I have had a very itchy rash on the top of my buttcrack. I tried vaseline and lotrimin (clotrimazole) with no help. Any suggestions?
Find the cause: You should find out what it is. If it's a fungal rash, the vaseline is completely undoing any benefit you might be getting from the lotrimin (clotrimazole). That's also a common place for herpes, which can be itchy, and neither vaseline nor lotrimin (clotrimazole) would treat herpes. Since it's not possible to post pictures on healthtap, I'd suggest you see a doctor during an outbreak of the rash. ...Read more

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also, bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.
