Butt acne, otherwise known as “buttne” is the formation of pimples on the butt. Although it is quite common, it is unpleasant. They can be itchy and irritated and unsightly to look at. If you are experiencing a flareup of butt acne, this article will help you identify possible causes and treatments.
What is butt acne?
Butt acne can look like a variety of things, from small blemishes on the butt cheeks to red spots or even a rash. Quite simply, butt acne is zits on your ass. Most of the time they will go away on their own eventually, but if you have someone getting up close and personal with your ass any time soon, we know you will want that clear up sooner rather than later.
Butt acne causes
What causes butt acne? More often than not, blocked pores. Your ass is not actually that different from your face. Pores can get blocked and result in acne just like they can anywhere else on your body.
If it is not caused by blocked pores, then it might be an inflamed hair follicle. These look like pimples but are not actually pimples. You can get an inflamed hair follicle from tight fitting clothes or from sweat. If an inflamed follicle ends up getting infected, it can turn into a boil, which hurts and gets very large.
Buttne can also be caused by some common skin conditions. If you notice that you have acne all over, it is likely from a skin condition like rosacea or folliculitis. If your acne is primarily on your ass, then it is most likely from lack of exfoliating and improper skin care.
Ass acne could also be from genital herpes that has spread to the butt. If you think you might be exposed or have herpes, make sure to go get tested.
Butt acne treatment
