Today I noticed some strange symptoms on my butt area.
The first thing I noticed was a very small red pimple-like thing on my butt cheek, about 3 inches away from the bottom of my scrotum. It was small and by itself.
The second thing I noticed was another pimple next to my anus. It was red and slightly tender to the touch. It wasn't a blister and I wasn't able to pop because it was basically all pimple, just like a zit a person would have on his or her face.
My questions are:
1) Is the first bump a pimple and do they show up on a person's butt cheek? I hope it's not a wart, but if it is a wart, why would it be by itself on my butt cheek?
2) For the second bump near my anus, why would one large pimple appear right next to my anus? I wasn't able to pop it and it's by itself, so what could it be? It hasn't disrupted me in having a bowel movement.
I'm really worried. Thank you so much for your help.
To answer your questions:
1) Tough to say without seeing it myself, but it is certainly possible to have a pimple in that area. There are a lot of sweat glands, and with exposure to bacteria, can certainly result in a pimple.
2) Again, there are a proliferation of sweat glands near the anus, and pimples are not uncommon in that area. Depending on the size, it can be incised, and that evaluation can be made by your primary care physician or a surgeon.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
