Hi! I apologize in advance for my nasty crack! I noticed this red line about a week ago, but it could have been there longer as I don't spread my crack in the mirror very often, lol. I have quite a lot of ass meat, both fat and muscle, so my gluteal cleft is quite tall and deep and not easy to notice. There's no indication the red line is there without looking for it specifically. I wear a lot of yoga leggings and probably don't do laundry as often as I should, but since noticing it I've been wearing airy dresses and being meticulous with my hygiene. I haven't shaved it despite general wisdom as I worry about irritation and/or ingrown hairs. No pain, no itching, no swelling that I can see - there's a slight suggestion of a dimple in the photos, but in different light or poses it's not visible. In person it looks a lot smoother but that may be because I can't get my eyes as close as my phone. Nothing is draining or smelling, and even if it is a dimple I can't see a sinus (but it's hard to look close at your own behind). I am going to see my doctor in 2 days regardless, but I thought I'd ask because a) I'm a bit of a hypochondriac, diagnosed ADHD and GAD and this is wearing me very thin to worry about, and b) there seems to be disagreement in the medical community about diagnosing and treating PSD, so I may as well ask you experienced fellows too. Other symptoms: Frequent urge to urinate Numbness between shoulder blades Neck pain between shoulder blades (I attributed both of these neck ones to be bad computer posture, but will talk to my doc about it too) Heartbearn and abdominal tenderness that is new to me General sense of stress and unwellness... My main questions - does it look like classic pilo? What else could it be? It was surprisingly impossible to find information about "red line between buttocks" - even most pilo photos don't look like mine. Is there any benefit to catching it early before it hurts and leaks and swells etc? The idea of surgery or packing a wound is making me a bit nauseous but I'd rather hear it. Thanks for your time.
