I have got the world's spottiest bottom. It's terrible now as was wearing those tena lady padded pants for ages as had loads of lochia for ages but has never been great since teens and am now 34. Tried scrubs, creams the lot. Just saw it by mistake in bedroom mirror and appalled. Been to doctors ages ago who suggested folliculitus but didn't respond to treatment for that. Never get spots on face or anywhere else but to me looks like serious localised acne. Am fed up! What can I do?

Have you tried diluted dettol? Is good for all spots regardless of location.

Hibiscrub is meant to be fab for acne? I would just treat it like acne on your face, use a good cleanser, spot treatment etc.

I get this and I find that very gentle exfoliation (use a soft body brush) plus a non scented moisturiser (like E45 cream) is the best prevention. Not perfect, but much better.

Tried dettol and hibiscrub and helped a bit but didn't shift it much... Lots of spots sort of under the skin and dark purple marks more than normal over surface red and white spots so not sure dettol would reach them properly sad

Ask your GP to refer you to a dermatologist.

This is pathetic but got new lovey gp who I know would be fab but just can't face getting bottom out again: is almost the position worse than anything as smear tests somehow more anonymous, less bending etc... Do know this is ridiculous but took so much to do it last time then nothing improved suppose an pathetically hoping someone here knows of miracle cure but assume that is ridiculous

Same issue here!

I know this an annoying cliché but your GP really has seen it all before.

Could you take a photo and show the GP? I'm thinking a patch of skin photo rather than I sat on the photo copier type of thing?

It might at least get the ball rolling?
