What causes itchy pus filled bumps from tail bone to top?

default
Posted on Thu, 5 May 2016
Question: I get small, itchy blister-like bumps anywhere from the tip of my tail bone to the top. They're not painful, & appear to be filled with a water-like substance only. They're so itchy, that I scratch until the skin breaks, & usually they dry up quickly after, & go away. The lower ones are hard to get rid of, I'm assuming because they can't dry out..
A few years ago they'd appear every few months or so, but lately I'm in a constant state of having them.. As soon as some go away, I get new ones.
It's uncomfortable, embarrassing when I want to be intimate with my husband, & over all just making me feel disgusted with myself. Please help, I'm at my wits end.

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am Dr.Kakkar (Dermatologist). I have read your question and I understand your concern about this itchy condition.

You seem to have some eczematous condition of the affected area. Eczemetous conditions are usually self perpetuating with itching and scratching making them stay and even worsen. I would request you kindly upload a few clear images so that I am able to confirm the possibility and suggest you the most appropriate solution. You may upload Images either at "Reports Section" Or you may mail me at YYYY@YYYY with the subject line of this mail as Attention: Dr.Kakkar.
