i have sores on each buttock that seem to heal but then come back in the exact same location, become very
pimple like and when icthed to relieve the pressure they bleed a lot. I've tried peroxide,alcohol pads, and avoiding scratching but they keep coming back every 2-3 weeks.

Brief Answer:
As detailed below.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your feedback.
From the history you have provided such lesions can be due to one of the following reasons:
recurrence at the same spots:
Localized dermatitis with fungal infection: These have tendency to recur.
Sort of FDR that is fixed drug reaction: can be due to some medicine in past and instigated over time and again due to similar allergens in the form of something in foods, beverages, local contacts or in atmosphere around.
The Photos help in pin-pointing the cause.
Only an antihistamine and steroid can help in such a case; needs a prescription after careful clinical evaluation.

I hope this answer helps you.
Please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
