I need a few more details before I can help you further.
What is your age ?
SInce how long are you having this condition ?
Are you having any other symptoms - foul smelling discharge, itching, pain, etc ?
Are you sexually active ?
Have you ever had such a condition before this ?
Do you have any other skin condition on other parts of your body ?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Take care.

I am 20 years old patientold.
Sexually active with currently one partner with no sexual past
This has never happened before.
The cracked skin in the crevasses happened about a month ago but wasn't bad and I thought it went away but now it's the cracked skin and dry patches. I did notice excess sweat between my glutes this past week

This could be a very bad yeast infection.
Again, it has to be differentiated from eczema / psoriasis of this area.
Please consult a specialist OB _ GYN for a thorough internal exam and swab and culture.
You need to treat it fast enough, as it is quite severe now.
Do not self medicate it, without the diagnosis being confirmed, as it can aggravate the condition.
Take care.
