bum acne?
Is there such a thing as acne on your bum? I get the odd pimple here and there on my face which normally clears up almost immediately. But these days (about 4 months now) I have a spotty bum. Sometimes it's really sore and looks dreadful. I don't even want my husband to look. It's like acne. What can I do to get rid of this?

This is probably not acne. You may have recurrent boils or other infections. I would suggest that you see your GP for advice.
