Why do i get so many rashes and acnes on my butt cheek?

Why do i get so many rashes and acnes on my butt cheek?

Irritants?: You are still young enough to have acne flares but frequent rashes makes me think of external irritants. Wash all your underwear/pants in sensitive skin laundry products. Use a body wash destined for acne. Always apply a light layer of eczema cream to the skin after bathing. If you sweat a lot spray and antiperspirant (not deodorant) on the skin in the morning and wash off at end of day. ...Read more

Possibly lice...: Lice start out as eggs, but they can hatch and become long and narrow bugs. That would be the most likely answer, but you really need a dermatology evaluation. Treating it is complicated, because you need to use the right shampoo to kill it (http://www.ridlice.com/lice-killing-shampoo.php), AND you need to properly wash and/or dispose of linens, stuffed animals, blankets, etc. ...Read more
