Hi. I have dry, itchy, scalpy, flaky, cracking skin around my anus and on buttlocks. It itches very bad. How can I treat that?

It sound to me: By the areas involved that you may have PSORIASIS!

My suggestion is that you start by seeing a Board Certified Dermatologist...there are many TREATMENTS if that is the diagnosis.

Over the counter steroid (cortisone) is a FIRST AID you can try....but check with your PCP for any other treatment if you cannot see a Dermatology specialist soon!
Hope this helps!
