Open sore on buttocks, painful, not itchy. Used baby powder. Should I put cream?

This has happen before and never completely gone away but is worse right now. I have an open sore at the top-ish part of my buttcrack. It is very painful and feels raw. It isn't itch but I don't know what to do. I tried to use baby powder and that made it worse. I've been trying to keep it dry and use witchhazel soap on it. Should I put cream on it too?

Hi, you are having intergluteal intertrigo. Apply clotrimazole with antibiotic cream twice a day. Take sitz bath in dettol containing water. Take antibiotics, anti fungal and pain killers for 2 to 3 weeks..avoid soap bath. Dry the area affected completely before wearing clothes. Avoid heavy physical work. Avoid worries and stress. Rule out DM by blood testing for sugar. ... I hope you will recover completely.. Ok
