For about three weeks I have had an itch around the inside area of my buttocks. I thought it would go away but I still have it. It itches mostly around night time. I was wondering what kind of doctor I should see for this.

Thanks for your question. I would say that this might be due to fungal infection most likely as one of a common cause of itching there. I will advise you to apply lamisil or canesten antifungal cream there for four days. These are available OTC. Keep the area dry & clean. I will advise you to see dermatologist specialist in these issues for complete evaluation and treatment. Best wishes.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
