In general, acne can be uncomfortable no matter where it forms on your body. Here is how to treat the annoying red itchy and painful bumps.
- Wash regularly
Personal hygiene is very important for general health. Use antibacterial soap to bath morning and evening to get rid of dirt and bacteria buildup from sweat.
- Avoid fabric softeners
You should always check the ingredients used to manufacture laundry detergent before using it. That is why most brands of laundry detergent have a hypoallergenic version. If you suspect that detergent, fabric softeners, or dryer sheets may be causing you issues, switch to something without dyes or skip certain products altogether.
- Saltwater solution
Salt helps to cleanse pores deeply, balance oil production and thwart bacteria that can instigate breakouts and acne.
Mix 1 teaspoon of table salt with 2 cups of water and apply it the solution with a washcloth to areas with butt acne twice daily for a week.
Gently cleansing and occasional exfoliating of your skin can help to remove any dead skin cells. Use cocoa butter, coconut oil, or a mild exfoliating wash helps get rid of dead skin cells and dirt that could contribute to clogged follicles and infection.
