Hello,

You probably have a fungal infection on the skin of your butt. The infection has clogged the mouth of the oil glands causing the formation of small cysts with itching.

Please take the following steps to get better:

- Wash the skin thoroughly wth Cetaphil.

- Dry off well and then apply an antifungal infection like Cruex or Lotrimin , both available OTC.

- At night, apply a mild steroid ointment like 1 % hydrocortisone, available OTC.

- Every alternate day, exfoliate the skin with a good exfoliator cream or lotion - you will find any number of skin exfoliators at the cosmetics counter. Use a scrubber or a small towel to scrub the skin so that the mouth of the glands open up.

I hope this helps.
