Red rash around groin

Common Questions and Answers about Red rash around groin


Avatar n tn Over the past several days I have had some red irritated skin develope around my groin area. It started out being a little painful so I thought it was due to chaffing because a I walk and sweat alot at work. I treated with medicated powder, then vaseline, and then lanacane. The condition has gotten worse. The skin on the bottom of my scrotum is raw and feels like it has hardened and there is an intense stinging, burning sensation when I walk or move?
Avatar f tn t experienced any pain, fever, or any fluid coming out from the rash. The one on my lower abdomen is red and the one on my groin is older so its a bit brown, darker in color. The skin on the oldest rash (right groin) is rough. Recently about few days ago, I noticed that I was getting a smaller rash on my left groin area. I feel like these rashes especially the one on the lower abdomen gets itchier at night. I also noticed my rashes got worse this week.

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 Started off as slight discomfort while sitting and walking, turned into a bunch of red spots that developed around inner thigh areas (both at same time), and has turned into red & irritated scrotum (with a normal patch down the middle) and re-occurring development of the red spots on the inner thighs. 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.
Avatar m tn I have a red groin rash in between my legs but not on my genitals, although near my genitals that I caught from my brother's (clean) underwear. It goes away with Lamasil, but if I wash with soap, or get sweat there it comes back. It is also on the head of my penis and probably up my arse.
Avatar m tn Hello, i am wondering about a lumpy red rash that has appeared on my upper thigh groin area recently. red lumps have formed around this area and have been there for at least 2 or 3 weeks now, they have turned a purple colour and look to be expanding. I have done research into genital herpes however most pictures seem to show spot like growths and are said not to leave red or purple marks so i dont know if what i have is herpes or jock itch or another related problem.
1491984 tn?1288526745 I am a long haul trucker. I get this rash in my groin area that is very annoying. It appears on either side of my scrotum, red to deep red in colour. Itches and sometimes burns. Sometimes a whiteishness appears on top of the redness and it tends to smell bad. Sometimes Penaten Cream helps, sometimes not.
Avatar f tn What you have is probably intertrigo which is an inflammation (rash) appearing in the body folds like groin, back of knee, neck, axilla/armpit etc. It can be red and raw-looking, and may itch, ooze, and be sore. It can be a bacterial, viral or fungal infection. Please keep the area clean, dry and apply some topical antiseptics. OTC anti allergics will help. You can apply topical creams with zinc oxide and mild steroids and see if it helps.
Avatar n tn However, steroids should not be used in the groin alone without consulting your doctor since steroids alone can make the rash of jock itch much worse. If the rash is very red and itchy, especially if it has blisters at the edge, a topical steroid such as hydrocortisone can also be applied aside from the clotrimazole cream. If this persists, it would be best to see your doctor for proper management. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Nine weeks ago I had protected vaginal sex with a sex worker. About a week after I developed a red bumpy rash in the crease of my groin. It appeared that there were small red, pimples that itched and hurt. I went to my GP who said the rash in my groin didn’t resemble an std, and suggested lotrimin, which severely dried the area out. Difficult to tell how much it actually helped the rash. At 4 weeks I tested negative on an IGG test for HSV1and2. The rash sort of gets better and then gets worse.
Avatar n tn Ok here is my issue I have had 2 previous issues in 2 years with groin irritation. Both issues came after shaving and led to a red scrotum and small whiteheads in my groin region with cracking skin in my groin fold. Both times it freaked me out. I have OCD and am a hypochondriac. On Friday after a long run I examined my groin and on my left side, well below the scrotum I noticed a reddish mark close to where my underwear band touches. This mark didn't change all weekend.
Avatar n tn It isn’t very itchy, and has spread a bit, but not markedly. The rash in my groin is red/orange colour and scaly/plaque-like, with lots of tiny red bumps and dots, while the one on my stomach is a small oval ring shape, with an outer edge that’s redder. Could it be ringworm or another fungal infection? I’ve been putting canesten cream (Clotrimazole) on for the past 4 days, but there’s no obvious improvement.
Avatar m tn But yesterday i went outside to do some work around the yard and started to sweat alot and i dont know if its from that or the creams/spray ive been using, (calmoseptine ointment, and the solarcaine aloe extra burn relief spray) but a new rash broke out on my inner thighs red dots around red skin which is lower and chafing or peeling? but anyways my testicles are looking to be clearing up in redness but teh white dots are still there and now this red heat rash(?) on my inner thighs.
Avatar n tn Hi i have a itchy red area in pubic area around my penis does not spread at all and is only really itchy when sweaty or its agitated. Ive been to the GUM clinic and i was clear im sexually active with the same partner for the past 7 months and she has no problems similar. Its not extremely red and doesnt look like any jock itch ive seen it hasnt spread and i have had it for 10ish months now when itched it seems like the skin is really dry and flaky.
Avatar n tn i went and got hiv tested (not herpe tested) and the doctor also looked at the groin rash (the head rash had dissapeared so i foolishly didnt mention it) she said it was some sort of yeast rash and gave me a cream for it. i barely used the cream went away on its own, then came back...stayed for awhile, spread to my stomache and under my pec muscles...slowly spreading. i used cream on it nonstop and it would go away awhile, then come back some more...
Avatar f tn 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. I also had the rash on my back and on my right elbow and on my left knee.
Avatar f tn My butt was itchy right around the hole, I had groin rash that was also itchy. Now and again I was noticing a red swelling on the tip Of my penis. What got me worried though was a weird discmort/dull pain in my testis, prostate and tip of the penis especially when not being active. This has stuck around now for about a month, now the head of my penis an underside of foreskin is almost always red, the dull pain in the region almost always there and thobs sometimes.
Avatar m tn t an STD. Over the past month I have had persistent itching on both of my inner thighs and all around the groin area. Within the last week or so while this was going on I noticed what appeared to be dry itchy spots on my penis. I scratched at three of these spots and they turned into hard red bumps, when squeezed a tiny amount of clear fluid with traces of blood came out. I also have a few of these bumps in my pubic hair area and on the side of my testicles.
Avatar f tn Hi, around 5 months ago i have unprotected sexx with a lady. A month later i experienced a small red rash on one side of my groin. This has lasted now for 4 months. Are there any STD's that this relates too? the rash does not itch at all and is flat to the skin.
Avatar m tn I noticed a light red rash on BOTH sides of my inner groin (did not itch nor was it painful) and a few pimple-like bumps near the base of the penis and scrotum (were not clustered together, but were in the same general area. Also, they weren't located on the surface of the rash). These pimples closely resembled a white-head and upon close inspection every pimple had a hair growing out of it. They did not itch nor were they painful to touch.

Avatar m tn I am not sure whether this is sex related (I doubt it is), but I realised I have a red rash in my groin area. Friday night (2 days ago) I had protected intercourse with a girl. The day after I played soccer, and then cricket on the Sunday. Today I noticed deep in my groin crease there is a red rash I have itched it a couple of times which has inflamed it. It does seem a little like a blister to some extent, but this could be caused by itching through my trousers.
Avatar m tn He then said that the rash around my groin is actually jock itch and that I had gotten balanitis on my glans. He prescribed me fluconazole 150mg for three days and a ketoconazole cream to use for two weeks. The jock itch has gone away but the balanitis has majorly improved but I still get red rashes on it (no bumbs) throughout the day and it seems to worsen when I do not use the cream. I am uncircumcised and was STD tested but I do not think they checked for herpes.
