    So ive got this scabby mark on my bum, its like sort of a rash/graze thing its red and the size of a 50p and itchy, now i have a few little ones next to it, i keep trying different creams but its not going, ive had it about a month now, ive dont have it anywere else so it cant be a reaction to my soaps and powders, anyone have any idea what it is???

    i'm not too sure hun but sounds painful so hugs.
    however, my boyfriend does have something similar, he has tons and tons over his bum, some dent inwards as well, he's also got them under his arm pits and on his back, he's needing to see a doctor soon as creams and lotions don't work and he's trying numerous different soaps incase he's having an allergic reaction but theyre still not going away. i would see your gp hun, maybe they could give you some proper treatment. being uncomfy and sore is the last thing you need xxx

    sounds a bit like eczema or maybe psoriasis - ask your doc to have a look at it for ya!

    Could it be Impetigo? Just a suggestion, i'd go see the doc as it can be very contagious.

    If it is psoriasis they wont do much iv got eczema on my body and psoriasis on my head and iv been seeing a dermatoligist recently and they say they cant do much while im pregnant they might just give you some steriod cream for it which might help .. but aswell it took quite awhile for me to get refered to see a dermotologist and cause its christmas and that its a bad time lol! but if you make an appointment with doctor to see if you can get refered then you may be able to get in before you have baby :)! x

    My bum is also very dry and sore at times (the cheeks) Ive tried using E45 but like you its not really doing anything. I dont think the cold weather is helping any either as I normally get dry skin in the cold.
    Just have to try and keep on top of it.
