About a year ago I noticed that I had a red bump on my buttocks. It didn't itch but it was kind of sore but not so much that I could sit down. I thought it might have been a zit so I popped it and clear liquid came out. A few weeks later another bump appeared in another location and I repeated the same thing. After that I just stopped popping them because I knew it wasn't a good idea. For awhile, the bumps would reappear and then seemingly heal itself and I notice they leave a bluish mark that fadded to a redish mark. This spread over both my buttocks and now are starting to appear on my side and one even on my leg. (Note that the bumps never appear in a place more than once.) Sometimes they make the area around the bump itch a little but not usually, mostly they are just sore and very red. I also haven't noticed and white or black head on the bumps, they're all just a bright red.
I had gotten herpes simplex in my eye years before and I had wondered maybe if somehow it had gotten on my buttocks but when I saw a doctor about it and she said from what I told her that it wasn't herpes because they didn't come in clusters but the bumps sound like they're herpes. At first she told me to use phisoderm (a medical soap for acne and breakouts) but so far I haven't noticed it helping much. I'm going to go back again and I'm trying to find a dermatologist but I was wondering if someone might give me a clue as to what the heck these things are.
I have a lot of skin problems and I've ruled out zits, acne, ingrown hairs, and probably herpes.
Classic case of Ingrown hair.
I go to the gym 6 days a week...RIGHT after the gym i HAVE to shower or i will get these bumps. They are EXTREMELY annoying and if you pop them, you get a badass scar...
Showering twice a day helps, as well as using Cetaphil on the buttox and the crotch.
this is gonna sound wierd, but it works. I read where Elizabeth Hurley rubbed her but w/ sandpaper after every shower, to prevent zits. Well, I do it before every shower, and guess what...it works! Dont do it too hard, though
