Female 23: About 2 years ago I started getting painful cystic boils on either side of my anus on the inside of the buttocks. They only appear in that specific vicinity. I am constantly getting new ones. They always grow very large and painful. I take sitz baths and use hot compresses and scrub with gold dial soap. Once they become very large and painful to walk or sit I then try to pop them. (I have had one lanced by a gynecologist in the past). Right now I have 3 of them.
I am thinking of trying zeasorb powder to absorb excess sweat but I am not sure if that will further clog my pores and create more cysts. I also use a bikini trimmer but it gets very close and cuts hair very short. I have stopped using it for about 2 weeks now in case it's causing ingrown hairsView Thread
