Skin rashes near groin

Common Questions and Answers about Skin rashes near groin


Avatar n tn Hello . I am 25 year old man and have scratch marks near the groin. It started when i was about 18 and irritated with itching problem. I didn't take any medication, thinking it would stop. My skin had blisters, red color and i scratched everytime. This has left me with dark marks and i feel envy about myself. It's been 4 to 5 years that my skin has been affected. Am i late? Please suggest what to do? Can those marks go?
Avatar n tn You may have a chafing rash which comes from the fraction of skin rubbing against skin, or perhaps there might be an element of fungus (" jockey itch"). Your first approach might be to apply one percent hydrocortisone every morning and terbinafine cream at night (both are over-the-counter), along with regular application of a moisturizer such as ordinary hand cream. Try your best not to scratch.
Avatar m tn Hi all I suffer from sweat rashes around my groin, and I’m trying to identify which kinds, as I believe I’m suffering from 3 different types... The first and most long standing is on my perineum, this never goes or appears to get worse, it’s just a redness, it doesn’t itch and isn’t really a problem other than its unsightly. It doesn’t have a particularly defined edge, no bumps, no spots, just a red patch like I’ve been chaffed, which I’ve not!
Avatar n tn About a month ago or so, I shaved the hair around my groin area and, in doing so, discovered two red skin growths near the top base area and then slightly to the right. Neither were actually on the penis. They were pink-ish (slightly flesh-colored I suppose), but have become red (no doubt from my incessant picking at them). They are completely painless (except when I pick at them to the point of irritation). I assumed they might be a rash, skin tags, or acne.

Avatar m tn Hi doctor, Two weeks ago, I was diagnosed with ringworms near my groin area and on my penis. I've been taking Terbinafine tablets and applying terbinafine cream, and it's been slowly improving. But I think the rash has spread to my fingers. The area between my fingers and near my nails is very dry and crusty, sometimes giving off a transparent liquid. There are small bumps on my fingers as well, and there's a constant urge to itch. Its been there for the past 3 days.
Avatar m tn i looked it up online and someone recommended Vaseline, so i looked around and found some OTC petroleum vaseline with topical antibiotics in my medicine cabinet, and began using it twice a day in a one inch radius around the effected areas (now on my left buttock, scrotum, penis shaft, and some dry skin on sides of feet). this worked for the dry skin and itchiness so i used it for a week, as per directions on the tube, and everything seemed to clear up.
Avatar n tn It's now 28 days later, the redspot gone since about day18-19, but the migrating burning feeling in the groin and near the testicle continue. I know I probably need to test because skin-to-skin contact is definitely a way to catch HSV-2. What do you think about the level of risk of contracting HSV-2 from a brief "naked" lapdance (butt only) with no sign of a current outbreak on her? Does this sound like herpes, something else (high risk for HPV too??
Avatar m tn Hello, I have a question in regards to a skin irritation that I have had in my groin area for the past 7 months or so. The skin on my scrotum, the folds between my scrotum and inner thighs, the area between my scrotum and anus, and the area where my penis shaft meets my glans has been itchy, almost prickly for quite some time. It is not unbearable, just rather annoying, especially when I sit down or when I wake up in the morning.
Avatar n tn I am a female of 21yrs old ,little fat , Because of thinghs getting touched , the thighs near the joining of legs has become dark black and sometimes i could get acne as well in that area.. Please suggest some medicine or any natural cure for it to get rid of the black skin , it is not itchy ..
Avatar n tn I have a lump that feels like it's under the skin near my clitoris. It is not painful though it smarted a little when I tried to pop it. It is slightly swollen and a little red and the size of a pea. I notice some people here have similar 'down there' problems a while back, looking at the dates of the comments, and I was wondering whether it went away or...?
Avatar f tn Two years ago, during summers, I got ring-like rashes near my arm-pits, under breasts and in inner thighs. They were dark-brown in colour and would cause a lot of itching. Assuming that it is a fungal infection, i applied a known anti-fungal cream 'Ringuard'. Though the itching subsided, the rashes still remained. As the winters came almost all disappeared but those in inner thighs gave way to a dark discoloration. Now this year too, these have recurred but only in inner thighs.
Avatar n tn ) started under my armpits and on my upper/inner thighs near my groin. I itch it CONStantly, (though I have told myself not to, and have desparately tried NOT to, it's like i cannot control it...) at first I thought i CREATED the inflammation *WITH* my scratching (because the skin appeared to be normal at the first feeling of extreme itchiness...
Avatar m tn hey for about 2 weeks now the skin near my pubic between the thighs and penis to be accurate.the skin started coming out along with frequent itching sensation.....and so i started applying calamine lotion and now it has started producing rashes and it somehow keeps spreading..also the region in and around that area started turning kind of blackish......i asked one of my friends and he told me that hes been having these same problems since three years..
Avatar n tn Near the foreskin, there are small,red, and *slightly* swollen rashes that itch a lot. The skin is slightly foldy and dry at the base of the penis. When erect, these outward signs are barely visible. The condition has worsened from day 1 to day 2. There is no constant urge to itch during the day, but it gets very itchy if I stroke or rub the penis. I've been refraining from masturbation since I noticed this, and have used some moisturizing lotion.
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 n tn near constant tingling in my penis underneath skin at certain spots; hot rashes just to the right of the frenulum that come/go & then dry up; groin pain comes/goes; whiter-skin discoloration that comes and goes around the rim of my penis head:
Avatar m tn My only concern is that the raised skin appeared farther up on the base of the shaft rather than the area where my penis and skin folds meet which is where the original eczema was diagnosed. Also,the raised skin is different in appearance from the other areas of eczema. I may be overeacting. I will see if it gets better over the next few days.
Avatar f tn My 24 year old daughter with IP still has dark pigmentation at the tops of her thighs near the groin area. We were always told it would fade into adulthood and has somewhat but there is still a lot of it. That is where she had the biggest darkest spots as a child.
Avatar m tn So are your other symptoms, such as the pimple of the scrotal skin. The most common causes of crural fold rashes are irritation from skin moisture, superficial bacterial infections, yeast, and non-yeast fungal infections of the sort that also cause athletes foot and jock itch. All these are more common in overweight persons, in whom the crural fold may be continually moist from sweat -- but certainly can also occur in slim individuals. A number of other conditions also are possible.
Avatar n tn I'm afraid I can't make sense of your question. I don't know of any "cosmetic" rashes that can be removed by surgery. The rashes that are most common in the groin are chafing/irritation or fungus. Neither one can be treated surgically, and neither is cosmetic. Since you've already shown it to a dermatologist, wouldn't it make sense to ask the doctor who saw it to tell you the diagnosis? If not, perhaps you should get another opinion. Best. Dr.
Avatar n tn I've noticed itchyness on the insides of my thighs from this area to my knees and see other rashes sometimes. These rashes have been there for a few months.. I posted the following back in october. the previous symptoms are not as bad as before but i do notice pimple looking things usually in one place or another.. usually one on my thigh and another on my scrotum that matches up with where the thigh may tough. Please let me know what you think and if you think it may be contagious.
Avatar n tn Hard to be sure. It sounds as though no culture was done of the groin, just the throat. Strep can cause rashes, but not generally like the one you describe. I'm not sure that the rash is a true allergy, but it does sound inflammatory in nature rather than infectious (among other things, steroids would have made an infection worse, whereas, you appear to be getting better.
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 I forgot that 4 weeks ago I got these two dime sized slightly raised bumps on my groin (near where the dry flaky skin occurs). These two bumps appeared during my flu like symptoms and haven't bothered me but haven't gone away! I'm worried they are herpes or two warts. They are red and when I first noticed them was the first time I got the dry flaky and cracking skin along the crack of my groin. What could this be?
Avatar m tn Hi, A month ago (around 26th Dec2010), I developed some skin infection near the men private area (upper thighs area). Although, I was not too sure I thought its a common itching that has taken place and I used to apply talcum powder/medicated gel/even mustard oil to get relief. But when the skin condition worsened I had a visit to a Skin Specialist and he mentioned some fungal and Bacterial infection. Both side of skin was irritated very much and wounded.
Avatar m tn but has only appeared after two months here.also the rash is in between the fold of my leg and groin and spreads out down the leg slightly but not near or on my penis.all though my ball sack is also very itchy but no rash.doesnt seem to be getting worse or better and i have it slightly in my left arm pit but but barely in my right.i have a 27 hour 2 stop flight very soon and would love to get this cleared up before it will be hell.
Avatar n tn Hi For several months I have been getting this weird sensation that my skin is crawling. This happens just behind my right shoulder blade in exactly the same place every time. It generally happens for no reason that I can fathom. It is a sort of itching sensation and then a sensation that there is something crawling under my skin. When I rub it with my fingers it disappears for a while but inevitably it returns within a few minutes. There is no pain involved.
