Its probably a friction burn due to the slides. Keep the area clean and dry. If it is worsening please consult your local dermatologist.

Two days ago I woke up with a sharp pain in my left butt... hurts when I go up steps or up a lightly incline hill... no problem going down steps or down incline hill... if I sit long is hurts to get up... annoying during sleeping... I can feel a very very deep small knott in the center of my butt... should I get a massage to work this out - could it be spasm from an exercise class I took Monday night in Pilates mat class? Thank you JoAnn
