When people think of acne, they usually think of the face.
But acne can show up anywhere!
In fact, Allure reports it can be particularly embarrassing to have acne on one's derriere. But breakouts on the butt aren't actually acne. It's usually a bacterial or fungal infection.
It's most often due to inflammation around hair follicles known as folliculitis, or an irritation secondary to chronic rubbing. It can come with wearing tight-fitting clothes or even waxing.
These bumps usually appear as small, shallow lumps, which tend to be itchy or painful.
There are two ways to treat it. If it's a bacterial infection, wash with a benzoyl peroxide acne cleanser.
If that doesn't work, it may be a fungal infection.
Apply dandruff shampoo as a liquid cleanser to the affected area, sit while you sing the alphabet, and then rinse off.
