acne on buttocks
i've had acne forming on my buttocks for a month now, they are big cysts that can't be popped. they are irritating sometimes itchy. i was taking a lot of antiobiotics before this happened and i've also had some digestion problems. gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea. i think i may have celiac dieseae or candidiasis or both and i am sensitive to foods i eat now. and the acne seems to get worse near my period and i have sugar cravings also, if i eat sweets it gets worse. could someone help me with some advice? i am going back to my doctor on monday...

They may be boils and not cysts.  I ask that you have your blood sugar tested.

thank you. i think it is a pilonidal cyst, abcess (boil) which forms on the buttocks. i have more than one, and they keep coming back. i read it can't be treated by antibiotics. but i'm not sure how i got these, maybe from taking all the medications i took? i will be sure to get my blood tested again!!
