Dermatitis...: It could be a dermatitis which is an irritation of the skin after it comes in contact with anything that causes an reaction on it. You may use hydrocortisone over the counter but if it is painful or gets worse you should see your doctor for exam and treatment as needed.

Abscess cyst: What you are describing is most likely a congenital condition known as a pilonidal cyst. It is not a dangerous condition, but should be fullly evaluated by a physician and then treated appropriately. It may require excision or just incision and drainage and obliteration of the cyst walls. You should be evaluated by a physician to determine the exact diagnosis.

Gluteal bumps: May be eczema that may be getting infected because of itching or may be fungal infection. You may consider bacitracin in AM with an anti-fungal like over the counter clotrimazole in the PM for 7 days and see if it works, if not try over the counter hydrocortisone for eczema. Discuss with doctor/urgent care

Rash: Couple things come to mind based on location: warm, dark, moist area is perfect spot for fungus to take up residence. Other possibility is shingles (reactivation of the chickenpox virus). See your fp to examine rash to determine what it is & to provide appropriate treatment.

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. In mild cases of both treatments are similar. Care must be taken not to use steroid creams in body folds for prolonged periods of time as they can thin the skin and cause other damage.

Ringworm?: Sounds like you have a case of tinea corporis, commonly called ringworm, though is a fungal infection. The warmth and moistness of that part of the body with the added irritation is the likely cause. You can use a variety of over the counter creams including Clotrimazole and terbenifine with good results.

See answer: Unable to give specific advice without seeng your rash. Generally, an itchy rash between the buttocks is often due to Candidiasis, a yeast infection. This is more common in infants. It can be treated with Lamisil (Terbinafine)cream. For specific advice see your physician or upload a photo for an online consultation at Health Tap.

I have had a cut on my butt crack for about a year now. Sometimes it is itchy and there is slight bleeding on my toilet paper. How should I treat this?

1 year: You may have a rectal fissure or chronic inflammation of that area. Usually 1-2.5% hydrocortisone cream is helpful; however 1 year is too long to ignore. Please get examined and treated asap.

Proctitis: A fungal infection in the area is not acquired by oral contact. Might want to use any over the counter antifungal, mostly because they help dry the skin. If this persists, you might want to have an exam to make sure you do not have a Polyp
