Rash on groin area

Common Questions and Answers about Rash on groin area


Avatar m tn Steroid creams seem to eliminate the red spots on the thighs, but the discomfort and irritation on the scrotum/and area between the anus and scrotum is always lingering. Doctors have had me on three or four different types of anti-fungal creams, different steriod creams and it will not end. Any ideas? It takes forever to get into a dermatologist and I’m at the end of my rope with this.
Avatar m tn I have had a rash in my groin area for many years. It doesnt itch too much but it does get painful when inflamed.Ive seen several doctors over the years and they always prescribe topical creams but after several weeks of use,there has been only minor improvements.I was told that there are powerful oral remedies that would take care of it, but they could be harmful to my liver also?
Avatar n tn Ok.. Im going to get right to the point. I have this rash in my groin area. Where it is mostly at, is in the crease of my pelvic area, You know where your pelvis and your thigh meets. Really bad on one side then it spread to the other side, and a little on my balls, and the just a tad on my upper pelvis. It started out about like a week and a half ago, just one dot, then a few days later the same like different sized circled dots in the same area, then it just started to spread.
Avatar n tn In the past few weeks I have seen this rash come back but enlarged (wider) in the same right side groin area for about a 2 inch by maybe 1 inch strip. Some mornings it looks like it has almost disappeared but when I take a warm/hot shower it seems to bring it back with a strong red color. For the most part it is not itchy or hurting me but the darn thing is not going away as it always has in the past the few times I had similar (but smaller area) symptons.
Avatar m tn Hi. I first noticed a reddish rash in my groin area ( the crease of inner thighs to the sides of my scrotom years back. Since then, I have had similar reddish rashes infrequently on either my left inner thigh or right, or both. it happens once in a while. But I usually notice it to occur if I havent showered regularly or masterbated and didnt shower aftewards. I assumed that it was some kind of bacteria or uncleanliness. I also noticed the rash usually doesnt last more then a week.
Avatar m tn Hello, This rash in the groin area can be due to contact dermatitis, sweat rash or dermatitis. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime. use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Also use cotton clothes and change the clothes twice if there is any increased sweating. Try keeping the skin free of sweat as far as possible. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort.
Avatar m tn I have started to get a rash on my inner thigh and on my pubic bone. The rash looks like separate large pimples and it is sensitive to the touch but otherwise not painful. It is not itchy, although a few weeks ago the area between my thigh and scrotum was itchy. I do not think this is an std because I have been very careful with who i sleep with, and have only had one partner in the past year and a half. I think it may be some sort of fungal infection but I am not sure.
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 For over the last 5 or 6 days, I have had a rash present in my right inner groin area. It is fairly reddish and pink, and also appears vertically (kind of like scratches of some sort) on the underside of my scrotum. There aren't any blisters, warts, or pimples present. There is not much itching to be honest, and there is minor irritation when something rubs it excessively. I have been using clomitatizone on it for some while, hoping to see some improvement. So far, there hasn't been much luck.
Avatar n tn The area around my testicles, in between the testicle and the leg on both sides has a bad rash, I think. The area is sweaty, has painful bumps and sores, and has a very foul odor to it. It only hurts if something rubs against it, and sometimes when I walk. This seems to go away and come back every once in a while. It may go away for a week and stay for two or three. Sometimes it hurts badly, and I can't stand to walk. Can you help me with what this might be, and maybe a treatment?
Avatar n tn I have an itchy rash ,between my groin area and my inner thigh , it's lasted more than a month and seems to be spreading ,HELP ME PLEASE!!!!
Avatar f tn So I got a fungus rash on my hands and inside elbow area and it iches so I got a cream. A little into it now I have 4 fairly small red bumps on my penile head/shaft/scrotum. It rarely itches, but it doesn't hurt to pee or touch I just decides to put lotrimine and fluocinonide on it waiting to see if it works. I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago with my girlfriend.
Avatar f tn I have had a rash going on, off and on on the inside of my groin area. It is red, with a few bumps, and sometimes wet. It gets worse after shaving. I have been applying nystatin and triamcinolone cream given by my doctor, but it still hasn't fully gone away. Any idea what it could be?
Avatar n tn The reason I ask is I had surgery on right side for hernia and then was pressing very hard on left lymph node area. Thank you for any response. I developed rash about 10 days after unprotected sex with long time partner who never has had any symptoms. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/1063433'>STD or something else</a>.
Avatar m tn I have this rash on my upper thigh/groin area that is very red and slightly painful. I'm not sure if it is just chafing of if it is something more serious. I haven't been sexually active since about December ,but have been experiencing this issue for a few months. I wear boxers which keeps my groin cool so I don;t think its heat rash. I hope it isnt a STD. I looked at pics of all the STDs I can think of and none look identical to it.
