Unhappy butt crack itch and redness

I've had problems with redness around my butt area for a long time and have tried using soothing lotions, cortisone desitine and perscription fungal medication but nothing has been much help. Recently I got psoriasis on my leg and after doing a lot of research I found out you can get psoriasis on your butt and genital area too. So I started using Psoriasin Gel on my back side (about one week to date) and it has helped the itching and redness but it is still not 100% gone. Has anyone tried using the Psoriasin Gel for butt crack itching and redness? Or any other creams or perscriptions that actually takes it away? I'm desperate.

Re: butt crack itch and redness

allot of people have luck with tanning beds. Be careful not to burn. You don't have to expose your whole body to the rays.
The internet has many sites that can be useful.
I know that stress makes a huge difference.

Are you sure it's psoriasis? Many brands of toilet tissue contain perfumes and other chemical which can irritate skin.

Re: butt crack itch and redness

I had something similar when I was younger, I now believe it was shingles. The butt crack is at the terminus of the spine and little known to me at my tender age but I had a lot of emotional stress and shingles can be the result, usually occurring along the path of long nerves. I was not treated for shingles but I remember calamine lotion giving some relief.

Cheers, Tanya

Re: butt crack itch and redness

I've had redness for over six months and been to two different doctors. I'm seeing my family doctor every two weeks now. I've been given antibacterial, antifungal and yeast RX's and it is only getting worse. With a strong family history of pilonidal cyst, the colorectal specialist supposedly ruled that out. I've tried tea tree oil, alcohol, peroxide, different powders, bag balm, soaps, wipes, etc. for long enough stretches and nothing helps. I'm willing to try anything.
