Infected skin cyst.: This could be an infected sebaceous cyst. You can apply warm compresses several times/day or sit in warm tub. However if it does not improve or you have fever with it, you should see you doctor to have it checked.

Probably no worries: Now that the area is drained it will probably heal on its own. If the redness spreads or does not improve over several days or if you develop a fever - see your doctor

No: Abscess can be secondary to a variety of bacteria. They occur when the sebaceous gland becomes obstructed and then bacteria proliferate. Most important thing is to get evaluated. You likely need an i+d and possibly antibiotics.

Abcess: Pus filled bumps on the skin are the symptom of a skin infection. An abcess can form under the skin without a 'head'. When they red, warm to touch and painful it is called cellulitis. Treatment of this includes oral antibiotics and occasionally drainage. See your doctor ASAP because resistant infections are becoming more common and require special treatment.

Folliculitis: It is likely a local spread of a staph or strep species that is causing you to have an outbreak. Can try chlorhexadine soap / scrub (may have to ask pharmacist where to find it), and if not successful, see your dr / urgent care for antibiotic rx and more specific instruction on how to get rid of.

Butt Acne: The common cause for acne on the butt is similar to one of the culprits that trigger the development of acne on the face: sweat. Sweat traps dirt and oil in the skin thus, clogging the skin pores. When skin pores become clogged, the bacteria that cause acne multiply and form pimples. Treatment is with oral antibiotics like solodyn (minocycline) or Doryx and a topical like epiduo.

Have a hard purple pimple on my buttocks for a few days. How do I take care of this? Doesn't hurt, no puss just hard bump.

Do nothing: If it is due to minor trauma it will reabsorb itself. However, other conditions may mimic a small bleed for the untrained person. If other ones appear or does not go away have it check by a qualified physician.

Suddenly developed itchy white bumps covering my buttocks and out towards my thighs. Have lasted 5 days now. Don't pop like a pimple would.

Itchy bumps: Bay City, MI is a nice place - enjoy! With the itchy white bumps you could contact your primary doctor or, in my opinion better still, please go to the Pharmacist and they will almost certainly recommend something to control your buttocks etc. I don't think you will need a prescription. Hope all goes well - please keep me posted.
