Starting a few months ago, I dealt with a bout of folliculitis on
my left thigh
. After several treatments (Bactrim, Doxcycline, and finally Clindamycin gel), it finally seemed to go away a few weeks ago. When I did a follow-up with my PCP, he said it simply looked like my skin was irritated at this point and that I had nothing to really worry about.
In the week following, I noticed that the folds next to my scrotum were getting increasingly red and sweaty.
