Embarassing Pimples / Boils on Buttocks
Good day,

I am suffering from embarassing pimples / boils on my buttox and upper legs.

I've always had some occasional ones, but since November last year, for no reason I can think of, this condition has just worsened! They are even occasionally painful now, opposed to just being sensitive to the touch.

Please help! I need to know the factors contributing to this so that I can try and cure this horrible horrible problem!

I do not have a medical aid and would rather not go to a doctor for this if at all possible. I am hoping that there is a diet-adapting cure for this. If not, medication is the way I will go as the cause of this may also affect my health in other ways later if I do not do something about this now.

You will be my HERO if you can help me figure this one out!

Thank you
