Thanks for your query.You are getting bumps on buttock repeatedly which subsides after taking antibiotics.Mostly it is a sebaceous cyst containing a sebaceous material inside.You have to excise the cyst with sac so that it will not recur again Your Dr has advised you the same treatment.Please go ahead and get it removed.
