pain.

But if your boil isn’t starting to get better after seven days or so, see a doctor. They may lance your boil (making a small incision to drain the infection), or recommend another treatment option. Never try to lance a boil yourself.

Recap

Regardless of what is causing your butt acne, there are treatments available. Though some bumps may require prescription medications or other medical treatment, many can be managed with over-the-counter acne products or exfoliating skin creams. Talk to your doctor about what will work best for you.

Prevention and Management

Everyone gets a breakout on their backsides every now and again. It’s not possible to completely prevent them, but there are some things you can do to minimize butt pimples.

  • Shower after you sweat. Sweat can irritate the hair follicles and make your skin more prone to breakouts. So no hanging out in your yoga pants after workouts.
  • Switch to cotton underwear. Cotton breathes better than synthetic material.
  • Don’t scrub. Scrubbing will irritate already inflamed follicles and make blemishes redder and more obvious. Instead, exfoliate with body washes or creams that contain skin-smoothing ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids.
  • Don’t pop or pick at blemishes. This can make breakouts worse.
  • Stay away from tight-fitting clothes. The friction caused by tight pants can irritate your skin and trigger a breakout on your buns.

Summary

There are multiple reasons why you can develop acne on your bottom, but fortunately butt pimples can be managed. Taking care of your skin, letting it breathe, and keeping your hair follicles clear and clean can make a big difference and help you stay comfortable.

A Word From Verywell

An occasional pimple on your backside isn’t a big deal. Even a bum full of tiny, fine, red bumps isn’t anything to worry about, so long as they aren’t painful, super itchy, or getting worse.

If you have a pimple that gets really big (dime-sized or larger) or one that hurts badly, it’s a good idea to have a physician check it out. The same thing applies if you have many very inflamed pimples across your derriere.

In most cases though, just a few changes to your body care routine will help improve your butt breakouts.

Buttocks Breakouts: How to Get Rid of the Bumps on Your Behind

According to doctors at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, bumps on the buttocks may be due to an allergy caused by the chemical preservative MI (methylisothiazolinone), found in moistened flushable wipes. For some people, these wipes can cause allergic contact dermatitis, according to research published in JAMA Dermatology.

Treatment Options for Getting Rid of ‘Buttne’

Your treatment will depend on whether you have folliculitis, carbuncles, keratosis pilaris, or an allergy.

Here’s what to expect.

Folliculitis treatment Most of the time, folliculitis eruptions go away on their own. If not, a dermatologist can prescribe a combination of products to clear up your skin. “Often, ‘butt acne’ can be treated with a topical antibiotic cream or an antibacterial wash such as one that contains benzoyl peroxide,” says MacKelfresh. Rarely, you might need an oral antibiotic or an antifungal medication.

“Look for cleansers that contain 10 percent benzoyl peroxide, an ingredient that lowers levels of acne-causing bacteria and reduces inflammation,” says Zeichner. “Let the cleanser lather on the skin while you sing the alphabet before rinsing off — this ensures enough contact time for the active ingredient to do its job.”

Carbuncle treatment Because carbuncles go deeper, treatment is more intensive. You may be given an antibiotic (oral or topical) to fight the infection, according to MedlinePlus. Your healthcare provider may also need to lance, or pierce, the boil to drain the accumulated pus in a safe, sterile setting. The area will then be covered with a bandage. Never try to drain a carbuncle yourself at home.

Keratosis pilaris treatment Because the condition is painless, and often considered just a variation of normal skin, according to the Mayo Clinic, it can’t be prevented, though moisturizer may help if you’re dealing with dry patches.

Allergy treatment Hold off on using any moistened wipes for one month. If you only abstain for a week or two, you may not see your skin clear up, say doctors at the Ohio State University.

How to Help Prevent ‘Pimples’ From Popping Up on Your Buttocks

“You can prevent ‘butt acne’ by staying in good health overall,” says MacKelfresh. Try taking these precautions:

  • Wear loose clothing whenever possible. Tight clothing, especially when combined with sweat, can cause skin irritation that leads to folliculitis. Be sure to change your clothes and take a shower after exercise. Also, the Mayo Clinic advises using a fresh towel and washcloth after bathing.
  • Work with your doctor to bring any chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, under control. Chronic health issues can make it harder for your body to fight off infection.
  • If you do get folliculitis, make sure you get it promptly under control to avoid carbuncles and the need for more aggressive treatment.
  • Avoid moistened flushable wipes, especially those made with MI.

Treatment, Causes, Symptoms & Home Remedies

Most people assume that a breakout of pimples on the butt is acne. In fact, butt acne isn’t really acne. Acne is a skin condition involving clogged pores. Pores become clogged when excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria are trapped inside them. Acne most often affects body sites that have a high concentration of oil glands. This includes the face, neck, chest, shoulders, and upper back. The skin of the buttocks does not have a lot of oil glands. So, true acne on butt cheeks is rare.

The pimples that show up on the butt are most likely folliculitis or keratosis pilaris. Keratosis pilaris is a harmless skin condition. It’s the result of a buildup of keratin—a hard skin protein—that blocks the hair follicle (this involves the infundibulum or pore that includes the hair shaft, sweat glands and oil glands). It causes small bumps that can look like acne. Folliculitis is inflammation of the hair follicle, which can also look like acne. The inflammation can be the result of irritation or infection. Contact dermatitis is another possible cause of a butt breakout.

Keratosis pilaris is very common and tends to run in families. Experts don’t really know what causes it. Folliculitis is the result of damage to the hair follicle that then causes irritation or allows germs to infect it. The damage can come from friction on the skin, wearing tight clothing, or shaving. While keratosis pilaris bumps usually don’t hurt or itch, folliculitis can be uncomfortable or painful.

“Butt acne” treatment depends on the underlying cause of the pimples. If it’s keratosis pilaris, you probably have similar bumps on the back of the upper arms or thighs. Moisturizing the skin right after showering can help soften the skin. An exfoliant cream containing lactic acid or similar ingredients can encourage the skin to turnover faster and prevent plugged follicles.

Treatment of folliculitis depends on whether or not it’s infectious. Folliculitis from irritation may improve if you remove the source of irritation, such as shaving or wearing tight clothing. Applying warm compresses and hydrocortisone cream may help soothe the area and reduce inflammation.

Because there can be several causes of so-called butt acne, see a dermatologist if the condition persists or is bothersome.

How to Get Rid of Butt Acne in 2021

Let’s take a poll: Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt a bump on your butt before and chalked it up to butt acne. Great, so that makes all of us! Not only is “butt acne” super common—no reason to be embarrassed about it, k?—but it’s also commonly confused other super-common skin conditions (lookin’ at you, folliculitis), which makes treating it a little more confusing than, say, chest acne, or scalp acne.

Thankfully, butt acne is relatively simple to treat once you actually know what you’re dealing with. So to help break down the facts, we consulted two board-certified dermatologists, Morgan Rabach, MD, and Shereene Idriss, MD, on how to distinguish pimples on your butt from something else, explain a few surprising things that might be causing your acne, and offer all the best treatment advice. Keep reading to get rid of those zits, once and for all.

Are butt pimples normal?

Dr. Rabach says “butt acne” is super common (and, yes, normal!), but—surprise, surprise—butt acne is rarely “real” acne. If you want to get technical, and we do, what you’re probably experiencing is something called folliculitis, which is “an inflammation of the hair follicles that leads to a pimple-like bump,” says Dr. Idriss. So even though butt pimples which can look like acne, they’re not exactly the same thing, and shouldn’t be treated the same way either.

So how can you tell if what you’re dealing with is folliculitis or acne? Glad you asked:

What does folliculitis look like?

Get access to *all* of Cosmo

Folliculitis and acne are easily confused, because they really do look similar to the untrained eye (ahem, that’s you), but there are a few key differences a dermatologist can easily spot:

  • What acne looks like:
    “Acne is defined by having comedones, which are blackheads and whiteheads,” says Dr. Rabach. Basically, acne looks like…acne. A mix of little whiteheads, maybe some blackheads, maybe a cystic zit, maybe some painful, inflamed bumps.
  • What folliculitis looks like:
    “Folliculitis has a hair in the center of a red bump, and the white material associated with the bump is often dead skin and white blood cells,” says Dr. Rabach. It might look like a small whitehead, but usually it won’t be just a single bump—you’ll likely have a smattering of same-size, whitehead-looking bumps (and no blackheads).

    That said, there are instances where patients do get real zits on their butts, which is why both Dr. Idriss and Dr. Rabach agree that you should see a derm to find out exactly what’s really going on and treat it the right way.

    Should I pop folliculitis bumps?

    You already know the answer to this. That’s a big ol’ no, nope, never. You should never pop, pick, or prod anything yourself, really, and doing any of the above to your butt acne will not only make your breakout worse but also lead to scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation afterward. So, yeah, that’s gonna be a no for me, dog, and it should be a no for you, too.

    What causes acne on butt?

    In short, anything that causes friction can cause these butt bumps. And if you feel like your butt acne is more prevalent in the summer—exactly when you might be choosing to show off your butt—you’re right. Wet clothes, like a bathing suit or sweaty workout leggings, are two main offenders that lead to folliculitis. But don’t stress! You don’t have to swear off swimming and yoga forever. You just gotta know the right ways to go about your everyday life.

    How do I permanently get rid of butt acne?

    The first step in clearing up your butt acne for good is with a proper diagnosis from a derm, because only once you know the exact cause can you properly treat it. That said, small changes to your regular routine might work wonders for improving your breakouts, whether they actually are butt acne or folliculitis. So once you’ve made that appointment to see your derm, get started on the below.

    1. Use a benzoyl peroxide wash

    Dr. Idriss recommends cleansing with an acne wash that contains a high percentage of benzoyl peroxide, like PanOxyl, which kills the bacteria on the skin that could lead to bacterial folliculitis, while also unclogging pores, and reducing inflammation. Massage it along your breakouts, then allow it to sit for a few seconds before washing it off to give the ingredient time to work.

    Heads up: Benzoyl peroxide is equally as known for bleaching fabrics as it is for clearing your skin, so if you don’t want to risk ruining your favorite bath towels, make sure to rinse your skin really well after cleansing.

    2. Exfoliate your skin—but don’t scrub it

    While you may be tempted to exfoliate the hell out of your bumpy butt, leave the grainy physical scrubs alone (and no picking either!). Instead, Dr. Idriss says to apply a gentle chemical exfoliator, which uses ingredients like alpha-hydroxy acids (such as lactic or glycolic acids) or beta-hydroxy acids (salicylic acid) to keep dead skin cells from clogging your pores.

    3. Get a chemical peel

    If you really want to get rid of your butt acne overnight, Dr. Rabach says the best treatments are available at your dermatologist’s office. For the fastest results, she recommends an in-office chemical peel to encourage the shedding of skin. But for a less intense treatment, you can also try an at-home face peel, which relies on the same chemical exfoliants mentioned above to do the trick.

    4. See your dermatologist for a topical antibiotic

    Dr. Rabach also recommends asking your doctor about clindamycin lotion, which is a super-light topical medication that’s non-greasy and won’t stain your clothes. This antibiotic can be used to calm inflammation and kill bacteria that can lead to acne, or in this case, butt acne.

    5. Choose breathable fabrics

    The lighter, looser, and more breathable the fabric of your clothing is, the less likely you are to cause a folliculitis flare-up, which is why Dr. Rabach recommends cotton underwear over, say, nylon. Trapped sweat and friction are not only the two main culprits of chafed skin, but also a big cause of inflammation in the hair follicle.

    6. Wear moisture-wicking fabrics when working out

    Dr. Rabach has noticed way more patients with folliculitis lately, and all that work-from-home athleisure may be to blame. If a pair of tight pants rubs you the wrong way, maybe chill on wearing them for a bit until you get everything under control. When you absolutely have to wear tight-fitting gym clothes to work out, opt for moisture-wicking fabrics to prevent the sweat from getting trapped against your skin. Because sweat creates the perfect environment for bacteria, which could lead to a breakout. And speaking of sweat…

    7. Change out of sweaty clothes

    Say it with me: Activewear is not loungewear. Take off your sweaty workout clothes as soon as you get home (or even sooner if you can). Oh, and Dr. Rabach says the same goes for your wet swimsuits or any other damp clothing. Who likes sitting in swampy, wet clothes anyway?!

    8. Shower after sweating

    Listen, I know you’re tired after working out, and we’re already asking a lot of you to peel off your sticky bike shorts when your arms are still burning, but once you’ve made it that far, you might as well step in the shower and wash away all that sweat and bacteria. According to Dr. Rabach, a quick rinse or a cleanse with body wash is key for treating and preventing butt acne, and it also works like a charm for acne all over your body, like the acne on your back.

    9. Use salicylic acid to get rid of acne scars on your butt

    We touched on salicylic acid as a spot treatment for smoothing out the bumps of butt acne (thanks to its ability to dissolve dead skin and unclog pores), but Dr. Rabach also loves the ingredient for reducing the dark spots or acne scars left behind on your thighs or butt by the old active lesions and recommends an over-the-counter salicylic acid face wash. This will not only help to lighten the spots by encouraging new skin cells but also prevent them from popping up, so it’s a good ingredient to keep on hand (err—butt? Idk).

    The takeaway:

    Get your butt to the derm. A board-certified dermatologist is much better at distinguishing an acne breakout from folliculitis than you are (and that’s not a knock against you—these people are doctors who studied this very thing). Dr. Rabach says dermatologists see this all the time, so butt acne is nothing to be embarrassed about and no reason to put it off. Just whatever you do, stop sitting in sweaty yoga pants, got it?

    7 Butt Acne Treatment Tips

    Marko_MarcelloGetty Images

    Talk about a (literal) pain in the you-know-what—butt acne is anything but cute and can seriously get in the way of your summertime activities.

    Even more annoying: “Buttne” isn’t the same as the pimples that pop up on your face, making this type of acne tough to treat, even if you’ve figured out how to deal with your normal breakouts.

    This content is imported from {embed-name}. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

    “Butt acne is usually not true acne, but rather folliculitis, which is a mild infection of the hair follicle that leads to red bumps and pus pimples,” explains Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai in New York City.

    But if it’s not a regular pimple, what causes butt acne?

    Buttne is usually caused by a combination of your hair follicles getting blocked and a bacterial infection. But most of the time, you can blame your booty bumps on blocked hair follicles, says Gary Goldenberg, MD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital. Here are a few reasons you might end up with clogged hair follicles—and they can range from the gross to the “wait, seriously?”

    1. Keeping your wet, sweaty clothes on after you’ve hit the gym: Your sweat can dry over your pores and leave bumps in their wake. Change your clothes (and your underwear) and hop in the shower ASAP after you work out. If you don’t have time for a full shower, do a quick cleanse with a wipe, like Degree Deodorant Wipes.

    2. Sitting too much: Those inflamed hair follicles, a.k.a. folliculitis, are caused by friction or irritation. So too much booty-to-chair time can make things worse. “If your job requires a lot of sitting, make an effort to stand up more frequently,” says Mona Gohara, MD, dermatologist and a member of the Women’s Health advisory board.

    3. Wearing undies past their prime: Changing your underwear regularly is crucial, since old underwear puts acne-promoting dirt, sweat, and oil up close and personal with your skin. Make sure to put on a fresh pair every day.

    4. Wearing tight-fitting clothes: Yup, your go-to skinny jeans and leggings can actually influence whether you get butt acne. Tight-fitting clothes not only causes friction against your skin, but it also traps sweat and oil against your backside and makes it more likely to block those hair follicles, leading to bumps on your butt.

    So you’ve got buttne—no biggie! Here are 7 ways to deal.

    1. Hop in the shower right after exercising.

    “Showering immediately after a workout can help remove sweat, oil, and dirt that accumulate on the surface of the skin,” says Dr. Zeichner.

    2. Suds up with benzoyl peroxide.

    Try targeting your booty with a benzoyl peroxide body wash or cleanser. The ingredient is effective in treating both acne and folliculitis because of its antimicrobial (a.k.a. bacteria-fighting) properties. “Sing the full alphabet once you’ve applied the product so it can sit on the skin long enough to do its job, then rinse it off,” advises Dr. Zeichner. (FYI: BP can bleach colored fabrics, so be sure to rinse thoroughly and use white towels!)

    3. Unclog pores with salicylic acid.

    You can also combat your butt breakouts with a salicylic acid acne treatment. This form of beta hydroxy acid (BHA) can help remove excess oils and exfoliate dead skin cells so they don’t get trapped in your pores and follicles (which is how buttne starts).

    4. Brighten dark marks with glycolic acid.

    This is another buttne-fighting ingredient. “It has the benefit of brightening dark spots, which may develop after pimples or folliculitis go away,” says Dr. Zeichner.

    Skinfix Resurface+ Glycolic Renewing Scrub

    5. Moisturize that peach.

    You might assume using body lotion will clog your pores, but that’s not the case if you use a lactic-acid option. “Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that helps hydrate the skin and exfoliate dead cells,” Dr. Zeichner says. And when you get rid of dry skin cells, that helps prevent those bumps. (That’s why it also works for preventing keratosis pilaris, a.k.a. chicken skin.)

    6. Shave the right way.

    Yes, some people shave their butt. “If you shave, use at least a one- to two-blade razor and go with the grain of the hair instead of against it,” says Dr. Gohara. “And use ample shaving cream as well as a lubricant.”

    7. Check in with a dermatologist.

    If at-home solutions aren’t doing the trick, it might be time to make an appointment with a professional. “Your derm may suggest a topical or oral antibiotic,” says Dr. Gohara. “These can help decrease your skin’s inflammation and clear the folliculitis up.”

    90,000 Without a second thought: how to remove acne on the buttocks

    Dermatologists note: acne usually appears on the fifth point due to sweat. The most unpleasant thing about acne on the buttocks is that if you do not control the situation in time, then purulent acne will appear, which over time can merge into a large boil.

    This can happen after you have not taken off your uniform in time after playing sports or constantly wear synthetic and tight clothing. A low level of physical activity, by the way, can also lead to unpleasant results: blood circulation in the pelvic area becomes difficult, the skin sweats more.Bedding and underwear made of synthetic fabrics, which retain moisture and prevent the skin from breathing, are also not recommended. And by the way, changing the bed is worth every 3-4 days, especially with purulent eruptions.

    Nutrition (and this also applies to other parts of the body) also affects the condition of the skin. Smoked, salted, fried, pickled, white bread and sugar are blacklisted. Other factors are more serious (and more difficult to correct) – for example, the body has a reduced function of keratinization (self-cleaning), there are problems with the thyroid gland and intestines, there was a hormonal disruption.

    There are two more reasons. The first is hypertrichosis, that is, increased hair growth on the buttocks. With epilation, there is a risk of ingrown hair and the appearance of purulent inflammation. In this case, it is better to do photo or laser hair removal. The second is molluscum contagiosum. This disease is sexually transmitted and treated with liquid nitrogen.

    Most likely – wash with gels with benzoyl peroxide. And after a shower, wipe the skin with salicylic acid lotion or tonic with sage or chamomile, and local inflammations with iodine, zinc or sulfuric ointment.

    Bath and sauna for purulent eruptions are prohibited. In no case should you squeeze them out, so you will only spread the infection. Avoid tight and squeezing clothing – air circulation around the buttocks is very important. And try to include in the diet more greens, seasonal vegetables and fruits and 1.5-2 liters of clean water per day.

    If the inflammation has become catastrophic, then, naturally, it is better not to self-medicate, but to see a doctor.The reasons for the appearance of redness on the buttocks can be, as we found out, quite serious.

    90,000 Acne on the buttocks in men: causes and treatment

    Acne and other skin rashes are not only an unpleasant phenomenon, but also a sign that a malfunction has occurred in the work of the human body. After all, since ancient times, the state of health has been judged by the skin.

    The appearance of acne on the face worries all people, regardless of gender and age. Since it is simply impossible to ignore them. But not everyone pays attention to a rash on the pope, and even more so they do not look for a way to get rid of it. Most often, acne appears on the buttocks in men. The reasons for their rash can be very different. They not only spoil the aesthetic appearance, but also create uncomfortable and sometimes even painful sensations.

    Regardless of why acne appears on the buttocks in men, first of all you need to remember that they do not appear and do not disappear by themselves.Let’s look at the causes of this problem

    Acne on the buttocks in men: causes

    Photo of rashes on the male body does not cause positive emotions for either boys or girls. Therefore, it is worthwhile to figure out what provokes the appearance of a rash.

    As strange as it may sound, one of the main reasons is unhealthy diet. Systematic consumption of fast food, fatty and spicy foods, snacks on the go – all this contributes to the appearance of acne on the thighs and buttocks in men.

    The next reason is the peculiarity of the skin of the stronger sex. The fact is that there are practically no sebaceous glands on the male buttocks. In this regard, the amount of subcutaneous fat produced is so small that the skin on this part of the body becomes vulnerable.

    Such a physiological feature of the male body, in the form of a lack of moisture, leads to the appearance of acne on the pope.

    Other causes

    In addition to the main reasons, there are other, no less common:

    • skin irritation.This happens under the influence of external factors, as well as due to a lack of moisture in this area of ​​the body;
    • lack of oxygen. The thighs and buttocks are almost always covered with at least one layer of tissue, which makes it difficult for oxygen to reach the skin. The constant friction against the couch, chairs, and car seats only makes the situation worse. This reason is most common among drivers and taxi drivers;
    • non-compliance with hygiene. Ignoring the rules of hygiene leads to clogged pores and acne;
    • allergy. The intolerance of a particular person to any products and medicines contributes to the manifestation of an allergic reaction. It can appear on different parts of the body, including the priest;
    • prickly heat. Acne on the buttocks in men, photos of which will not cause positive emotions in anyone, may turn out to be nothing more than prickly heat. It arises as a result of frequent and sharp temperature changes. For example, a man first sweats a lot, and then, to cool down, opens windows and doors. Due to the draft, his body gets severe hypothermia.
    • sexually transmitted diseases. Sexually transmitted diseases are thus extremely rare. But nevertheless, in medical practice, these cases have occurred.

    Depending on the cause of acne on the bottom of a man, it may be accompanied by various symptoms:

    • itching;
    • burning;
    • discomfort, and in some cases even pain.

    How to treat acne

    Many people are especially not worried about the cause of acne on the buttocks in men.Someone prefers to treat them on their own, while others do not take any measures at all, thinking that they will pass by themselves.

    By cauterizing acne with alcohol and other drying agents, men only make it worse. They dry out the already dehydrated skin of the buttocks. In order to get rid of them, you should immediately contact a dermatologist. He will tell you a proven remedy for inflammation.

    How to remove acne on the buttocks in men? Treatment should be carried out according to a well-thought-out system.

    Salicylic ointment is suitable – this is a remedy that has been tested by many. In order not to dry the skin, it should be applied directly to the problem areas themselves no more than twice a day. If desired, the ointment for acne on the buttocks in men can be replaced with lotion. But you also need to wipe only the areas of inflammation.

    When the first symptoms of acne appear, iodine may help. It should be applied with a cotton swab to the acne once a day. But if acne has been bothering a man for a long time, then iodine will definitely not help him.

    You can also use a pharmacy tool and buy Baziron gel. Despite the fact that it does not dry out the skin, it must be applied locally. “Baziron” not only gets rid of acne in a short time, but also prevents their appearance in the future.

    Masks, baths and compresses

    Herbal baths will help get rid of acne. Most often, a series, celandine and chamomile are used for this. A glass of herbal infusion is diluted with warm water and the buttocks are immersed in it. The procedure takes 15 minutes.

    Compresses can be an alternative option for baths. In a warm herbal solution, moisten the gauze and cover the buttocks with it for 20 minutes.

    Tea tree essential oil is also a very good remedy. After a couple of days of its application, the result will be noticeable. There will be no trace of inflammation and rash.

    Masks made of white, blue and green clay are also good, but very inconvenient to apply, as the surface of the buttocks must be completely covered.

    Now it is clear how you can remove acne on the buttocks in men, the reasons for the appearance of which we have considered.If after a two-week course of treatment (described above) there is no result, then a second consultation with a dermatologist and, possibly, a more in-depth examination is necessary.

    We apply the products correctly

    An important point in order for the treatment to be effective is the correct treatment of acne and the application of medicines.

    This should be done as follows:

    1. Before burning pimples, the skin on the buttocks and thighs must be disinfected and wiped with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide.Only after that, with the help of a cotton swab, the drug should be applied to the inflamed area, while healthy skin should not be touched.
    2. Each man can carry out such a procedure independently, standing in front of a mirror. This should be done in the morning and in the evening, otherwise the results of the treatment will be invisible.

    In addition, the problem area can be treated with a body scrub. But on condition that the acne is small and barely noticeable. After all, this remedy irritates the surface of the skin, and with severe inflammation it can cause purulent inflammation.

    Choose the right underwear

    In order not to pour out pimples on the buttocks of men, the causes of their appearance must be eliminated, for this it is necessary to carry out prevention.

    First of all, you need to take a more responsible approach to the selection of underwear. It should not be too tight and cut into the skin. It is best if it is made of cotton or bamboo. After all, then the skin will breathe, and there will be no irritation.

    Balanced nutrition

    The second important aspect is the daily diet.The advantage in food should be given to cereals, fruits and vegetables, as well as lean meats and fish. Rebuilding your diet completely is difficult at first. Therefore, you should gradually exclude fried and fatty foods, as well as flour and spicy foods, or reduce their use to a minimum.

    The appearance of acne on the bottom can be caused by wearing tight and tight clothing during the hot season. Clothes of this type do not allow air to pass through, which contributes to the appearance of prickly heat. Hot weather, in general, contributes to the active appearance of acne on the buttocks and thighs.And in order to avoid this, you can treat these areas of the body with baby powder.

    Prevention of acne

    To remove the remnants of dead skin when washing, you must use a hard washcloth, and then treat intimate places and the area of ​​the legs near them with baby or moisturizing body cream.

    In order to prevent pimples on the buttocks, the reasons for the appearance of which are the clogging of the pores with the remnants of old skin, do not reappear, in addition to a rough washcloth, you can use body belongings.Many men treat this method of prevention with undisguised irony. But give it credit, this method works flawlessly. But the true representatives of the stronger sex prefer to give the skin the opportunity to cleanse itself and go to the sauna once a month. In general, people who suffer from frequent rashes on the pope are advised to visit the bathhouse at least once a week.

    Direct sunlight also serves as a preventive measure against acne on the butt. But in this case, the main thing is to find a place for this lesson and know when to stop.

    For men who lead a sedentary lifestyle (eg drivers), it is necessary to take time every hour to get up and stand. Five minutes should be enough. Also, put a pillow or cotton cloth on the seat, folded several times. This will allow the skin to breathe during the ride.

    Conclusion

    In modern times, such a problem as acne on the buttocks in men is very relevant. We have considered the reasons for their appearance and we hope that you will not ignore such rashes.Treatment should be carried out immediately. You should also always be in harmony with your body, and all irritating factors must be excluded from your life.

    Possible causes, treatment options, drug review, advice from dermatologists

    The soft tissues of the posterior and latent pelvic region are denser than the skin of other parts of the body. They have much fewer sebaceous glands, so some people find that the skin of the buttocks begins to flake off. In addition, a very common situation is when a large pimple popped up on the butt.In this case, the etiology of such acne is different than, for example, acne that appears on the face.

    People sit on the fifth point, so the skin is adapted to withstand heavy loads. Under it is not only muscle tissue, but also a thick layer of adipose tissue. However, various problems also happen to her. Most often this is due to the fact that the buttocks are deficient in oxygen, since people walk in clothes all day. However, there are many other reasons why rashes appear.Let’s take a closer look at why a large pimple appears on the pope and what to do in this case.

    Characteristics of acne

    Let’s dwell on this in more detail. Absolutely all people, regardless of age and gender, have small pimples on their buttocks. They can be flesh-colored and sometimes red or even blue in color. However, there are times that subcutaneous formations appear, which, when pressed, hurt a lot. In this case, swelling and hyperthermia can be observed.In some cases, acne is accompanied by a purulent discharge that infects the surrounding epidermis.

    According to doctors, with complaints that a large pimple has jumped on the priest, patients rarely go to the hospital. This is due to the structural features of the epidermis of the buttocks. In this area of ​​the human body, there are very small pores that almost never get dirty. If this happens, then a closed comedone is formed.

    Then everything happens according to the following scheme:

    • if not only dirt, but also an infection gets in the time, then a purulent process begins;
    • if the infection has not occurred and the person’s immune system is working well, then a node is formed;
    • If the inflammation has not gone, then the person lives with comedones without any inconvenience.

    If a large pimple appears on the pope and it hurts, then this indicates an infectious infection. As a result, a rash forms on the buttocks, which can occupy an impressive area of ​​the skin. As a rule, acne is watery and burst when pressed. Dermatologists recommend not to self-medicate, but to immediately seek help from the hospital, since the infection can lead to very serious consequences.

    Why does acne appear on the buttocks?

    This issue needs to be emphasized.If a woman has large pimples on her butt, the cause can be caused by many factors. As a rule, there are no serious deviations or disturbances in the functioning of the body, and rashes appear for ordinary everyday motives.

    The most common among them are the following:

    • Pore contamination. Each girl monitors the condition of the skin of the face, hands and some other parts of the body, however, not everyone’s hands reach the fifth point. Due to the constant pressure on the buttocks, keratinous particles are rapidly formed, which must be removed in time.If this is not done, then large pimples appear on the pope, itch and hurt a lot.
    • Non-observance of personal hygiene rules. If a person rarely bathes, then favorable conditions are created for the spread of harmful microorganisms. The most problematic is the anal area. To avoid any health problems, it is recommended to wash with warm water and soap every day.
    • Increased sweating. If a large pimple appears on the pope, then the reason may be a violation of the secretion of liquid secretion.As mentioned earlier, there are very few sweat glands on the buttocks, however, they can work intensively if a person wears synthetic underwear or spends most of the time in a sitting position. Most often, people suffering from hyperhidrosis encounter rashes on the pope.
    • Dirty laundry. Blackheads can develop from rarely changing sheets or clothes. With frequent contact of the epidermis with dirty surfaces, clogging of the pores occurs, as a result of which irritation begins and allergies may develop.

    Thus, by regularly changing underwear and observing basic hygiene rules, you can practically reduce the likelihood of acne on the buttocks to zero.

    Acne and possible pathologies

    What should you pay attention to first of all? In addition to everyday factors, a large red pimple on the butt can appear due to any health problems.

    According to dermatologists, the most common among them are the following:

    • Microcirculation disorder.In people who lead a sedentary lifestyle, there are disruptions in the transport of fluids in soft tissues, which in turn impedes normal blood circulation in muscles and adipose tissue. As a result, the epidermis lacks oxygen and nutrients, and gradually begins to dry out. At the same time, its protective functions are reduced, and it reacts more strongly to various stimuli.
    • Hypothermia. Acne on the buttocks can be caused by the common cold after being exposed to cold for a long time.You can sit on a concrete surface for just a few minutes and this will be enough for the disease.
    • Various infections. If a large pimple on the pope hurts, and when pressed, pus is released from it, then this may be due to the penetration of any pathogenic microorganisms into the body, namely into the pores. They very often live in public baths and saunas, swimming pools, beaches and other places with a large crowd of people.
    • Allergic reaction. Our body can react in completely different ways to antigens.As for rashes on the buttocks, they can be caused by wearing synthetic underwear, certain foods, medications and poor-quality cosmetics. In some cases, the allergic reaction is associated with parasites in the intestines.
    • Hormonal failure. It can lead not only to acne, but also to the development of many diseases. As a rule, pregnant women face various problems, as their bodies undergo massive changes.In addition, a large pimple can appear on the pope after prolonged use of hormonal drugs.

    According to profiled experts, acne on the fifth point of the beautiful half of humanity is rarely caused by any serious health problems. In most cases, it is caused by the abuse of junk food, especially fast food, as well as too salty food, sweets and smoked meats.

    Ways to forget about the problem

    If a big pimple appears on the pope, then you should not immediately panic and run to the hospital, since this may be due to the body’s response to various products or synthetic underwear.At the same time, it is forbidden to squeeze out acne, since this creates a great threat of infection in the body. The alarm should be beaten in case of a rash on a large area of ​​the skin. In this case, professional medical care is indispensable, since in order to choose the most suitable therapy program, it is necessary, first of all, to establish the exact cause of the problem.

    A dermatologist is involved in the treatment of any skin diseases, therefore, in case of acne, contact him.The doctor will conduct an examination, prescribe all the necessary tests and, based on the patient’s clinical picture, select the most effective drugs.

    General rules for treatment

    So, you have noticed big pimples on your butt, what should you do? If you know the reason for their appearance, then you can try to cope with them yourself. However, if there is no information about the problem, then in this case, you should contact a specialized specialist. At the same time, you should understand that taking medication alone will not be enough.You will have to completely reconsider your usual lifestyle and get rid of any bad habits. Much attention should be paid to personal hygiene and gastronomic preferences.

    Every woman wants to always look beautiful, so she wears cosmetics. Often, due to the use of cheap and low-quality products, allergies can develop, which manifests itself with acne not only on the face, but also on the buttocks. Therefore, you need to completely revise the cosmetic bag and put it in order.Alternatively, you can completely switch to the products of another brand.

    If you do not bathe every day, it also causes skin rashes. Experts recommend carrying out hygiene procedures every day, since the human body sweats a lot and it is necessary to wash off the dirt from it. If this is not done, then the pores begin to clog and boils may form. If acne has already appeared, and the epidermis has begun to peel off, then baby creams are used to moisturize it.

    Dispose of synthetic clothing as artificial materials can cause skin irritation and allergies. This is especially true of linen, which must be sewn exclusively from natural fabrics. Cotton is considered the best because it is breathable, so your skin can breathe freely, and it is also excellent at absorbing sweat. This will significantly reduce the likelihood that a large, sore pimple on the butt will pop up.

    And the last thing to do with acne on the buttocks is to review your diet.All harmful products should be excluded from the menu, focusing on fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, kefir and cereals. Such food will not only be safe, but also very useful. You should also refuse or at least minimize the use of alcoholic beverages and tobacco products.

    What medications can be used

    If a large pimple on the butt hurts and itches, then qualified dermatologists most often recommend treating it with various ointments and creams.It is strictly forbidden to take any pills without first consulting a doctor, as this can further aggravate the situation.

    As for gels, the following are considered the best:

    1. Vishnevsky ointment. Perfectly helps with purulent boils. It is applied to acne before going to bed, and a patch is glued on top so that it is not rubbed off by clothes.
    2. Zinc paste. It has a detrimental effect on pathogenic microorganisms, and also helps to dry acne.When applying, you should be very careful not to get the product on healthy skin areas.
    3. Iodine. Used to cauterize purulent boils and disinfect the epidermis.
    4. Fukortsin. It has a good antibacterial effect, therefore it is widely used in dermatology to fight various diseases.
    5. Triderm. If there is a large pimple on the butt under the skin, then this ointment will help to quickly deal with it.

In traditional medicine, there are a huge number of effective methods to combat acne and purulent boils.
