Butt crack peeling skin. My skin is literally peeling away. It started just along the line of the butt crack and now its getting bigger.

Hi my skin is literally peeling away. It started just along the line of the butt crack and now its getting bigger. Like its peeling away and reveals more darkened skin. When i pull at the line of skin, it comes away. Like its dead skin, in small layers. Its very irrating when i wear thongs as it becomes a little bit swollen and sensitive. I m so embarrased to go to my doc and tell her hi, my butt crack is peeling . Please help me.

Many a times it is not exactly the skin that is pealing but the exudates that ooze after itching form a thin crust which peel off easily and again from margins there is oozing. Avoid moisture in the region, dust some powder and have some combination of blood purifying herbs. Here we use neem , manjishtha, turmeric based compounds.

Hi,thanks for query.You must be having some skin infection and fungal infection is likely.Unless treated properly this will not cure.Due to presence of moisture this are the common place for such infection.Avoid wearing tight fitting clothes,keep the area dry,apply some antifungal cream over the area,take anti allergic tab for itching and see your doctor for proper treatment.
wishing you good health.
