Hello,
Thanks for the query.

You might have developed folliculitis.

It is a bacterial infections.

Butt area has lot of hair,

So ingrown hair can be one of the cause for this.

Treatment is with antibiotics.

Apply a topical antibiotic like mupirocine.

Also take an oral antibiotic.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
