Red skin around anus, severe sweating, irritation, inflammation. Treatment?

The skin around my anus is for the most part always red, I have seen my personal physician and also my dermatologists and they both said it was not any fungal infection or infection in general. They told me my severe sweating when I am at work etc is irritates my skin and makes it inflamed. I have had this for years and sweating seems to make it worse
