Sometimes I have uncomfortable itching between my butt cheeks. I have seen a dermatologist about this. He told me it is common among men and nothing to worry about. It's still uncomfortable and gross and I'd rather avoid it if possible. Tucks medicated pads seem to reduce the problem, but it usually comes back. What else can I do?
I think part of the problem is that the area is just hard to keep clean. Part of this problem is the hair there. Stuff sticks to it and it's impossible to get rid of it without showering or using a wet wipe. I've thought about shaving it but I have a few questions. How do I do this? Electric? Safety razor? It seems like the process would be awkward. Will it look weird if I only shave in the crack and not anywhere else on my hairy body? Will it be really uncomfortable if I don't keep up the shaving so regularly and the hair starts to grow back out?
While the pads are medicated, one of their benefits is that they help get the area really clean. The baby wipes I tried weren't as effective. Is there something that works better, or perhaps a brand of baby wipes that works well?
Also, can you suggest a kind of toilet paper? The less-soft toilet paper irritates the problem, but the really soft stuff tends to shred when I am using it, making a big mess, and sometimes sticking to the hair.
