Hello, around the end of november I noticed between my lower buttcheeks there were tiny pink bumps, not grouped together, but 3 right in a row on each buttcheek. They were not painful at all, until i started messing with them then they became slightly tender. I picked at them at first, then poked them with a needle and applied antibiotic ointment. The ones on one cheek went away after about 2-3 weeks, the others on the opposite side remained as bumps, I picked them again and they bled and remained, finally I started putting bactroban on them and the bumps went away, but now there are tiny scars where they were, the ones that scarred were there for 5-6 weeks. Again, they were not painful or itchy untill I stabbed them with a needle. I do shave that area, which probably doesnt need shaving, and I mostly shave with water, I would like to know what they sound like, I have been freaking out about herpes, but from what I have read, they wouldnt last that long, and most likely would be hard bumps that stayed, help please...I need to start sleeping again.
It can be due to folliculitis. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful.
