Brief Answer: anti fungal treatment Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. The area of buttock is moist and very prone to develop fungal infections. Probably you have developed a fungal inflection and treatment with anti fungal medication is needed. I suggest my patients to use clotrimazole powder twice daily. Apart from being anti fungal, it also absorbs moisture and keep the area dry preventing further infection. Hope this work for you. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
