Ali asks:

The last few months I've had a very strange and painful problem. No one I've asked has ever had this problem, so I'm looking to you people here to help me. For the last few months my ass crack has been chapped. The crack itself is very red and quite painful, and looks like the cracking you get on the sides of your mouth if your lips are extremely chapped. I have not changed my wiping habbits -- I use the damp Cottonelle wipes. I've been putting Neosporin with lidocaine on my crack and that makes it feel better but the problem isn't going away. Please help -- I need ass crack relief!





Dear Ali,

For starters, I can assure you of two things: Asscrackitis (the medical term for an irritated or inflamed ass crack), is generally NOT sexually transmitted, nor is it likely to be fatal. I realize that neither of these facts has anything to do with your concerns, but thought I would sound more professional making this sort of pronouncement right off the bat.

First, discard your thong underwear, if applicable. (Alternatively, you can boil them for one hour and then soak them in a gallon of bleach, but I would just throw them out). Thong-wearing is the #1 cause of Asscrackitis. Boiling and bleaching really has nothing helpful to contribute to your problem, but I suggested it only to encourage you to stop wearing them. Fabric wedged up your ass crack can't be helping the problem.

Next, are you using some new type of soap, body wash, detergent, or Brillo pads on your crack? I would recommend switching to some bland, non-irritating cleanser, such as Ivory soap, for a while. Don't overwash your crack, either. Be sure you let it dry well.

Wear plain old cotton underpants for a while. No leather or rubber underwear or pants. Let your crack breathe, as God intended.

Stop with the Neosporin if it isn't helping. Get a mild hydrocortisone (1%) cream at the drugstore, and apply it sparingly to your spanking clean, dry ass crack twice a day.

Don't use those premoistened wipes for a while. They usually have some alcohol in them, which could be either over-drying your crack or irritating it. Alcohol is for drinking, not for wiping.

If you are not improved within two weeks, or if your Asscrackitis is getting worse while you are doing these things, for God's sake go show your ass to a real doctor.

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

i as well have a case of asscrackitis. so iv'e recently moved to the land of israel. iv'e never suffered from this before but about a week ago it hit me. i guess why it started is because of the heat (which i'm not used to because i come from new york) and maybe becase i often wear thongs, but that aspect has never been an issue. i feel a burning/stinging/, painful and itchy sensation at the tip inside of the crack, above the ass hole. and it's also quite red. iv'e been applying cortizone on it every night after my shower, but i don't think that that has been helpful. i dont know what to do, and i need your help poopreporters! i don't think i can do it without you! all your stories have been extremely helpful and entetaining. i'm glad there is a community of asscrackitises out there. thanks.

please respond. i need help

I was just curious. Does anybody know whats up with those red ass monkeys you see sometimes on the Discovery channel. They look like they need to dip their asses in a pail of witch hazel.

I get a paralysing shooting pain in the bung hole sometimes. I can barely stand, walk or talk for 1 -2 minutes.
And don't even get me stated about "laying cable"! The last time I dropped the kids at the pool, my wife could hear me whimper from the next room.
I have been to the Dr, it seems I have a yeast infection, AND AN ANAL FISSEUR, a tearing of the arse.
I was previously using creams to try to sooth what I thought was chapped ass, which was actually a yeast infection. But these creams kept my crack moist and encouraged the fungal growth, leading to weakened skin and the fisseur.

This has been ongoing for over 2 years.
It helps to know I am not alone.

Menthol and camphor ARE considered to have anti-biotic properties, so this might be why it works.

Thank you for that tip.

I didn't expect to find an entire page dedicated to my problem when I typed "chapped butt crack" into google search! Goldmine! I have a raging case of asscrackitis. I think it is the result of several factors, but mainly due to a long distance drive and a lot of butt-time over the holiday. I've been using tea tree oil on it for it's antiseptic and healing properties. Also, triple-bac ointment takes the edge off and soothes inflamed, red tissue.

A word of warning to all of you fellow asscrackitis sufferers. Do not scratch, under any circumstances. Of course, I knew I shouldn't scratch, but I was unable to control the urge in my sleep and woke up with a burning sensation and knew I must have scratched it. Anyway, long story short, in a few days time, my itchy crack turned into something much worse - a cellulitis infection of the skin and surrounding tissue around my tailbone which caused the skin to actually break apart. My crack actually cracked. Not to mention the pain and soreness from the infection and swelling around the tailbone that made it painful to sit, lie down, stand, everything basically. I had never in my life heard of anyone getting an infection in their buttcrack but leave it to me to accomplish this. This has been a very embarassing situation to say the least and I am still finishing up a round of some very strong antibiotics. Just remember - Don't scratch! Wear mittens to bed if you have to.

thank god for this site. my ass has been burning/itching like a motherfucker for the last year+. i'm in IT and basically sit on my ass all day. i'm not a fatty at all (6'0 165 soaking wet), but i'm pretty sure it comes from sitting. some days are better then others, and most the pain comes from sudden movements or wiping my ass after a big shit. i do my very best never to itch it but i know i do subconciously while i sleep. i think im going to try shaving my ass and doing the sleeping naked thing. its worth a shot. nothing in the world is worse then being in public and having a asscrackitis flare up and not being able to do anything about it. i must have done something really fucked up to deserve this. it's good to know theres more people praying for death atleast a few times a day.

I started with itching in the "butthole" and then it migrated up the entire crack (over 10 years now). I've seen anal-rectal surgeons (formerly called proctologists), a gastroenterologist, a regular MD, they all just say some people are like that, just keep it clean and dry. Problem is the more you try to clean, the more you irritate it (obviously I know not to wipe dry). I did get a pamphlet, among the things they recommend are: do not use soap on the area, use Prax lotion (available on the internet by Googling it) to clean and sooth, avoid things like coffee, cola, nuts, chocolate, when possible wear a thin cotton strip taken off a roll of absorbant cotton in the "crack" area ( I know that sounds ridiculous but it does help). Also Analpram HC is a prescription product.

I just started to have this problem within the last week. I was starting to freak out and think I had something or that I was dying. It was crazy to see the split in my butt crack. It freaked me out like you wouldn't believe and of course I got online put in my symptoms which are exactly those listed. Amazing what pain a chaffed, split butt crack can cause. However, after reading, I have realized that the moist wipes are not my friend. I started using them and I did recently change my soap which is a moisturizing soap. I should have just stuck with my Dial. I am going back to dial and no more wipes for me. But, I need to cure this and fast, I want to sit comfortably!
Please post what works, seems like everyone uses something a little different. Thank God however, I wasn't the only one feeling this pain.

Wow! I just got crackitis, never had it before, got it last week. I've been putting my grandson's desitin on it (he's 1) and that works great! I mean it didn't fix it immediately, it's been 4 days now, but the pain is tolerable and feels like the crack is healing nicely.. I have looked using a magnifying mirror and I can't see anything abnormal, just a red and sore looking ass crack...

Thank you one and all for making me feel normal.

I sit a lot on the job, and have been doing 50 minutes of cardio at the gym as part of my workout, so it must be a combination of the 2.. I'd suggest a shower before bed and before work and go get some desitin and use it on the asscrackitis...

Hey guys... I'm here to enlighten you all as to THE BEST cure for asscrackitis. The thing is, it's a common misconception that this horrible affliction is caused by infection/damp/over-wiping etc. However, the real reason (and also the reason many doctor's visits prove fruitless) is that asscrackitis is PSYCHOLOGICAL. Yes, believe it or not, your ass and your emotional well-being are very closely linked. Chances are, those suffering the worst are those with the biggest amount of stress in their lives and those who do not take the time to really pay attention to the needs of their asses. Try and be at one with your ass. Picture you and your ass taking scenic walks in the country, enjoying an icecream on a hot day and picking flowers together in a quiet meadow. Listen to your ass. Appreciate it. Spend time with it doing its favourite hobbies. Tell it that you value it and the many functions it provides and in time, you and your ass will enjoy an unbreakable bond and it will stop tormenting you with asscrackitis to get your attention, which can be a real pain in the ass.

Many of you may be afflicted with lactose intolerance, as I am. Shortly after eating food with milk or whey in it, I experience slight liquid diarrhaea. I can't feel it happen, but it wicks right up the crack and starts to burn the skin. If this is your situation, get some lactose pills over-the-counter at the pharmacy. Lots of people have this, especially as they get older. No need to be embarassed, so to speak.

Hi all

As I have already mentioned in another topic, my ass gets itchy more so when walking then it starts to burn and itch unbearably whilst I walk some more.

Someone said that it was athletes asscrack so is this the same as Asscrackitis??

It seems to get worse with moisture down there.

Also, how do you know when its a fungal infection?

My final question is, whatever it is i've got, is there a way to get rid of it permanently? I've noticed that some people in this thread have recurring symptoms that reappear after sweating etc.

For more reference on my problem here is my post in another topic:

Hi all
Recently I have been experiencing an itchy anus. It may be down to excessive wiping. When I am not moving a lot it is okay, but when i start walking it starts to itch and i can't walk properly. It gets so bad when walking that it goes from itching to soreness and then a really strong itching sensation. Also, after walking when i feel the skin it feels really sore and little moist from the soreness. I just want to be able to walk/run freely.
Anyway I have decided to increase the fibre in my diet as there was very little in my diet. Having increased the fibre, my wiping has decreased. I went to the doctor and got some cream (can't remember the name) and also have to send a sample to find out what the problem could be.
I would like some feedback of what people think this could be and what may help solve the problem.
I will post back to inform you of anything that has helped me with this problem.
Thanks

I too suffer from asscrackitis. I have the split above the hole, and it itches from the top of my crack to my taint (if it t'aint your butthole and it t'aint your balls, your taint is in the middle) it hurts to wipe, and when I itch it my fingers smell like ass. And thats even right after a shower. I gets worse when I scratch, but who has the power to resist the call of asscrackitis? She's an informidable opponent, but her call is akin to the Sirens "the seductresses".

The disease is known as "ringworm" or better known as jock itch. Yes, it does occur between the butt cheeks. If it's not too bad it can go away on its own as mine has in the past but do yourself a favor and get a tube of Lamisil. Mine is just about gone after 5 days of treatment. I've been suffering for the last 6 months until I finally figured out what it is. Dry well after showering and if you can, use your blow dryer on a low setting to really dry the area out. Then apply the Lamisil. I noticed a difference after ONE application. Good Luck.

I am enlightened in your site. I thought I was the only one that had a split asscrack. Wow, I can't believe I'm not the only one in the world. I feel better knowing this, my ass feels better as well. I have tried different treatments for this asscracktitis,,,different soap, jock itch treatment, baby buttcrack meds, sleeping butt naked etc...I've never had the guts to try vicks. If I get the nerve and the person to chase me down with a fan I will do it. I have thought about going to the dr. but haven't had the nerve on that either. Wish me luck, and healing! Good luck to everyone else out there with the same inflictions.

I too have been suffering from this chapped crack syndrome. The problem is now that it seems to be spreading...I am a female and not to be too horribly graphic...down towards the opening of my vagina I'm all red and itchy too. It's super frusterating. I'm wondering if I now have a yeast infection? The yeast cream isn't helping, nor helping my crack...so I'm not sure. I tried the neosporin on my crack the other day, it made it feel better for awhile, but it's back again. I try to dry it out with toilet paper, but I feel like I get dingleberries stuck in the sore...which just makes it feel worse! I'm a little nervous to put powder on my anus as well as anti fungal creams...what if it goes down south to the female regions?

It does sound like you might have a fungal infection. You might need some Diflucan by mouth. Go to your gyno if you don't have a primary care physician. you would probably benefit from a prescription antifungal agent. The best thing to do really is take your ass to the doctor.

I have been suffering from this skin breaking for 20 years. I thought at first I had caught herpes. I never told my doctor because I was so embarrased. I noticed that it is related to stress. When I am one week from my period my skin breaks out for 3 to 4 days.
I love this site. I have been laughing out loud with tears coming down my face. You guys have saved me from believing the worst.
I use vaseline just to stop the pain, desitin sometimes work. I keep the area there dry and clean it,that works sometimes. I also believe it is caused by sitting and sweating in that area. God Bless. We will all be okay.

ok, i thought i was the only one who ever felt the actual ripping apart of her ass crack skin and screamed in pain. As my husband has said, "i believe you, I have seen your ass crack before my very eyes" and he didn't mean it in his usual fun, dirty way. Now I know, many an ass cracks out there.
Usually starts, and stays, for a short time at the top where my crack starts. Just enough to hide it away and store any moisture, or whatever the hell causes it. And always at the start of or during winter.
Finally , I had it so bad that I had multiple cracks running along my ENTIRE ass crack. I didn't know if I should get a palmist to try and read my new "line" or go to the doctor. Something was definitely angry at me or trying to get me a message. I picked the doctor. He told me infection and gave me antibiotics. That's because he is dumb. I went to a girl nurse practitioner. YEAST INFECTION! gross! I have had trouble with candida in the past and it had gotten through my system so badly that my normal girly parts had no symptoms, it was just living wildly on top of my skin, particularly my asscrack skin in winter.
Sorry to be so detailed, but it took lots of other symptoms and years for me to find out I have a yeast sensitivity. It took 2 diflucan a day for 2 weeks, and 1 a week for 3 months to clear all my symptoms (asscrackitis cleared in about 2 weeks).
If this happens regularly to you, have your doctor do a skin swab for ALL types of yeast, even the rarer forms. And air it out, change your diet, cotton or nudity is best.
Wow, that was a lot of info about my nether parts. sorry. but hope it helps someone

Mine started with a roid, I think the roid cream gave the itch a start. After reading this site's suggestions, I wash it with alcohol and later, treat with lamisil, 2 times a day. After 4 days my ass feels better than it has in 6 months! No more burning or leakage! I had cracks that radiated from my hole, these are going away. Walking was causing it to bleed and jogging was impossible, not now. Thanks from the bottom of my crack.

I was desperate and have found a solution, I believe. Burt's Bees!!!! the peppermint lip balm stick, either the white one or the clear! OMG, the relief is almost immediate. I won't lie, there is bit of a bite to it but the cooling is magnificent and provides relief the same day. please try this and tell me how it works for you.

I have been having these bouts for about 5 years now. I will get a sore at the top of my crack and it would sometimes take weeks to heal. I thought it was from too much moisture. I finally realized it was a yeast infection. The monistat wouldn't work but the triconazoledoes. I tried anti-fungal, anti-biotic creams. Powders, diaper rach ointments. But the trico works. I went to the docs for med refills before the end of the year and I had one starting. He told me it was a cold sore (you know like you get on your mouth? No, doc. I have never had one. I think it's a yeast infection. No it's not. I'll perscribe this very expensive cream and it should be gone in a couple of days. It will go away in 10 days anyway.) BS I used the cream. Didn't work. Over 2 weeks and it's still not gone. Going back to the triconazile. After researching this, I haven't associated this with herpes. I have associated it with using wet wipes. Wet wipes are great for babies asses, which BTW is when I decided to start using them on my ass. About 5 years ago when I aquired my 2 grandkids my little one was still in diapers. I figured if they were good enough for him they should do good on keeping my ass cleaner too. Well, The moisture has caused me to get frequent yeast infections. Thanks to that %#@$%^&* doctor I have to try and convince my husband of 20 years (who works out of town) that I don't have herpes. Who the hell wants it or has time in your 50's raising kids all over again? It's all about WET WIPES! They are not to be used sliding up the crack of your ass.

Its so hard to find ANY health professional who will comment or advise on this malady. Dayum my a$$ ruins my good time and I have asked the Q&A of even the least uptight Physician only to have them reel with transparent disgust at the prospect of adressing it as a real or potentialy serious problem!
Bas^ardz!! Anyways I am here to tell you that as suggested above; taking my a@@ for a walk or to the beach and talking candidly with it about life and stress has enabled me to enjoy some relief at least.
It seems to be very sensitive and wants consideration thats all. I mean I am going to treat it with TLC first and whatever it needs to stay cool BUT as long as I ignore it.. it tells me it will scream murderously at me with the only voice it owns if I again ever take it for granted. The ass is alive people treat it with a little love; as with anything it goes a long way.

I give up. I've tried every cream suggested by surgeon and natural organic product too. Surgeon has no idea what is wrong. Cracking skin under tail bone. He was looking to see if I had developed a channel fistula from an abscess I had back in September. He stabbed me with some kind of shrimp fork probe. Then put silver nitrate on it. Not sure what I did in my past life but, whatever it was I'm really sorry. Does anyone have any advice. If I could give it away to my worst enemy, I would!

If you cannot shower more than once a day, use a baby wipe to clean. Then, to get rid of the moisture caused by the baby wipe, use compressed air from a can purchased at the office supply store. Please understand that the air will be very cold so there is the danger of going from crackaditis to frostbite ass.

My stink hole has been on fire for over 2 weeks and getting worse. So I've been using wet ones for about 3 months and I think... I think that's it but now my ass is so god damn angry it doesn't like anything but those god damn jesus soft wipes. I'm not sure what to do but one of us has to win... my ass or the wipes so far ass:0 wipes:1. My stink hole, lava hole, brown eye is red. DAMN YOU BROWN EYE! I can tell you what doesn't work... vaseline, it's helps but it's still there it kinda puts things at bay. Cortizone itches like hell but seems to be oaky but I think it's pisses it off worse. Hand cream no good. Hemmroid cream real bad. And that's about it. :9 I'm going to fight with my stink hole.

I am a chronic sufferer of this affliction. I'm pretty sure it's due to my diet of fast food, spicy food, alcohol, soda, etc.. I'm 29, and I think I'm beginning to realize that: The older I get, the more the bad things I like to do are going to hurt me. :(

I got this out of the blue, I'm guessing from wearing pants that were too tight and not breathable :( Putting cream on my butt crack helped initially, but I think in the long run it makes the problem worse or prolongs the healing. What works for me is two showers a day to keep things clean and dry and then sleeping in the nude from the waist down for the past few days has helped, and I stopped using the cream. My ass crack is looking less inflamed since stopping the cream so it must be the right thing. I hope it goes away altogether soon. Every now and it gets incredibly itchy and scratching makes matters worse.

Seems like we have two types of asscrackitis: type 1 asscrackitis is the itchy butt crack type, and is probably bacterial/fungal due to swamp ass or sweaty ass crack. Type 2 asscrackitis is the burning/tearing kind, complete with one or two inch tear. This is probably related to pilonidal sinus disease, which is a nasty, nasty kind of asscrackitis that I very much hope I do not have!

Going to the doc tomorrow am, will report back to see if my asscrackitis typing is effective. Oh, my asscrackitis (probably type 1, since it's very, very itchy) started late last week and was (is) hella itchy! Since I sweat like a mofo, *particularly* in my ass crack, AND sit for 12 hours on a pleather office chair AND work out twice a week (meaning yet more sweaty ass crack) AND swim twice a week, it's probably bacterial/fungal, and not some draining ass crack sinus thingee.

As I said, going to the doc tomorrow, will report back with the results.

Well... went to the doc this am. Diagnosis: pilonidal sinus with abcess. Prognosis? SURGERY! No shit. The following excerpts, from an article entitled "Pilonidal Sinus" by one John Bascom, M.D., Ph.D. (who apparently wrote the book on this type of asscrackitis), does a great job of explaining this, and the preferred course of care. You can find the article if you Google "pilonidal sinus" and "bascom." Seriously, I very strongly encourage those of you with itchy (and painful) butt cracks to read the article.

All kidding aside, this issue affects a surprising number of men AND WOMEN, and is not limited only to fat men with hairy, sweaty butts. Seriously, folks, don't fuck around with this! Get thee to a doctor RIGHT FUCKING NOW.

Here are the excerpts:

ETIOLOGY:

Pilonidal disease is acquired when gravity pulls the buttocks and cleft from the bone so strongly that skin stretches. Pulling forces that focus between the bottom of the cleft and the angle of the sacrum stretch the skin. Skin stretches at the bottom of a follicle, where it is thinnest. The stretched follicle breaks down, and an acute or chronic abscess results. Hair is a secondary invader.

* * *

CLINICAL PRESENTATION

Patients with pilonidal disease may ask for advice about tiny asymptomatic pits or pores at the bottom of the cleft. Tenderness while doing sit-ups is a common complaint. A tender or nontender nodule may be palpable. One-fifth of such patients seek care for the severe pain and tenderness of an acute abscess. Four- fifths of patients with pilonidal disease present with moisture and drainage and
occasional bleeding. They report few or no episodes of pain or tenderness and have no history of a previous acute abscess. Examination shows one to fifteen tiny openings in the midline or a larger granulation-filled slit opening into a cavity. A secondary opening may lie a few centimeters above. Discharge is minimal to copious.

Hairs singly or in tufts often lie in the openings and may be surprisingly long when withdrawn. Unhealed wounds show thin skin that bridges over a cavity or a scarred trench filled with loose granulations.

* * *

RECOMMENDED TREATMENTS

Acute Abscess

For patient comfort, drain the acute abscess semiurgently.
Do not wait for redness and edema before incising.

* * *

A pointed blade opens a drainage incision parallel to the
midline and 2 cm to one side of it. The knife stops when
pus first appears. In lieu of packs, which cause pain,
excise from one side of the incision a 5-mm circle of skin
to prevent premature closure. Antibiotics are unnecessary.
Delay further treatment for I week, and then treat as a
chronic abscess. This delay clears the edema that hides
midline holes that must be seen and removed in order to
cure the disease.

Relief is immediate. Only rarely does an acute abscess
reseal before curative treatment. The advantages of
prompt drainage are simplicity, certainty, and quick relief.
The only disadvantage is the need for a second procedure.

Chronic Abscess

Four-fifths of patients with pilonidal disease come to
the surgeon with a chronic abscess and NO HISTORY OF A PRIOR RECOGNIZABLE ACUTE STAGE.
Chronic abscess patients selected for the treatment outlined below have one to ten
holes in the midline occasionally with a larger hole to one side. They are free of acute inflammation. I do not treat
asymptomatic patients who have holes that are dry and have never been painful. However, patients who have recently had pain are operated on because a chronic abscess
usually lies below the midline. If a short slit is found in the midline, treat it like any other chronic abscess. If the slit is long, treat it like an unhealed incision.

I feel your pain. Buy some Gynelotrimin 3 day cream from drugstore.com. This would be a good solution for the guys who don't want to be seen purchasing female yeast meds at their local grocery store in front of the teenage checkout girl. Smear it all over the chapped area after every bathroom break. My son had a yeast infection in the diaper area as a baby. I didn't know it was yeast, because it wasn't gooky like a vaginal yeast infection. It was red, chapped, itchy and painful. I kept trying different creams, but female yeast meds finally worked. Please try this. I wish you success, I know how terrible it is to walk around with this. Your skin will be back to normal soon. Please let me know if this works for you.

WTF! Symptoms started out of nowhere. Seriously, I was walking home from work and BANG!...this insane itch right in the anus that could not be soothed just popped out of my ass. I mean a deep deep itch. Luckily it was dark(dont think anyone saw), because I involuntarily started digging and clawing at the itch. Finally got it scratched and calmed down, but over the next few days it re-appeared sporatically but not as intense as when it first happened. After about a week the itching ceased, but was replaced with a chapped, cracked, burning sensation...when I wipe there was little bright specks of blood from the cracking. I thought I had hemroids, so I just applied over the counter creams. I did also try anti fungal creams and yeast infection creams and nothing has worked, Later on, the symptoms morphed again. Now the chapping, burning, cracking is accompanied by what others on here have referred to as 'swamp ass'- light discharge of greasy foul smelling general wetness down there. Like I am sweating too much....except it defintely is more prevelent when the other symptoms flare up. It now goes in cycles, it will go in the background for 4-7 days (I can still feel it in the background...but it goes away enough that I feel normal)....then flares up to uncomfortable levels of irritation, burning and swampyness for a day or two and then goes back in the background. I am even noticing that it flares up when I get sick and my immune system is stressed.

I have asked two doctors about this and they have both spread my cheeks and looked in my ass and they both said "it is normal" and "quite common". And told me to put Desitin on it!!! I cant believe this? This doesn't feel normal. And reading through all these posts, It does sound like many suffer from this. We should all kick in 100 bucks and have a medical researcher come up with a cure. But maybe like the common cold, there is no cure? This totally sucks ass!!!!!!! Anyone out there have any latest info on this. When I go see my doctor again in a few weeks, I will bring it up again out of desperation.

Well hello from the good ole U of K! I wasn't aware that my long suffering symptom (5+ years) had a name outside our family home - my kids absolutely love to call me Eczema Bum ( bet they can't spell it!). Asscrackitis eh? very tongue in cheek! What a lovely day it is tho to know I am not alone + my kids will be chuffed with the new name for it too + I'm sure my wife will get a little relief in knowing I'm not the only freak with it (I don't think we are freaks, well maybe some of you). Not sure what mine is but located at the very top of ass crack going due south about 2" & 1" east & west (estimated not gps calculated or wife+ruler notified). Symptoms are inflamed at night caused by sweat normally after excessive alcohol intake, very itchy, a bit sore but mainly a little baboon like - maybe I'm just trying to arouse my wife with this show of virility? I have tried a hydrocortizone cream that was out of date for 2 years (used sparingly & sporadically) but I am unable to see any course of medicine through especially when for a day or 2 all seems well - or maybe, secretly I like my affliction? I did think it could be fungal but the thought of this isn't appealing so I'm going to ignore that diagnosis in favour of the lame 'dry skin'. I have been procrastinating on a trip to the chemist to buy some Eczema Bum dry skin eradicator for a few months but with the warm weather exacerbating my condition I have promised my arse crack I will do something soon. And so I have! Are these few words the beginning of the road to recovery? Or have I in finding fellow sufferers become more confident, proud and attatched to my condition? I'll certainly keep you posted on the progress of my Eczema Bum and face the future (& chemist) with more confidence knowing I have something special. Work now calls that will no doubt lead to the excessive intake of alcohol. Toodaloo!

Also suffering with this condition. Am ready to try Lotramine. Found the following on NETDOCTOR:
Itchy bottom
Question
The top layer of skin between my buttocks often gets spotty, it then breaks and becomes itchy and the skin deep in the cleavage above the anus cracks and becomes painful.
Treatment with a healing cream like Sudocrem seems to help, but as soon as I stop using this, the condition returns. I had Canesten anti fungal cream for an infection a few years ago, but the current problem does not want to go away and does not bear the symptoms of the previous fungal infection.
My personal hygiene regime includes a twice-daily cold hose-out (no soap used) with the shower head to help prevent infections but this has not really helped. I seem to be unable to control this problem, can you advise a solution?
Answer
This is a common and characteristically recurring problem.
Anywhere on the body where skin touches skin, such as the natal cleft you describe, the warmth and moistness makes it a perfect place for the incubation of yeasts and fungi. All of us are covered with a variety of bacteria, yeasts and fungi. What is remarkable is not that we occasionally develop infections, but that our immune systems keep us free of them for most of the time.
The response to Canesten cream would suggest that this is either a yeast or fungal infection causing an associated eczema/dermatitis. Most commonly these are yeast infections and creams such as Canesten or Nystan help to reduce the infection. If there is irritation it also helps to add Hydrocortisone cream to reduce this. There are several products that combine the two ingredients.
Once you have cleared the problem, keeping the area thoroughly clean and dry will help keep it at bay. Constant use of creams is not to be recommended as it will ultimately reduce the body's natural protection.
If you find your infection very resistant to treatment, do ask your GP or Practice Nurse to check your urine for sugar to exclude diabetes. It can sometimes make itself known through an increase in such infections.
Yours sincerely

Hope it helps someone. The neosporen hasn't been much help and A&D is soothing but temporary. Off to stop at the pharmacy.

Lanolin - Somebody mentioned it earlier. That's what cured it for me. It's on the baby aisle, for nursing mothers' sore nipples. Probably took a week or so of applying it twice a day. But I no longer have the problem.

I've been having this problem for a few years now, but only at night. After several different doctors and remedies that seemed to work temporarily but then wear off, I learned that this may be caused by a weird form of sciatica because of a long-ago injury to my tailbone. For a time, heat helped, but it is difficult to keep against the area because I keep turning on my side! This problem is a torment...

Have you tried baby powder? Mexsana makes some nice stuff, and it might keep you dry and medicated at the same time.

Wow, great site. I get this usually after a night of hard drinking and bar food, which usually leads to multiple messy poops the next day. when I get it it is brutal - walking is terrible, sitting as well, and wiping, wow. What also hurts like hell is showering with it - yowsers. Mine has always gone away after a night of sleeping naked - which I'm doing now. Also love the poster who said they helped tons of people by suggesting some cure - I can't imagine actually talking to people about this!
