Strep throat: Strep throat associated with a rash can be seen with scarlet fever but the rash would be nonbumpy and generalized. The itchy buttock rash suggests an allergic reaction? To antibiotics or some substance that came in contact with your buttocks. Erythema nodosum is another type of skin lesions that can follow a strep infection.

So keep an eye(take a photo for future comparisons) and look over them once every 2-3 months to see if they increase in size or change in color. if they do then you need to get a medical checkup. ...Read more

What's wrong? (red, hard, tender, swollen, noitch, painful, lump, nopus, in-grown) inner-left buttock; half-year long;teen;good hygiene;no drugs no doctor apt.

Perianal abscess: This is most likely a perianal abscess. You can think of it sort of like a pimple. It's basically a gland that gets clogged and then infected with bacteria. Don't worry, it usually doesn't have anything to do with hygeine. Try sitting in a warm bath with epsom salts to help soften up the area.

What are some ways you can cure or treat a bed sore and will the treatment cause pain in the buttocks region?

What are some ways you can cure or treat a bed sore and will the treatment cause pain in the buttocks region?

Basic treatment: Bedsores are caused by unrelieved pressure on the soft tissues overlying a bony area. The key is to get them off and keep them off the area to allow healing. Once damaged, the tissues heal through inflammation which is the bodies way to get fresh healing blood to the injured area. As the damaged nerves heal, they let you know by causing pain which is a good sign. Motrin and advil (ibuprofen) slow down healing. ...Read more
