Folliculitis.: What you are describing could be folliculitis which is simply inflammation of the extremely small hair follicles which are present in that area. Folliculitis can be asymptomatic, or it can be itchy. Try using some over the counter Cortaid (hydrocortisone) twice daily for a week, but if that does not take care of it, see your dermatologist. You may need something prescription strength. ...Read more

Bite.: How long ago were you bitten? That description makes me think of the possibility of Lyme disease. Was it a tick that bit you? If so, do you still have it, because if you do it can be sent for tick analysis to determine the species. If not, you should obtain serologic markers for Lyme disease in the near future. ...Read more

Noticed 8 spread out red bumps on buttock cheek this morning, slightly itchy. Not puss filled or blisters. Never had anything like this b4. Herpes??

Noticed 8 spread out red bumps on buttock cheek this morning, slightly itchy. Not puss filled or blisters. Never had anything like this b4. Herpes??

Probably not herpes: Herpes simplex (HSV) outbreaks typically are a cluster of blisters or sores (which can start as red bumps) very close to one another. Usually the whole involved area is no more than an inch in diameter. Conceivably herpes zoster (shingles), but probably not unless the bumps become blisters then sores with dark scabs over a few days. See a doctor if it continues or you remain concerned. Good luck. ...Read more

I have this very painful bump on my butt cheek, it seems to reoccur every other month. Hurts to sit down and is inflamed, any treatments?

Herpes?: If it reoccurs in exactly the same location and completely disappears in between outbreaks it may be Herpes 1 or Herpes 2. The other possibility is recurrent boils due to Staph infection. An online consultation at Health Tap with images of the painful bump is suggested. Sharp photos including closeups are needed. Otherwise see your physician the next time you get an outbreak. ...Read more

I have a painful bump that developed on my butt cheek; it's not on or close to anus. Could it be a hemorrhoid? I often have to sit on wooden benches.

I have a painful bump that developed on my butt cheek; it's not on or close to anus. Could it be a hemorrhoid? I often have to sit on wooden benches.

Simply NO: A hemorrhoid is an anal process, so a bump on the buttock is some form of carbuncle. In this day and age, MRSA infections arise as random areas of pustules. And, it is possible it may have been caused by a splinter - I don't know. You should get this seen, either in a prompt care of doctor's office, and soon if you are diabetic. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a large swollen painful bump on my butt cheek it's in the crease of the bottom of my rear and leg I can't sit have any idea what it might be?

Possible abcess: Sounds like you may have developed an abcess (a collection of pus/infection) in that area. If this is the case, you need tobee seen by a medical professional who can see if the pus needs to be drained out and possibly antibiotics. This should not get put off as these things can get very bad and the infection can spread, including into your body. ...Read more

1st metatarsal head painful to touch, but there is no bump, redness, or swelling. Why would this be hurting?

We're on the bone: Is it painful? If on the bottom a sesamoid injury or plantar plate injury is possible. If on the side a tight shoe could of been a culprit. If on top, it is possible a tendon is irritated......sometimes underlying tissue can be irritated without there being lots of swelling.... ...Read more

How to treat painful red boil on inner right butt cheek with head that bleeds and has puss when I squeeze? Has a purplish tint to area

How to treat painful red boil on inner right butt cheek with head that bleeds and has puss when I squeeze? Has a purplish tint to area

May need surgery!: Simply draining (even by a doctor), squeezing, or treating with antibiotics may not eliminate this infected sebaceous cyst. The cyst sac that produces sebum must be surgically excised to prevent its recurrence. If not, infection may actually end up destroying enough tissue that once healed it won't recur, but this is backwards "treatment." have a surgeon look at this and deal with it definitively! ...Read more

I had a red bump on my bum cheek (close to inner thigh crease) It looked and felt like a painful pimple, now it looks popped and looks like a sore.

Pimple: This sounds like a small abscess caused by an infected hair follicle. It can be really warm and painful. Usually when it drains, will feel better but you should keep a close eye on it and keep it clean. If the pain worsens or the site starts looking worse, see your doctor because it might become more infected. ...Read more
