Heat rash on buttocks

Hi doc, my boyfriend sweats a lot in the day (profusely!) and even though he wears cotton boxers, he develops a VERY red ichy rash on his buttocks cheeks and it progresses to the anal area. This becomes painful and inflamed from scratching in the night. Any ideas for over the counter treatment? thanks a mill.

Gessica, it sounds like a superficial fungal infection and he can try applying an antifungal ointment like Normospor® twice a day for a week. If it doesn’t clear up the best would be for him to see his doctor. Good luck.
