Q:I get really bad acne ON MY BUTT and I don't know how to get rid of it???
as salaam alaikum,
Treating acne is the same whether it’s on the face or other body parts. Think about it. If you got a cut on your face, you would treat it with the same cream as a cut on your arm, right?
I suggest doing the following:
- Use a body wash instead of a soap as the binders that hold soap together can clog pores.
- Use something with salicylic acid, whether it’s a soap or a lotion.
- Apply a benzoyl peroxide cream to the pimples when they appear. Be sure to let it fully absorb/dry before putting on clothes as it will bleach your clothes.
I suggest applying the salicylic acid daily and the benzoyl peroxide every other day at first.
Inshallah, try it for a few weeks and see if they get better. If you still have zits and you don’t see some improvement, consider seeing a dermatologist as they have much more powerful medicine they can give you.
