What Is Butt Acne?
Simple – it’s acne on your butt. Butt acne usually occurs as a result of clogged hair follicles on your butt.
What Causes Butt Acne?
Butt acne is caused when the hair follicles are infected by Staphylococcus aureus (or staph bacteria). This infection of the hair follicles is also referred to as folliculitis.
The staph bacteria are always present on the surface of your skin – and they cause no harm. But if there is a break in your skin, these bacteria can enter inside and cause infections. A boil or acne is almost always a result of such infections.
Folliculitis bumps or butt acne look similar to acne. That is, they are usually red with a white pus-filled bump in the center. These bumps can become quite itchy and uncomfortable in the long run. In some cases, they may even leave scars behind. Don’t worry, they can be cured easily. Here is a list of some of the best home remedies that can help you treat butt acne.
