Hi,

As per your query you have rashes on buttocks which is very common as dirt and moisture get trapped by your clothing and the friction that comes from sitting can cause pimple. It could be due to blockage of sebaceous glands leading to folliculitis or boils.

I would suggest you to keep this area clean and dry, apply cream containing azelaic acid, apply warm compresses with soaked towel and apply vitamin C serum at night. If condition doesn't get better then consult dermatologist for proper examination . Doctor will examine physically along with blood test and sample for lab test. Doctor may prescribe immuno-suppressants, antibiotics like Clindamycin, anti inflammatory or anti fungal. Doctor may also prescribe Benzoyl peroxide ointment.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari, Dentist
