Have Sore And Red Skin Between Bum Cheeks. How To Get Rid Of This?
Thanks for posting your query.
The sore skin tag between the bum cheeks is likely to be due to a fungal infection in the area. Along with the fungal infection there can sometimes be some inflammation which causes redness, itching and peeling of the skin.
The generally best way to treat this is with a topical cream which has both a mild steroid element and an antifungal cream. The active ingredients of this cream includes hydrocortisone and the antifungal clotrimazole. Your doctor will be able to provide you with a prescription for this. The brand name of the cream is Lotrisone.
I would expect the areas of irritation to slowly respond and improve over two to three weeks.
I hope this answers your query.
