Embarrassing acne

Typical acne sucks because everyone can see it all the time. It’s right  there on your face for all the world to see.

Although acne on other parts of your body isn’t a problem as consistently as acne on your face, certain situations can evoke serious feelings of embarrassment. This is especially true when you have pimples on your butt.

I know. It’s kind of funny. Those who have the problem, however, probably don’t laugh as easily as others. And it seems to be a fairly common problem, so maybe some of us who are laughing should have a quick over-the-shoulder look in the mirror.

All acne is caused from the same factors. You mix oil with dead skin cells in a follicle, add a few bacteria, and, band, you’ve got acne. This is true regardless of which cheeks it happens on.

So, treating butt acne should be just as easy as treating face acne, right? Well, there are some complications when it comes to treating blemishes down below. First, it’s not  as easy to spot them. Second, and probably most importantly, it’s hard to admit that you have a problem. The easiest solution is to make sure that the lights are turned out before any romance. It’s much harder to say to yourself “I’ve got a bunch of pimples on my butt that seriously need to be taken care of.”

Just know that you’re not alone. There are lots of people who experience the same problem. Need proof, just explore the “amateur” pages of certain websites.

Some of the simplest body acne treatments involve using soaps and shampoos that contain salicylic acid. A small concentration should work well. Also, make sure that you dry off well after taking a shower. Putting clothes on while you’re wet can create some rather nasty environments that won’t help your situation.
