Red line appeared in butt crack. Using Certoid for redness. What should I do ?

Hello. I am a 16 year old female. A few weeks ago, I have started to ride a stationary bike to be more physically fit. However, a few weeks into to, a red line has appeared in my butt crack. It doesn t go all the way down to my anus . I have started using Certoid (it s for enflammed skin, not sure the exact spelling). It has started to lessen the redness. Today, I noticed that one area hurt in particular, and almost seemed brused. What should I be doing/using?

Welcome to Heathcare Magic Physician's Desk!
Please avoid any creams over that area it will increase the moistness and make the things worse.
Rather avoid cycling itself and take to light exercises like jogging to keep fit.
Wear cotton under-garments. You would need to hunt extensively for one because they are making all the fashion in synthetic materials for that age.

Wish you a great health!
