Red and itchy bumps appeared around buttocks. Hair follicles or STD?

hello, i recently started getting red bumps around the crack of my buttocks . they are fairly itchy and annoying. i am worried about it being an std but hope it is just hair follicles or something of that nature. they cannot be popped and hurt when i tried to pop one. I havent had sex in about 8 months and these bumps just showed up last week. What are they most likely?

Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.
The condition you are suffering from can be intertrigo,contact dermatitis,furuncle etc.

As there is itching the chances of STD are very rare.
It can be hair follicle infection or friction dermatitis.
Sexually acquired infection would present earlier and will have pain rather than itching.

Consider visiting your GP or dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
You can take tab.Zyrtec for itching till you visit a doctor.

Hope this helps.
