Brief Answer:
try anti-fungal cream

Detailed Answer:
Hello, I am sorry that you are having this problem. It is fairly common to have some yeast infection around the rectal area. Try an over the counter antifungal cream like lamisil (terbenifine) twice a day for one week and see if that helps. If not you may need to see a doctor to get a diagnosis. The lotions could be making the situation worse and if it is yeast and not bacteria then the antibiotic cream would not be helpful. If if gets very red, painful and angry then you may need oral antibiotics so if that happens see a doctor right away.
I hope it is better soon,
Dr. Robinson
