Re: Brown rash inside buttocks cheeks
I don't believe you need a doctor for this.
It may be what you have is called heat rash. This occurs from sweat moisture that builds up under the skin. It is common in humid air, and esp with those who sweat a lot, or wear synthetic fabric underwear or diapers. It's common to babies, but only because of the excess moisture in diapers. It can occur on anyone, and anywhere on the skin. I am thinking the pimple was nothing more than a pimple since it healed. The discoloration, I think, is likely is just your skin trying to heal, and probably will go away in time. Some people's rashes are a dark pink color. It's likely just your own pigmentation.
I suggest washing off the stuff you used with soap and water, keep the area clean and dry, and use a light application of A & D ointment. Normally I would not recommend using an ointment, but this one I find to be very helpful. It can usually be found at the baby diaper rash section of stores by diapers, but all it is, is a vitamin A and vitamin D ointment. Both vitamins help the skin repeair itself and heal. The ointment lubricant also gives immediate skin protection and pain relief. Use it until the condition is gone. It has no side effects.
A and D ointment soothes and quickly heals up even herpes sore lesions, that is how much the skin needs those viitamins. It doesn't cure herpes but it definitely helps the lesions heal fast.
Probably vitamin A and vitamin D ointment can be bought at a health food store, too, at a higher cost, but there is no difference. I get it from the diaper section at grocery stores. I squeeze a bit on a tissue in order to not contaminate the tube, and a tube lasts a very long time.
I hope you get relief. Let me know if you try the A & D ointment. That is the name of it. I hope you can get it in Australia!
