I lost over 120 lbs about 17 years ago. Then 4 years ago I lost another 35 lbs and have kept it off. Unfortunately, I have been left with a large amount of skin in the crease of my buttock area. I have Ankylosing spondylitis and Systemic Psoriatic Arthrtis which make me prone to fungal infections of the skin. The fact that my skin lies on top of itself in this area increases my risk and causes me to get fungal infections on a regular basis. I cannot afford to have the surgery. Are there any resources for me out there? I hate to ask, but this is a threat to my health, and seriously uncomfortable. Please let me know if there is any hope for me.
Thank you for any help or advice you can give me.
