Rash: Such a rash can be seen in herpes or,if it's only on one side,shingles.

In any case, dryness is the key to recovery. After bathing or showering, dry the area as well as you can. You might consider a hair dryer to help (set on cold, don't burn yourself) and then use baby powder or nystatin powder. The key to success is dryness! ...Read more

Can taking oil of oregano internally for GI issues cause a rash around butt crack? Or is the rash related to my tummy issues, ie yeast overgrowth?

Can taking oil of oregano internally for GI issues cause a rash around butt crack? Or is the rash related to my tummy issues, ie yeast overgrowth?

Unlikely unless...: Oil of oregano may cause rashes when applied topically but may rarely cause rashes when taken internally in people who are allergic to oregano.
It is far more likely this is related to intestinal yeast. You can try a cream with tea tree oil on your rash.
I advise you also take probiotics and follow a diet low in simple carbs. Also consider taking Yeast Ease: http://tinyurl.com/lazjwoa ...Read more

Recurring 3-8 months itchy bump butt crack/tailbone when wipe to keep dry painful,use hydrocortisone/lotrimin 2-4 week gone but returns what could be?

Hard to say: Your cream contains both a cortisone (which nonspecifically suppresses inflammation even from an infection) and an anti-fungal. Thus it is hard to tell as to which ingredient had worked for you. If this problem keeps on returning, it'd be wise to ask your doctor to check this out for you. ...Read more

I have seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp & ears. I've also been having issues with dry, flaky, peeling, itchy, irritated, sometimes red and burning skin in butt crack.

Seb derm areas: Seborrheic dermatitis can affect the scalp, face, chest, back, underarms, groin and lower abdomen, and the fold between the buttocks. Psoriasis can do the same thing.

Im 6omale ery sexualy active I have a crusty rash on my penus it scabs then falls off i tried azithromnycin no effect then I use i us cream 4 5 days?

See a doctor!!!: I am not sure how you would have gotten Azithromycin but it would not make sense for this complaint. It also depends which cream. In a very sexually active adult, as you describe, a rash on the penis that does not heal warrants a doctors visit. Usually a visual inspection or tests such as viral cultures or the blood test for syphilis can quickly find out what it is and choose the best medicine. ...Read more
