This a situation that is very bad and will be less at times but always there.Running sores. The proxide has been the only thing that helps to any degree! The sores are about the size of a penny

I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,I will advise that you see a physician who can do a physical exam,as underlying infectious pathology(staph) is most likely responsible for your recurrent butt sores as you described.Meanwhile I will advise that you get over the counter mupirocin which will help subside your symptoms.
Also ask the physicain to check your fasting blood glucose as impaired fasting blood glucose can predispose you to get recurrent sores too,so this too needs to be ruled out.
