Heat rash near groin

Common Questions and Answers about Heat rash near groin


Avatar m tn I never mentioned it because I don't want to make a big deal about something that can be as simple as a heat rash. I'm trying to go through my head what it could be. I was walking a lot so there was plenty of sweat and rubbing in my tight jeans. Unrelated, but I've been on minocycline for a few months. Sometimes I forgot to take my pill throughout the week of the vacation. I got a couple of spider bites.
Avatar m tn It started off as a heat rash I think because I had gained a few pounds and decided to go back to the gym and my thighs rubbed together often. It didn't have bumps at first but after a week or so of trying to treat it with powder and baths the dots appeared. This morning the itching was out of control as I was drying off the Lamisil cream so I could head to the dermatologist. I rubbed my thighs pretty bad and then scratched them quite a bit as well.
Avatar n tn I flew home the next day and arriving home noticed a rash on my inside upper legs near my groin which went away a few days later. (Seemed like a typical heat rash). While the rash subsided the itch did not and I became very concerned. I self diagnosed and was convinced it was crabs so I used RID which made the itching and redness worse.
Avatar m tn Now, I have noticed a small pinkish-red patch (pencil eraser size), with a bit of a pimple I think, though just under the skin, in the same place on the groin crease on the other side. I'm guessing this is simply a heat or sweat rash. And I'm aware that I've been quite paranoid about this of late, but I would love to hear any feedback, as I was quite concerned that I had genital herpes, as I read that it can be mistaken for other conditions. Thank you again for your time.
Avatar n tn For about 2 weeks, several times a day, I feel heat starting to form on the outer side of my right leg. But I have no rash and my skin does not feel hot to the touch. Please someone help us figure out what is going on.

Avatar m tn Hello, Without examination, confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can bei intertrigo, sweat dermatitis,heat rash or fungal infection. An intertrigo is an inflammation (rash) of the body folds.It most commonly occurs due to bacterial,viral or fungal infection. An intertrigo usually appears red and raw-looking, and may also itch, ooze, and be sore. Pls keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics.
Avatar m tn Currently I'm experiencing a burning sensation on one side of my groin near the area where my leg meets my groin, and frequently radiates upwards into my groin. On inspection there's no noticable redness or rash or blistering, just a burning sensation. It isn't itchy at all. Funny enough, putting my hand on it "cools" the burn. I have been using hydrocortisone to self treat, but it hasn't helped yet. Anyone have any ideas what this might be?
Avatar m tn Hi and welcome. Testing times for herpes is 3 months post encounter. It sounds like youve got prickly rash heat from wearing the tight pants and with the scratching with dirty finger nails has turned into a somewhat cronic condition. You should see a dermatoligist who specializes in these things. Also with unprotected sex with a stranger you might consider a full std panel testing esp if you have a long term partner.
Avatar n tn I have the same heat sensation on my left calf muscle to me it feels like I'm standing near a fireplace but only in that one spot. It doesn't hurt just real noticable I've been getting this feeling for about a week now at various times. I was told that it meant that I'm not grounded my head is in the clouds and that I have big dreams but I haven't been doing anything about it.
544279 tn?1214291008 It is more likely to occur on the neck and upper chest, in the groin, under the breasts, and in elbow creases. Adults usually develop heat rash in skin folds and wherever clothing causes friction. Heat rash looks like a red cluster of pimples or small blisters that maybe associated with itching. Most often, heat rash goes away on its own. Severe forms of heat rash may need medical care, but the best way to relieve symptoms is to cool and dry your skin and prevent sweating. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn For about a week now i have had this itchy raw pealing skin under my scrotum and around the crease of the groin and near the anus its kinda raw pinkish skin its pretty itchy at times mostly when ive been working and sweeting alot. also ive notice my scrotum has a red itchy non raised rash on it.
80575 tn?1207135964 I had to put ice paks on to control the heat. So it didn't look like a rash at first. The neck patch was itchy but the groin patches were not. After about 3 days of that I woke up covered in spots - full on systemic allergic reaction said the doc. The spots are large, more like blotches, not necessarily itchy. On the first day some had a ring of blanched skin around them. They quickly joined up to look like a red mosaic.
Avatar n tn Ok, so I've been putting up with on again, off again itching for months on my labia, near my vaginal opening. Never "diagnosed" with HPV but I did get rid of a suspected wart this past year. Can you have a bacterial infection without discharge? It drives me CRAZY sometimes, the only thing that calms it is gold bond ointment, which is minty and refreshing but I'd like no itch. No "rash" that I can see, unless I give in and scratch.
Avatar m tn Like I said before it is not directly on anything the immediate pubic area. I play soccer and I do sweat down there. Although, it does not look like heat rash. I wear compression shorts only while playing games. I have noticed these spots for about a week now and they seem to be lessening a bit or staying the same. I have Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP 0.1% (Triamcinolon)-(Steroid cream..?) which was originally prescribed for mosquito bites. Should I use that cream on them?
Avatar m tn I also have the same thing off and on for years with the severe rash, but most time when the rash is not there i feel like its not ok in my groin area. Just spent $500 on STI test all negative not sure what to do..I got this after my first hSV2 out break in 2001 and then it would go from my eyes to my penis. Any help would be good.
Avatar n tn Over the past 2-3 days I've been experiencing rapid growth in some type of rash on my face, hands, and groin area. Three days ago the rash began on my hands as a few small bumps on the top of my right pinkie and ring fingers, as well as in the webbing between these two finger and the middle finger. The next day i began to notice redness and itching around my right eye and later my left.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to be diagnosed with shingles without having an external rash? The pain is on my left side only in a band near my waist line. The pain is horrific - even to the touch. All symptoms seem to be consistent with shingles but after 2 weeks of this, there is no rash. Narcotics, vicodin and darvocet have helped some but not completely.
Avatar f tn It doesn't hurt. It's just a bunch of raised bumps. I at first thought this was a heat rash due to sitting on the couch constantly while on leave. *i have VERY sensitive skin and am use to having bumps develop or eczema flare ups if something irritates my skin* Well, the once harmless rash jumped to my face and neck last night while out with my husband. I attributed this to hives because i was beyond stressed out about who knows what...
Avatar f tn My bruise was black to yellow from no known origin on the back of my hand near thumb. Rash distinctly red with dark red spots and very itchy. My mom had eczema and was allergic to her own blood. May be a clue, except that I've never had allergies. 65 year old female. I've never run into such a concurring forum on such a specific topic as this. Dermatology students, start your research.
Avatar f tn He had severe joint pain, red speckles on his bottom, raised bruise like welts near his groin. I was told it was from his immune system attacking itself, and his kidneys and it would go away on its own. It eased up. But in the end, we found out my son is allergic to milk, and has a reaction 4 hours later. It comes in severe joint pain (triggers artheritis), and many other symptoms. Dairy also was to blame for his many ear and sinus infections, and colds.
Avatar m tn I noticed a few red spots on my penis and the rash started spreading to parts of my inner thigh, as well as near my anus. It's a red rash, scaly, and extremely itchy. The rash has spread to cover most of my penis now, where it was only a few spots before, and my scrotum is constantly very itchy and painful, possibly from scratching.
Avatar n tn I've been suggested everything from herpes to psoriasis to heat rash because I'm overweight... I would appreciate anyone's help... the skin is starting to take on a slightly shriveled appearance near the bumps, but I think that's due to being this way so long... I appreciate any suggestions!
Avatar n tn I'm 56 years old and never experienced this until about a week ago. Super sensitivity feeling like raw skin in right groin area and right side "bra" area under breast. No rash, nothing visible. Just that one side of the body. Contact with underwear is driving me crazy. My doctor retired and I haven't found another one. Sounds like I might try the mystery OTC ointment if someone could share that please.
Avatar n tn 3 months ago, I began to get a rash in my groin and thought it was jock itch. I treated it with Lamisil but it just kept getting worse and spreading then severely begain to weep and would not heal. This rash then appeared in my armpits and the hives came back, but this time quarter to fist size. I have never felt ill or sick during any of the attacks but my neck is stiff, probably from the stress of all these painful and unbearable issues taking place all over my skin.
Avatar f tn I had a skin rash near my inner thigh close to the crease. I felt a burning sensation. I have been exposed to a lot of dry heat/sun light few days prior to developing the rash. It was so bad that I had to place a small tissue paper between the rash and the groin area so the skin wouldn't rub against each other. It lasted about two days. I have had this before around the same area. I am not sure what it is. It was very painful to walk. But, it healed in two days.
Avatar n tn I also have a large red patch under my right breast that stays red and sore. When I went to the doctor he just said it was heat rash. I asked him why if my breast were the same size I am only getting the heat rash under one?
Avatar n tn about a week ago i noticed i has a raised lymph node in my groin well after shaving i had a ingrown hair coming in i tweased it out and it turned into a scab about 4 days after that i noticed a couple pimples that looked like more shave rash after popping a couple they scabbed normaly but their is a red raised rash area about a the size of a quarter near the scab and from sweating im sure it is harder to heal lately i have been outside alot hiking,camping out in the heat alot every once in awhi
Avatar n tn He injected him with some medicine and gave a cream named Betamethasone Valerate Cream and pills called Prednisone. We have yet to see how does this works on him. Doc, could it possibly be heat rash? The rash that showed up in his groin looked more like jock itch rash. He has been getting this itch for about 4-5 years on and off but never had any rash, not even a single red bump before. This is the first time he got that severe rash along with burning sensation.
Avatar m tn It was not and is still not itchy. At the same time, an itchy patch of rash appeared on the inside of my thigh/groin area, which could also just be a heat/contact rash. The single bump has not spread but it hasn't resolved itself either. I'm attempting to treat the inner thigh rash with baby powder right now. Do I have anything to be worried about/should I get checked?
