Okay so just recently I began to have these sort of like dry skin areas on my butt.. At first it was one right above my butt and then more came below.. Then I have some small dry skin spots where my hair would be on my vagina .. Above my clitaurus.. And around it also.. Not on my lips but around it.. Could I have an STD ?

Hi,
No, not at all... It is not STD.
Dry skin on buttock and few scaly spots in pubic area would be fungal infection.
Most probably candidosis ...
It is caused by Candida albicans.
It is contageous and infectious skin disease.
You should be consulted by dermatologist for firm diagnosis.
Blood tests may be done to rule out DM,HIV and other internal diseases.
It can be cured by antifungal tablets and cream.
Improve hygiene and immunity.
Have nutritious food.
Avoid soap, you can take bath with water containing dettol.
I think you might improve.
I hope you got my answer.

Thanks.
