I had a red bump show up on my hip about 2 weeks ago, it went away, and now the skin is red and dry where the spot was. Now I have 3 spots on my butt. One is on my left cheek near my butt crack and is very tiny, doesn't hurt or itch and is almost gone and is dry and the skin is red still. The other two are on my right butt cheek. They are about 3 inches apart. One is small, doesn't itch or hurt and has pretty much gone away and now looks dry and the skin where the spot was is red. The other one is larger, was a little tender, felt kind of hard but is getting smaller and starting to look dry and now itches. I am not sure if these are bug bites, an alergic reaction of some sort (i have very sensitive skin) or if it could be something like genital herpes (although they aren't clustered, and one was on my hip 2 weeks ago?). Or do you have any suggestions as to what these spots could be?
They certainly don't sound the least bit like genital herpes. (They're too far away from each other, have lasted too long, etc.) I suggest you apply some bacitracin or neosporin on the spots at bedtime and otherwise leave them alone. If they persist or spread, you can always have a doctor take a look.
