Red line along buttcrack!

Edited , 6 users are following.

I get a red, sore to the touch "line" from my buttcrack into my anus. it doesn't ever itch but burns only to touch. this past week it happened again,and its been here for some time now... it started out a darker shade of red and now after consistently applying a baby diaper rash cream it has settled into a faded slightly shiny pink? I can't go see a doctor about this because I'm in quarantine... I even tried a sitz bath with borax to heal the skin.... any ideas? WARNING: Will attach photos

PS: I'm a 22 year old virgin

    it could be like fungal infection or could be due to sweating... as due to lockdown...most us barely move from couches so due that it might sweat more...could be due to that

    Its most likely from wearing thongs. I get that and my mom told me she used to get that and had to stop wearing thongs Lol

    Have you recently gained weight? As previously mentioned, it might be due to a fungal infection, but it might also be a feature of your skin, I've seen it many times.

      Hi!thank you all for answering me.

      I don't wear thongs,not sure if it could be a fungal infection but i have no way of testing that as I'm stuck at home.

      And no I haven't gained weight. I'm pretty stable usually at 53kg.

    Dear cat,

    A red rash could be caused by a number of conditions. You could have something called natal cleft intertrigo; it's usually caused by candida (thrush), so try applying Canesten cream.

    This appearance can also be caused by skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. So if you have any of these, you'd be better off applying an emollient like Diprobase, Aveeno or E45 cream.

    Hope this helps,

    Adhari
