According to the assistant professor of dermatology at the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Jamie MacKelfresh, the acnes that occur on the buttocks are not the same acnes as the ones on the back, face or chest.
MacKelfresh explains that there are two common issues linked with the acne on the buttocks:
Carbuncles: They are much painful as are deeper in the skin and usually the reason for that is untreated folliculitis (the second issue). If is left untreated in can end up with more serious complications and health issues.
Folliculitis: They occur on the skin’s surface and they are usually an infection caused by fungus, yeast, bacteria, irritation of hair follicles or blockage of hair follicles. This issue actually is outbreak of acne that the reason is inflammation of hair follicles.
Below we are going to write several methods on which you can solve the problem with acne on the buttocks.
Natural acne remedies
For this purpose use Aloe Vera gel. Simply apply this gel on the affected area. Another natural method is applying tea tree oil through the entire day. You can clean the skin with lemon juice, as well. You can try wet baking soda as mask. As moisturizer you can utilize coconut oil.
Exfoliation is process of elimination of the dead skin cells and this is one of the best methods to get rid of acne. There are various ways in which you can exfoliate your skin, but carefully choose the one that will not irritate your skin.
Pay attention to your nutrition
Unhealthy nutrition can cause development of acne. Avoid consummation of refined sugar and processed foods. By consuming healthy fats you can keep your skin clean and healthy. Tree nuts, coconut oil or avocados contain healthy fats.
Allow your skin to breathe
Avoid wearing tight clothes as thus you allow the bacteria to infect the pores. That actually stimulates the natural process of sweating. It is extremely important regularly to change your clothing. For instance, you need to change your yoga pants after workout.
