Butt sores

I am a 23 year old female. I have been developing these very painful to the touch sores on my butt and around that area. They are very painful and full of puss. They get quite large. I was wondering if you can tell me what this may be.

They are probably boils.  Put a hot compress on them and bring them to a head...they need to drain to heal.

The above comments are fair enough,but an antibioic creme like mupurocin will help further.

Thank you very much for your advice! Will this Mupurocin creme get read of them forever? If not, What can i do to stop them from coming back? After i drain them, they always come back, somtimes not in the same spot.

A course of iron as suppliment has helped me to recommend in practice to prevent recurrences.

Is Mupurocin an over-the-counter creme or do you need a prescription?
