You know all those tiny red bumps on your rear end? Pretty annoying, right? Folliculitis, or “butt acne,” as it’s often called, is actually a pretty common condition. Still, if you’d prefer to have an acne-free tush, there’s something you can do about it. Here’s how to get rid of butt acne with the help of our Butt Acne Clearing Lotion.

First things first: What causes butt acne?

Did you know? The acne bumps on your buttocks are not actually pimples! Butt acne, formally known as folliculitis, is a skin condition in which the hair follicles become inflamed, typically from a bacterial or fungal infection. It can also be a combination of folliculitis, mild boils & carbuncles, and sweat rash.

While it’s not a life-threatening condition, it can definitely be a nuisance, causing your skin to feel itchy or sore and even form scars, depending on how severe your case is.[i]

Folliculitis affects millions of people – from young to old, male to female, models to everyday people. In fact, our Butt Acne Clearing Lotion was developed out of a personal need for it! Folliculitis can affect any area of the skin besides the palms and soles[ii], and often affects the buttocks, thighs or lower back. Wearing tight clothing, sitting too long, and excessive moisture are just a few of the main culprits that cause breakouts. Some people may experience breakouts due to other reasons, so be sure to consult your dermatologist.

How to get rid of butt acne

If you’re struggling with bumps on your bum, you have some options when it comes to folliculitis buttocks treatment. Here are some of our favorite home remedies to help you achieve a soft, smooth rear.

Wash regularly

Be sure to take a shower or bath regularly, especially after working out. This helps to clear away sweat and dirt that might otherwise get trapped by your clothes and irritate your skin. It’s also important to wash your clothes, especially sweaty workout clothes and tight-fitting clothing, to help keep your skin nice and clean.


Exfoliating your skin scrubs away dead skins cells that could otherwise contribute to clogged and irritated follicles. It also preps your skin for the absorption of butt acne treatment products. To exfoliate, try using an exfoliating cloth, such as Exfolimate. Our Butt Acne Clearing Lotion also contains alpha hydroxy acids, which gently exfoliate your skin.

Wear loose-fitting clothes

Tight-fitting clothes can trap bacteria and force it into your pores, irritating your hair follicles and causing breakouts. It can also cause friction between your skin and your clothes, resulting in irritation. Wearing loose-fitting clothes – especially those made from cotton – offer a more breathable fit and allow the bacteria to stay at the surface of your skin rather than being pushed down into your pores.

Apply a warm washcloth

By applying a warm washcloth to your skin, you’re using heat to help open up your follicles. This may allow some of the bacteria to drain away without irritating your skin. A warm compress can also gently soothe the affected area of skin. 

Avoid shaving

Shaving can irritate your skin and cause bumps to form. If possible, give your skin some time to rest by setting the razor down for a while. If hairless skin is a must, you might try hair removal creams, although these may still irritate your skin.

Use a specially formulated lotion

Applying a moisturizer that’s been designed to not clog pores and includes soothing ingredients can help relieve your folliculitis symptoms and calm your skin. Butt Acne Clearing Lotion by Green Heart Labs is a lotion designed specifically to treat butt acne. Since butt acne is different from face acne, acne products designed for the face won’t work on the sensitive skin of your buttocks. Created specifically for the buttocks, our lotion features alpha-hydroxy acids that gently exfoliate and moisturize your skin, plus arnica and calendula oils that are tough on acne and speed up skin healing, giving you clear, soft skin. 

How to use Butt Acne Clearing Lotion

Butt Acne Clearing Lotion is easy to use. Simply apply generously to clean skin in the morning and at night – that’s it! It works to clear breakouts on the back, thighs and buttocks, and you’ll likely start seeing results in just 24 hours. Butt Acne Clearing Lotion is an effective option for all skin complexions.
