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.

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.
