Suffering with eczema, have a scar on the opening of butt crack, intermittent mucus discharge. Cause?

at the beginning of my butt crack I have this scar , it s only taken off the top layer of skin, my skin looks as if it is bleeding but it is not, every now and then mucus like stuff will come out, it doesn t have a smell. I also have ezema so I m not sure if that would play a part in this? I have applied triam and Vaseline to help heal it

I would be pleased to answer your question.

You seem to be having an eczema . You should continue to apply the moisturizer however , an addition would be combination of a steroid and antibiotic cream would be essential . Addition of the antibiotic would be the key in treating the condition as the cleft area is the site where the bacteria persists and aggravates the condition.

Thanks and Take care
