I once had a surprise outbreak and an impending date. I used a face mask on the areas and the spots reduced to barely visible.
There is no cure. I have struggled with this problem for many many years. I am really frustrated. Many times, my zits are cystic. They not only feel painful, and take forever to go away, but they leave a bumpy redish scar.
I have had cortisone shots on my cystic pimples and they work but I get so many cystic pimples that I can't make an appointment for shots every time I get them.
They're not zits dumb ass.
may I respectfully suggest that you see a good dermatologist? Sounds like you've wrongly suffered.
I suffered terribly with acne in my teens and early 20s...sounds like you need some proper antibiotics. Retin-A was a wonder drug for me, but that's not indicated for the butt. Cleocin-T (RX only) is a good topical medication for serious acne, but I never used it -- friends did, though.
To everyone reading this thread, there's nothing unusual about pimples on the butt and they're a fact of life like sneezing, burping and farting.
Please keep your butts as clean and dry as possible, apply a good powder after bathing/showering only after your skin is dry, and wear clean, well-fitting underwear of a "breathable" fabric such as soft cotton.
Anything that irritates your butt and/or makes it sweat will promote butt acne.
That sounds horrible.
Quit using steroids.
Sitting too long also a cause. The hair follicle gets clogged with oil.
I've never had zits/pimples anywhere else on my body except my face. I don't break out anymore, but as a teen it was rampant. I would've gladly traded places with someone who got them on their ass 'cause at least you can cover it up. Your face is there for the world to see, and I did not want people staring at me.
Try sitting on your face R8.
One thing you should never do if you have a pimpled ass us never shave it
alpha hydroxy acid
They're ingrown hairs, silly.
"One thing you should never do if you have a pimpled ass us never shave it"
If you are prone to pimples the advice is never shave anywhere (if it is even remotely possible - which it usually isn't)
Ew. Just. Ew
I had one zit that wouldnt go away. HPV
Nothing grosses me out more than a partner with a serious case of pizza butt.
Never on my bum, ALWAYS a problem on my back
OP, you have just won $1,000 for correctly guessing the name of Taylor Swift's new ode to Harry Styles.
Washes containing pyrithone zinc tend to work well on non-facial acne. You might want to give it a try.
If it is not HPV, it is possibly a result of wearing tight underwear or jeans and shaving. The resulting zits could be shaving irritation or the result of dirt getting under the skin. And also, make sure you wear clean underwear (don't wear pants w/o underwear, either) and make sure you wash and dry your behind in the show/bath if you are prone to this problem.
When I sat at a desk all day I used to get these. Finally got some Oxy pads and started swiping my cheeks with them 2x/day and they cleared up within a week.
Apply a little tea tree oil twice daily, sing a cotton swab. They'll dry up pretty quickly.
"Then I Knew" Part II:
"When you asked me to pop the zits on your ass, then I knew."
Why doesn my hole look like cauliflower?
Use an antibacterial soap coupled with a facial scrub intended for acne. They will disappear.
I just popped a big one. Puss oozed out and it stunk.
garlic. will stinky body or puss-y ass?
Op, it's caused by sweating... make sure you dry your butt really well after showering, and wear only 100% cotton underpants. Also, try a body powder on your cheeks.
Ewwwww. That's why I only date men over 30.
This is caused by inaccurate prelubing.
Just take a few minutes to do it properly. They'll still be waiting for you wherever you find them.
What about this cluster of cauliflower around my hole?
Mine came from the mix of sitting on my ass for long periods of times, sweating, and cheap underwear fabric.
I gotta freeze these zits off the entrance to my love canal.
You had your venereal warts removed, R24.
You didn't get your venereal warts removed, R32.
I had them.
They freaked me out
Then I got Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash.
They went away along with any stray pimple on the bod
Clear skin now!
This is simply not talked about in polite society.
I use ointments but can't remember what they are. I think they work but can't see my ass sometimes
Use a tweezer!
It's highly satisfying.
Oh, it might leave a scar.
