    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    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

    Agreed. Or a possibly infected in-growing hair? Doesn't even have to be infected; in-growing hairs are a major inconvenience.
    Train hard, fight easy.

    Ruling out MRSA among other things is your immediate responsibility.
    Don't expose your teammates to unknown infections.

    I doubt it's a cyst as I got it from doing situps, not in the butt, not the tailbone, but the skin right outside of it. The mat I was on was extremely rough/scratchy and I was doing situps with the heavybag my skin was rubbing the heck out of it (If I should even call it a mat, it was one of those black cheap crossfit mats) . 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.

    I want to know how I can make it heal faster so I can butt scoot in BJJ asap

    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.
