What are these red coloured bumps in my butt ?

Hello, uhm, this is awkward. I have a couple of red bumps on my butt. One is larger and more red than the other. They don t hurt or anything. I am also not hairy and I have good hygiene, I take two showers a day. One more thing, I know you re doctors, but do you think my boyfriend minds that they re there. He s seen me with them before and he seems like he doesn t care, but I don t know. I know the bumps aren t zits, though, they don t have heads. When they come up, they never do. They re just red...that s really it. Not hurting, no nothing, just red and unattractive.

hi
it is common to have red bump like lesion on butt without any symptoms.
it may be due to friction over it while seating .
it may be dermatitis.
all u need to do apply clotrimazole powder in morning after bath
and hydrocortisone and antibiotic cream at night.
try this ,it will surely work.

Hi, I have had UTI like symptoms for 5 years. I have had many, many cultures - all neg. I have also had a bladder ultrasound - again normal, I have tried creams for dermatitis etc. I just read recently that Latent TB can show symptoms of a UTI - 5 years ago - when symptoms first appeared, I was working in an orphanage in Central Asia (ex-soviet state) when drug resistant TB was rife and visiting children regularly in a TB hospital, so I have definitely been exposed. I had terrible pneumonia last year which took a long time to diagnose, and for a while they suspected TB but it didn t show up in my lungs. Could it still possible cause for my UTI - is it worth getting checked?

I am a female and am 12 years old and i have eczema(dermatitis). I have had these small red bumps and a rash on my left inner thigh. It really hurts when I walk. I have looked up a lot of info and some say it can be due to eczema. I usually always have rashes. I have had this rash with small red bumps for one week going on two weeks. I am super scared and nobody knows. I have put a warm washcloth with warm water on it for about a half hour and it just goes down a bit then starts again. I am not in any sexual incourse and I am super scared. Please help me. I dont know if it can get worse. Please.

I have a red rash on my chest. I was wondering if it could have been caused by red rice yeast. I had been taking one tablet until about two weeks ago, my gp suggested I up the dosage to two, then eventually three. I have not changed laundry detergent; in fact, I use the dye-free detergent. Could it be caused by a virus? Or is it dermatitis? I did have a rash on my hand this past spring which I thought was caused by contact with my horses hay. I was careful to use gloves and it went away. It seems to me I remember reading that yeast causes rashes. Thank you.
