Scabs appearing

Patient

Q: I have had these small scabs appear on my buttocks and I didn't know if it could be acne or possibly a bug/spider bite, I have never been sexually active and I have had no injury for those scabs to be there, I was wondering what they possibly are?

A:   Hello,

Thanks for your health query on ATD.
The scabs, as it appears to be secondary to bacterial infection. When these lesions heals they leave behind scabs.

Initially the lesions are itchy or painful. Later they may cause only itching. I would recommend you to use Bactoban cream twice in a day over the lesions as well as around anus.

Hope this will give you relief in a week.
Regards
