flintstones and rubble
For about half a year now, whenever my ass gets sweaty, flint-colored specks start to appear. They come out around the hole and sometimes under it. It is also occasionally itchy, but not always.
This is only around my butt and nowhere else. It really bunches up when I do a lot of walking or running.
I sent you an email about this a while ago, and you sent me some links about hygiene; but still this comes back. I am an eighteen-year-old male and just wondering if this is a simple fix. Or does it require a trip to the doctor for a colonoscopy?
It's not every day that someone describes debris coming from their butt as being the color of flint. I don't know much about flint, so this is what I found at Wikipedia on the subject:
"Flint (or flintstone, also known as silex) is a hard, sedimentary cryptocrystalline silicate form of the mineral quartz, categorized as a variety of chalcedony. Flint is usually dark-grey, blue, black, or deep brown in color, and often has a glassy appearance. It occurs chiefly as nodules and masses in sedimentary rocks, such as chalks and limestones."
Now, if you had gallstones or kidney stones, I might be able to offer some advice to you. But flintstones in the ass is out of my area. You might want to write to Hanna-Barbera for help with this one.
In the meantime, though, either get some wet wipes to help you get a little cleaner down there, or attempt to accumulate enough of them to make some sort of ornamental decorations. You never know -- you could be sitting on a gold mine!
