  • Usually it is caused by Staph aureus. Try putting one capfull of pine sol mop and floor cleaner in 2 inches of bath water and soak your butt 5-10 minutes several times a week for about a month. This should prevent recurrence.

  • My nephew had MRSA and it all started with 3 boils on his butt. They looked like zits, then spider bites, then they started oozing green puss. The doctors had to lance and drain all three. It took my sister and her family (they all got it) 9 months to get rid of it. they had advised her to change the dressings several times a day, don't get them wet, do NOT let the sores touch any other part of your body or it will spread; she had to bleach her house everyday. This almost sounds like MRSA, and he needs to get on antibiotics STAT! MRSA will NOT go away by itself and it is very dangerous and highly contagious. DRAG him to the doc if you have to! Good luck.

  • Actually, it sounds like a completely benign- yet very painful- condition that I have had most of my life called Pilonidal Cyst. There is a cyst based at the center of the tail bone that becomes inflamed. The infected fluid goes through "sinuses" that branch out through the buttocks and form boils. I always knew when mine were acting up because it would feel like I was sitting on a lump (the cyst), then my butt cheeks would begin hurting, and within a few weeks the boils would appear. It is more common in men then women (though I am female) and heavier-set people (though I am thin). There is a surgical option, though I never went that route as it is a painful surgery/recovery; they must leave the wound completely open and it has a high rate of reoccurring. Your best bet is to soak the boils as much as possible in warm, wet washcloths. This will make the boils erupt faster and then the pain is basically eliminated. You can also have them lanced, but I never did that. As far as prevention goes, try not to sit on the area for long periods of time and if you have to, sit on a soft pillow (such as, if you have a desk job). That's all I know to say. Good luck; it sucks.

  • Hi there, I want to help you out because I had this problem for a while and you start to feel subconscious about yourself and it's really irritating. Now mine are 99% neutralized and this is how I did it. Well I'm currently 17 and I'd say the boils started around when I turned 16 I think. At first I thought it was just something that went away quickly but mine kept coming back and left nasty red bumps on my buttocks and when those went away left nasty scars that were extremely noticeable. What I did at first was take warm baths and used antibiotic soap and washed the infected areas. This really helps but for me didn't completely solve the problem. I then went to the doctors and they gave me Benzoyl Peroxide 10%. They gave it to me for my face acne (even though I have almost none) but instead I applied it to my buttocks since the stuff is so strong. Over time they started to neutralize. To take care of the scarring (I know this may sound odd but it worked for me) I used the tone revitalizer that comes in the Proactive pack on my **m and it started to make the scars go away. The stuff that you use for your face acne actually helps a whole lot when you apply it to other areas on your body. I know there are other products out there meant for other places besides the face but face acne treatments worked just as well on my butt. So remember wash the infected area everyday in warm water and with anti-biotic soap. Apply the cream to your buttocks afterwards. I also used anti-biotic creams which really helped. Then after that I applied tone stuff to make the scarring go away. This doesn't all happen in a matter of a week, it takes time so don't expect sudden result. If you're patient it will go away over time. I am extremely happy now that my problem is pretty much gone. I can look at my buttocks and not notice boils or remarkably nasty scars. I hope this helps.

  • My 2 1/2 year old daughter has had boils on her butt a few times now. The first time it occurred, it looked like just a few pimples or maybe some sort of diaper rash. Then, the pimples got bigger and spread all over. Before I knew it there was a very large boil, about the size of a quarter on her left butt cheek, and another down behind her right knee. They had yellowish/greenish puss-filled heads about the size of the tip of a permanent marker. We took her to her pediatrician because a family member advised us that most boils are caused by staff infections, and sure enough, she was diagnosed with MRSA. The doctor put her on an oral antibiotic, Sulfameth Trimeth, and a topical antibiotic Mupirocin that needs to be applied directly to the boils. She now has another boil on her butt cheek that just popped up out of nowhere and accompanied with it are smaill red blod spots all over her chest, neck and face. She also has a low grade fever that seems to be climbing no matter what I do. So, I've been panicking all day that she has sepsis, which is an infection of the blood stream that can be life threatening. We'll know whether or not I'm just a worrywort tomorrow because I'm taking her back to the pediatrician. Boils are nooooo joke! They have to be looked at by a doctor, whether you can afford it or not.

  • hi i have a boil on my butt .had to go to the doctors they draned it and now .i have two more growing .they will not stop growing on my butt .why is this happening to me:( :( :eek:Sounds like STAPH INFECTIONS. It could be super serious if it enters the bloodstream fully. I would be sure to take at least a CIPRO level antibiotic 1,000mg for at least 15 days in a row, don't skip or stop the drugs.Also try to take an EXTRA shower each day. Make sure the shower is so hot you can just barely tolerate it, try to rub the area with the hot water for at least 10-15 minutes extra per day.Be Well. And PLEASE LET US KNOW HOW THIS WORKED AND HOW YOU'RE DOING??:)

  • First off, stay away from all of those useless home remedies. They are simply a waste of time and not effective. Secondly, go to your doctor and demand, let me say that again...demand, a long-term low dose antibiotic treatment. If that does not work, demand they put you on Vancomycin because the staph aureus is most likely methacillin resistant staphylococcal aureus (MRSA). If that doesn't work, demand Methacillin be used treat the boil. They may want to attempt a culture to figure out the exact type of bacteria that is causing it, but that is not usually successful. Therefore, be demanding about the treatment they give you. Additionally, sterilize sterilize sterilize. Your office, house, car, clothes, furniture, bedding, mattress, bath towels, toilet, etc. You can't even begin to clean too much or too often to get rid of the bacteria at your home. You need to do this on a regular basis for several months. Bleach is best, but where bleach cannot be used, use ethyl alcohol--Lysol can be used in areas bleach or ETOH cannot be used. Wash all clothing/bedding on hot cycle and run the cycle twice. It is important that anyone with these types of boils gets treated, stays on the treatment, and treats their office, home, and cars to ensure these are not spread to other people. The risk is, once these continue to spread, mutate, and evolve, no antibiotic will be effective and the infection will begin entering peoples blood stream causing a septic condition in which death will follow. Take this seriously and ignore the useless "home remedies" that are out there.W.M.E., RN-BA/BSN

Take this seriously and ignore the useless "home remedies" that are out there.W.M.E., RN-BA/BSNI personally HAD the MRSA variant of STAPH and was given CIPROFLAXIN for exactly one month. The month is up, the area looks luch better and I was given no gov't required hygiene courses to stop the next infection. I have read since then that STAPH is very very common, it is more common that most of the illnesses we all go to the hospital for. Staph is everywhere too, not just in dirty places or on dirty people. Some of the most clean people on earth get STAPH and sometimes it takes their life.I remember being in the hospital visiting a friend and noticed the nurses would squirt the cleaning gel onto their hands when they came IN and again when they LEFT the room. I learned later this was to keep down on things like MRSA and STAPH. I barely helped. The level of infection from STAPH was decreased around 5%:o and this was with all the washing and cleaning these nurses could do in a shift."Stay clean and stop STAPH" reminds me of the old wives tale that cold weather CAUSES the Cold and Flu.Also, of the MILLIONS of homeless people in America you'd think they would be the group most likely to have STAPH when admitted to the hospital. They don't:D. And remember, we're talking about a group of people who do not bath or clean themselves in any manner for months at a time and even they don't have vast amounts of STAPH.If you get STAPH then find a doctor, get the meds, take those meds and go on with your life. You are not a new person and you did NOT do anything to cause the STAPH to infect you.

WHAT IS THIS AND HOW CAN I STOP IT?! it hurts to sit stand anything and i wont dare show my butt to my boyfriend so our sex life is a bit held back. help me please? =(((( This is quite a common thing, you really need to go to your doctors & get a course of antibiotics, they can start by a little hair growing inwards then becomes infected. One thing I have found useful to get them to come to a head is using clinique clarafying lotion & then good antiseptic cream, this seems to get them to draw quicker than anything else I have ever tryed. I use this a couple of times daily sometimes more. This can be a painful condition that can slowly get worse over time, if this happens they get deep set & hard to contain. I actually use clinique lotion now all the time as it helps keep them at bay or if they do flare they never cause as big a problem as they use too. Clinique products can be expensive, you could try another product thats maybe cheaper but is a good cleanser, & remember the antiseptic cream, use loads. Best wishes.....:) Ohhhh also its not cancer, these are common things, sometimes get worse around period times......see your doctor & get a course of antibiotics.

Again, go to your doctor he/she will look at them & give you a course of antibiotics. Having had melanoma myself at the age of 11, there was no pain involved, it did not present as an inflamed boil. Your doctor will know to look at it. "ya hear alsorts here".......:eek: Best wishes.........:)
