My 15 year old son has suffered for a couple of years now with recurring sores on his buttocks, normally in the area between his two cheeks.

This is the only place he gets these sores. They look like little bug bites, they itch, he scratches, they scab over and scar.

It is not scabies, bed bugs, fleas, etc. We've had those things ruled out.

We have tried different methods of trying to get rid of them, but they eventually come back.

He does state that his buttocks do on occasion itch in the area where the sores come up. Also, please note, the sores are not there all the time, just on occasion. But once he has an outbreak, it takes a good bit of time and doing my best to control the situation.

I have seen other postings at other sites where there are people out there dealing with this same type of situation with no help and no diagnosis.

Any advice or ideas on what it could be would be helpful! Thank you.

Thanks for your time!
