What Causes Boils on Buttocks?
Best Home Remedies and Homeopathy Treatments
Boils on buttocks? Ouch! When a boil forms in this area it's usually due to friction....either from tight clothing, sitting too long, or both.
This area may start out as a little sore spot - like a pimple, but can turn pretty serious as bacteria gets into the skin and could become infected.
If you boil is infected, do not try home remedies for boils! Go directly to your doctor and have him lance it.
If this infection is not treated, it can become very hard and very painful. Sometimes you'll see a big white spot in the very center of the boil.
This is usually pus and infection and it can spread...which is why trying to treat it yourself is usually not a good idea.
So what are these boils and why are they so common? Basically, a boil is a type of skin infection. These skin abscesses usually occur from a bacterium called Staphylococcus aureus. In the beginning the boil start out as a small bump or nodule.
Then it gradually grows bigger as it gets filled with more pus - which is a whitish substance that is highly infectious. You must be very carefully if you drain the boil at home because of this. Boils can become a serious skin condition!

Below, I've listed some natural home remedies for boils including herbal home remedies and organic homeopathic treatments:
