Hello, Marizha. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
First of all, we need to ask a few things about your brother's complaints. How old are your siblings? Since when does the complaint take place? Is there a skin rash such as redness or appearance of brunts or peeling skin?
Complaints of itching to cause injury due to scratching around the buttocks can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Tinea cruris (skin disease due to fungal infections of dermatophytes in the area of the groin, around the genitals and buttocks, complaints in the form of skin rashes with firm borders, the edges are more active than the middle of the rash, itchy) Candidiasis intertriginosa (skin disease due to fungal infections Candida in the folds of the skin, including the groin, armpits, skin folds under the breast) Scabies (skin disease due to parasitic infection Sarcoptes scabiei, complaints in the form of skin rashes that generally occur in the area between the fingers, buttocks, around the genitals, folds underarms, accompanied by itching that is mainly felt at night, occurs in a group of people who live together, for example in a dormitory or as a family) Irritant contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with irritative materials [detergent, soap, chemicals, etc.], not related to the process immune formation, symptoms can occur on first exposure with irritative substances) Contact dermatitis allergies (inflammation of the skin due to contracting against allergenic ingredients [rubber, metals, plant pollen], related to the process of formation of the body's immune, symptoms usually occur after experiencing repeated exposure to allergenic ingredients)
Risk factors for itching around the buttocks area include poor self-cleaning (example: rarely changing underwear), a warm and humid environment, and the use of tight clothing and less absorbing sweat.
You are advised to consult directly with a doctor or dermatologist. The doctor will perform anamnesis, physical examination, and support (if there are indications, for example in the form of skin scrapings for microscopy). Later the doctor will probably give a cream / ointment to be smeared, as well as oral medication to deal with itching.
At home, it is recommended that you take the following simple steps:
Wash clothes and bathe regularly Routinely changing underwear, especially when it's damp Avoid wearing clothes that are too tight Avoid using clothes, underwear, and towels together with others To enrich your horizons, you can read articles about tinea cruris.
