Hey iw as just reading over the board about previous topics and i found on about pimples on youre butt.
I have them too and was wondering what products to use and also i readin a magazine tha to stop getting them that you should exfoliate and moisturise it to stop your pores clogging up and found it to b a pretty good idea.

I doubt there are special products for your butt alone but I would say that a fragrance free body cleanser would be your best bet.

Neutrogena has some fab stuff.

Butt pimples work the same way as all other pimples. So just keep your body clean and you should be fine. If the pimples irritate you, you could always see a dermatologist.

You shouldn't actually exfoliate everyday because exfoliating too often can dry out your skin, depending on what skin type you are.

Many years ago, I worked for a skin-care expert.

She validated what Lin has said. In fact, she said that a simple soft washcloth was as coarse as anyone should be using on their skin daily, because sloughing the skin too much can cuase premature wrinkling and damage as you NEED the top layer of your skin for protection.

Once a week or less, using a different exfoliant on your body like a salt rub, or an oat or rice bran scrub is fine, but do be gentle with your skin.

Overwashing as well can cause your skin to compensate for oil loss by producting MORE oil, not less.

So, just practice sensible skin care: wash your skin once or twice daily with a gentle cleanser and a washcloth, try and keep things that can irritate it (like harsh detergent residues in your clothes, etc.) away from it, and if you have a serious problem with acne, see a dermatologist.

(Also, be aware of what you put INTO your body. Drinking plenty of water and eathing healthfully can make a big difference. And if you aren't getting enough daily vitamins and minerals that support cellular function, like vitamins E, A and D, and the mineral zinc, consider supplementing.)

I heard that really hot water can cause but pimples. Plus your butt is a very sensitive part of your body since you hardly ever expose it. I like the aprocot scrub. i=It has the little srubbers in it and it makes your skin feel nice. To tell you the truth I really never use it on my butt. I always just used soap and water and that seemed to work fine. But as Lin said everyones skin type is different so you should use a wash that best suits you.

To add to what everyone else has said, there are also times where you break out in certain places. Acne doesn't just happen on the face, but it can occur anywhere. As they've said the odd pimple on your bum will happen just like anywhere else from a large factor of reasons and there is no miracle cure. Good luck with it

Also wareing really tight jeans, or pleather/leather pants can make you brake out on your butt b/c the pores cant "breath"

The only thing I can think of is this one body wash. Neutrogrina (sp?) makes it, its called something along the lines of Acne Body Wash. Ergh, I can't remember the exact name, but if you saw it, you'd know what it was.

I don't know why, but I found the words 'butt pimple' extremely funny.

I treat them just like any other pimples.

I use nutrogena products when I get a breakout.
