Acne or pimples on the buttocks, like those found elsewhere, are often caused by hormonal imbalance. In order to address the imbalance, we need to understand which hormones are out of balance.

The typical imbalance with acne is higher levels of androgen (male type hormones). Testosterone and to a lesser extent DHEAs, increase oil production on the skin, leading to increased bacteria growth and acne.
Causes For Higher Levels Of Androgen

What causes higher levels of androgen is often dietary. Consumption of carbs and sugars increases the need for insulin. Insulin stimulates greater production of androgen. Insulin also increases inflammation which can make hair follicles on your buttocks more red and inflamed. Spikes in blood sugar from consuming carbs and sugars also lowers your immune function so that your body doesn’t fight off bacteria on the skin as much as it should.
The Solution
