Red buttocks, uncomfortable. Is it herpes or shingles?

Yes I wonder if you can, I will not crack any jokes here, no pun intended, however, I have had this problem with the cheeks of my butt and they are seriously red raw, I have tried all the creams and was advised to stop using them, steroid creams ect and others. I have had it for approximately 4 - 6 months now and as you can imagine, I am starting to get cheesed off with it, as it is extremely uncomfortable, I thought it might be shingles , herpes , or something else not on my wish list so if you can advise me what i can would seriously help improve the quality of my walking ....kind regards ouch!
