If you think that acne is the only skin problem you may face, think again. Skin problems can happen literally anywhere – and that precious behind of yours is just as prone to them as any other area! Let’s check out the main issues you may struggle with at some point – and how to cure them.
Just like on your face, pimples can appear on your behind too. “You can get them anywhere you have hair follicles, including your butt,” notes Chicago derm Carolyn Jacob, MD. Oil and dead skin get clogged in the follicle, causing inflammation and a killer zit.
The Cure: Use a benzoyl peroxide cream to destroy acne-causing bacteria. If that doesn’t do the trick, see your dermatologist for prescription topical antibiotics or Retin-A cream.
