Recurring itchy spot on inner butt cheek. Cause and cure?

I have a spot on inner buttock cheek, is itchy, if I press it it feels like a hole covered by soft skin. Had it 3 weeks ago, it was a hard lump when I felt it that time, then it looked like a broken blister ... It went away... Now it s back ? Any help please. Thank you. Sorry I went through the process but have no way to pay. Thanks anyways.

Thanks for the query.

you might have developed a fungal infection,

It is called as tinea cruris.

It is common in folds of skin like butt crack.

You need treatment with oral as well as topical antifungals.

Try to keep the area dry,

You can also use powder to maintain dryness.

Take some anti histamine tablet also,

This will give you relief from itch.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
