Hi Tburk,

I followed your question. I am Dr. Bora.

These bumps looks like follicle infection in yoour butt.

DO NOT SCRATCH THE AREA, you are likely to spread the infection.

Just keep it clean and apply mupirocin or polymyxin B ointment.

This should clear the bumps.

If you have any further question, I would be happy to help you.

where did they come from? Any can they reappear again?

Expert:  Dr. R. Bora replied 1 year ago.

They are likely from bacteria around your anus which is normal in that area.

This is something NOT to be worried about.

Just apply the ointment that I mentioned which are available OTC.

And make sure you wear clean cotton inner wear. Sweat in that area can also predispose to infection.

They are not likely to come back if you apply the cream to clear off the infection and avoid scratching the bumps.

If you have any further question, I would be happy to help you.

I hope my answer has helped you. Please leave behind a positive feedback if you liked my answer to give credit for my time and expertise. Bonuses are warmly appreciated.
