Spots around anus

This is Dr. David

can you upload a clear jpg photo of these spots around your anus so I can better help you?

Sure here is an image it's pretty painful!

it looks like a bad fungal or bacterial skin infection.

in the summer you can have excessive moisture and sweating in that area and fungus like to grow in dark, warm, moist environments.

you need to get some over the counter antifungal sprays and powders at your drug store

like tinactin sprays or powders, lamasil sprays or powders, Nystatin powders and use them 2-4 times a day on the area

and keep the area dry and see if that helps.

it should get better in 4-6 weeks

if it doesn't get better, you need to see your GP doctor.

let me know if you have other questions.

if done for now, please leave positive rating of 3-5 stars so I can get credit for helping you today
