Intertrigo: The peri-rectal area is a common area for a rash known as intertrigo. This starts off as an irritation and then secondarily becomes colonized by yeast usually. Avoid using wet wipes to wipe the area. It can be treated with a combination of topical steroid and topical anti-yeast creams and often takes a few weeks to resolve. Zeasorb powder is useful to prevent recurrence. See a dermatologist.

Must call the doctor: A person with left shoulder or left arm severe pain symptoms has to go to her doctor or the E.R. to be checked for a heart attack. That means not waiting at home to see what happens next. It could turn out to be a lung problem, a bone or muscle problem, a nerve problem, or an acid reflux problem, but the heart attack kills people. Better safe than sorry. Calling 911 for an ambulance the quick way.

I am getting pain in left arm an left rib cage can't stand the pain what could be happening to me?

Cardiac vs. Visceral: The most serious thing could be cardiac problems causing pain radiating to the arm and chest. Also, ulcers and pancreatic problems can irritate the diaphragm and cause similar symptoms. It could be something simple like anintercostal spasm, but this does not usually go to the arm. Chestwall abnormalities are also a possibility. See your family doctor for evaluation and testing.
