Blisters in the buttocks crack. Itchy, painful. Not STD. What could it be?

I am M, 29yo. For 5 days I have had some small (less than 1/4 inch) purple blister-type bumps in my upper buttocks crack (not at the tailbone). Do not seem to be spreading, but initially itchy, becoming more painful with sitting. Currently just using Gold Bond to try to keep the area cooler and drier. There is no activity for concern of STD .
