How to heal rash/cut on the butt? (srs)
I was at the gym yesterday and I was doing multiple sit up workouts with my legs around a heavy bag (imitating the guard)... on a extremely rough and scratchy surface.
I thought it was my tailbone that was sore or something but I take a peak in the mirror and behold -> a reddish scab/rash (not a cut, no bleeding)
I assume it was like rubbing sand paper on something and it opens a bit.
It's high up (where the crack starts) and almost in the cheeks.
How do heal? cause I want to grapple and train but I don't want to keep rubbing it when I butt scoot in BJJ or doing more sit ups
go see a doctor. sounds like a cyst.
Agreed. Or a possibly infected in-growing hair? Doesn't even have to be infected; in-growing hairs are a major inconvenience.

Don't expose your teammates to unknown infections.
I was indeed wearing bike shorts

I mistaken the pain for the tailbone so I kept going and kept rubbing it (sand paper style).
So like, imagine your finger on... sand paper getting rubbed till it's red (I was going this for 6 minutes thinking it was a sore tailbone)
Infection is possible as it is slightly open but it's more of a tender reddish scrub.
Edit: I just googled the word rash, it is not a rash.

MRSA can present as a minor skin irritation.
Get it checked out by a doctor.
Hmm Idk. I haven't felt a thing since right after I hit that crazy mat. It really does look like super tender redness from the intense situps I was doing.

but you're right you never know! I'll get it checked out
If it solely presented after a lot of sit ups, I would just keep an eye on it. I had that happen during the year I experimented with crossfit.
However, first sign of infection, off to the doctor.
Also, stop butt scooting in grappling. As someone who started grappling with no wrestling background, I get it, but you're doing yourself a disservice.
