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.

Hello, I'm 50 years old. I have Crohn's disease since 1984. I keep it at bay since 1995 by being vegetarian and eating lactose free. (Parmesan cheese older than 30 months is advertised as being lactose free). Recently I have diagnosed myself as having Duhring's disease or Dermatitis Herpetiformis. It was confirmed by a young doctor in the E.R. room at the hospital. So now I'm eating vegetarian, lactose free, and Gluten free too. How long will it take for me to overcome the terrible-looking, itchy skin condition that I have from when I stopped eating Gluten? Thanks so much for your responses. Maurizio Pieroni YYYY@YYYY
