Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.Yes it is fungal infection on your buttocks.Orally you take flucanozole 150 mg every week for 4 weeks and cetrizine in night.For local application use clotrimazole lotion twice daily instead of tinaderm as imidazoles like clotrimazole is better than tolnaftate (tinaderm) .FLUCONAZOLE is available in market by names of SYSCAN,ZOCON,FORCAN etc.Thanks and good luck.
