Pimples on buttocks

I keep getting these pimples only on my buttocks and sometimes it also grows on the anus causing pain while passing motions. The pimples also hurt when I sit. This is happening for about a year now. I apply some ointment and it goes away and reoccurs. Why does it happen? What kind of doctor do I need to consult with?

Hello there...I can understand your concern. What ointment are you applying? If it's a steroid creams, then it will only exacerbate the condition. What you are trying to describe could be recurrent furunculosis. It is more common among diabetics. So get checked for it once. To review your lesion, consult a dermatologist .
