Very hard, non-puss filled, itchy red bumps on butt crack. Rashes comes and goes. How can I overcome this issue?

I have very hard, non-puss filled, itchy red bumps on the area around my butt crack. It started with one and I thought it was a mosquito bite. It faded and then several more appeared. There has been no open sores, I am in a healthy monogamous relationship. (17 years) I have tried some over the counter stuff but nothing seems to alleviate the issue. The rash comes and goes every several days. There seems to always be a hard knot somewhere on my inner buttcheeck. (Never in the exact same place.) So this issue flares up for a day or so then fades. Every time it re-appears it seems to be a little more intense. Any help would be great as I don t have the money to go to the doctor.

Dermatologist 's  Response
Probably the case appears to me as "erythema nodosum"
it is a hypersensitivity response of the body to some abnormal antigen. you must undergo few investigations to find out the cause for the hypersensitivity. this may include few blood investigations and some others and you must visit a dermatologist at the earliest.
3. take some antiinflammatory medicine to relieve the pain and acute inflammation.

Hi welcome toHCMForum. According to your description the problem could be UTRICARIA.
It is an allergic reaction to some thing. it may be food clothes cosmetics or some thing else. to
find out to which substance you are allergic you will be a better judge. Make a list of things you
come in contact with and you drink and eat. When you get the itching find the things you have
come across previous to that. I advise you to consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment.
Besides i advise you some diet recomendations as avoid things you come in contact wi th
and food you have taken before getting the itching. And also avoid taking brinjal and sea food.
Wishing for a quick recovery, and thanks for calling.
