Common Questions and Answers about Itchy rash groin


Avatar n tn Im a 37 year old male with a itchy rash that started out between the fold where the scrotum meets the inner thigh. Now the rash has spread to both inner thighs, below my navel and buttock areas.The rash is dark in color and very itchy especially at night. Is there anything i can use otc or is it better to find a dermatologist? This rash started about six months ago and has not gotten better.
Avatar m tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be eczema or ringworm groin. Eczema is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. It does not look like any STD. I would suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist as treatment for both is entirely different. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn Dr. Bhupinder Kaur, The itchiness is now turned into a rash and the affected area has skin peeling off and it's annoying me. The outline of the rash is more raised than the rest of the surface. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. The affected area is still constantly itching and it's scaring me. It becomes red now and again but not always. You have suggested a few possiblities of the infection; is any of that related to the fact that I had sex 3 months ago ?
Avatar m tn As of 3 weeks now i have had a red rash around the right side of my groin. The rash is itchy and raw in the crease between my thigh and my groin. Around that time i also received oral sex from an old fling. (I have reached out to her and she says she is clean and has no symptoms of any kind.) The rash has since appeared on the left side of my groin but not as intense as the original. I have used Lotramin AF, Lotramin Ultra, Tinactin and recently started Calamine lotion. Any suggestions?

Avatar m tn Im wondering whether I have jock itch because I am very sporting but I have always worn tight brief underwear instead of looser boxer shorts,my groin occasionally smells aswell and I have marks in the groin that look like its been caused by my underwear rubbing against the skin...any help with what ive got?
Avatar n tn I have itchy red rashes on the "seams" where my legs meet my groin, on the "leg" half of the seam and on both sides. The rashes are itchy and dry, and flake easily when scratched. Nothing on my penis or scrotum, and AFAICT the discomfort and rash both appeared today (nothing but normal groin itchiness before now). I'm concerned it could be HSV-1 because I had (protected) sex with an HSV1 positive partner 5 days ago.
Avatar m tn i got a horrific rash down by my groin, it itches,it burns when scratched,and it is almost always warm. what is going on?!? and how can i stop it?!?!
Avatar n tn I have had a rash in my groin for about 3 to 4 weeks now. I am an avid cyclist, and when I ride, I sweat a lot and there is certainly some rubbing in my groin area. The rash started only on the right side, and in the last 2 days has moved to the left side, also. It is red and itchy, and sometimes there are small pustules. I thought it was jock itch and tried Tinactin, then Lotrimin, and then Lamisil.
Avatar n tn I have a small rash on the very upper inside of both of my thighs in the groin area underneath my scrotum. I always wear a condom during sex. Can this just be some sort of skin rash or should I be concerned about an STD?

Avatar f tn I am currently in Thailand and have been struggling with an itchy rash for about 5 weeks now. I had unprotected sex whilst out here with a fellow traveller (I know stupid) and I noticed I had servere itching after about 2 days or so later around my groin area, so much so I changed my shorts in the night to help it. When I woke up the next day, I had red bumps all around my Pubic area and on my groin going down all the way to my quads.

Avatar m tn Hi all, I have a very straigth forward question as I have been anxious for quite some time about it. Can a man contract HIV from a woman through an itchy rash?
Avatar n tn Hi, I have a really itchy red type of bumpy rash around my lower stomach, and groin area. It actually started in the groin area. I work in a refinery and have to use porta cans a lot. I don't know what it is, but it is very itchy, and very painful now. I have tried the clolotromin, and benedryl clear anti itch, but nothing is helping.
Avatar n tn I have a dark, dry, itchy spot on my groin area. It's between my hip and pubic area and it looks kinda like a light colored bruise or a light birthmark. It is not raised. It itches some during the day and more after a hot shower, sometimes more than others. When looking at it in a mirror it's not very noticeable at all, unless you just knew it was there. Any suggestions to what this could be?
Avatar m tn Rash (small red splotches) in groin area / buttocks, small rash in one armpit (rash not itchy except for the buttocks.) Came about rather suddenly. In days prior no exposure to anything unfamiliar, no new foods. Mowed lawn two 1/2 days prior to onset and worked up a good sweat but I do that every week in the summer! (Showered after.) Have been working on opening my pool but no contact with chemicals, just the water. Would like to know how I got this and how to best treat it!
Avatar n tn I was just wondering if this is a fungal infection, or some kind of rash? I masturbate daily, so could it be some kind of infection from my rotting semen?
Avatar f tn I have a rash in my groin area. Ive had jock itch for a while now, but recently ive had intensely itchy rashes on my foreskin as well. The rash is made of small bumps and lines that swell when i scrath them, and they appear to be filled with pus. The rash appears for about a week, then disappears for a week. This cycle repeats itself. When the rash on penis appears, the outer ring of my jock itch gets inflamed as well. I have never had sex, nor have i had any sexual/intimate contact.
