Customer Question

Well to be honest its a little embarrassing But I will try.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I have an issue with chaffing on my buttocks and I'm not sure why or how to prevent it . have mentioned this to my family Dr. and he only suggested cortisone. What do you suggest?
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: none Im not really allergic to foods or have major allergies. I did the test on my back for 48 allergies. I am only allergic to a tree in the spring and one in the fall. I know if I consume too much citrus such as mangos or oranges this may cause the chaffing. But other than this nothing.

Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 5 months ago.

chaffing can be due to excessive moisture and skin rubbing on skin

have you tried to use baby powder on the area to decrease moisture? that could help a lot.
