Besides rupturing the mucus membranes of genitals and mouth, this STD can also affect the other body parts especially butt. Sarika M. Ramachandran, M.D., assistant professor of dermatology at New York University Langone Medical Center explained, "It's not uncommon for herpes to infect the skin of your bottom, and the signs would be similar to that of an oral or genital herpes outbreak, including one or more tiny blisters grouped close together."
Fungi generally inhabit the moist and dark portions of your body. Many times your bums rub together thereby producing lots of heat and friction which leads to fungal infection in your butt. Anti-fungal creams can help in combating butt crack.
When dead skin cells and bacteria block the hair follicles on your bum and upper thighs, the hair follicles inflame and cause immense irritation in butt. You can fight back folliculitis by applying any OTC benzoyl peroxide product on your butt. Take certain precautions to avoid folliculitis such as not to avoid bathing after workout and wear fabrics that provide comfort to your bums.
This non-contagious skin infection is caused due to overproduction of skin cells between your lower back and butt crack. Other symptoms of psoriasis include patches or flakes on your elbows, scalp and nails. OTC steroid creams can be used for the treatment of this disorder.
If you prefer to wear stretchy tights all the time, then this is an alarming situation for you. These tights are the major causative agents of eczema as they trap heat or sweat between your skin and synthetic material. This suffocating condition produces itchy and red patches on your butt. You can combat eczema by applying moisturizer or OTC hydrocortisone cream on your butt. Always don breathable all-cotton or natural-fiber material so that your skin gets some fresh air.
Hemorrhoid is caused due to pressure from chronic constipation or pregnancy and results in venous swelling at or inside the anal sphincter. OTC hemorrhoid creams can reduce the pain, inflammation and itchiness in your anus.
