I have a friend who have boils spots on back an buttocks, some inflammed. Can u tell me how and y these come about?

From bacteria: Most 'boils' are due to staphylococcus bacteria infecting the skin.Pus forms below the skin which swells to form a painful boil. Sometimes streptococci & pseudomonas may cause boils. Often the 'boil' can be cured by a special drainage procedure performed by your doctor. If the surrounding area is red & angry antibiotics are needed. If untreated the infection can spread to the blood & become dangerous.

I have dark spots on my buttocks from Inflamed hair follicles, per my former dr. How can I prevent this and treat the discoloration? Is benzamycin goo

Prevent and treat: The key is clearance and prevention first, as you noted. Benzamycin topical is good. Sometimes oral antibiotics are needed if severe. Once resolved without new areas, you will see more fading of discolored lesions. Ask your doc about hydroquinone topical fade cream (possible option). Coco bean based or coco butter topicals can help naturally fade remaining marks

Try anti fungal: If you tried cortisone and the rash got worse, it probably is fungal in origin. Try OTC antifungal cream like Lotrimin (clotrimazole) for a week. See a doctor if no improvement. Feel better

Hyperpigmentation: Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation is a frequently encountered problem and represents the sequelae of various cutaneous disorders as well as therapeutic interventions. This acquired excess of pigment can be attributed to various preceding disease processes that affect the skin such as infections, allergic reactions, mechanical injuries, reactions to medications, acne. Use hydroquinone 4% an rx.

Maybe vasculitis??: If it has been there for three years it doesn't seem emergent. He should see a good internist for a thorough work up.

Dry baby skin: It does sound as if your baby has dry skin. Limit bathing to every other day or even every third day to increase moisture in the skin. An unscented creme like Eucerin would help.
