Cracked Skin between buttocks?

I have extreme itching between my buttocks (above the anus) and I looked at it with a mirror and noticed that there is about a 2-3 inch cut that looks like my skin maybe got dry and cracked or was caused from wiping or from underwear?  I'm not sure if this is something I should go to the doctor for or if I should try to home remedy it.  I put Neosporin on it for now, but that is not helping the itching.  Any ideas?

Not drying yourself thoroughly enough after showering can leave water sitting in there and can cause this.  Make a conscious effort to dry there after every shower and that should help after a few days.  Also, you can use some cornstarch baby powder too to help keep things dry.
