Hi, I'm a 20 year old man, I've been experiencing several problems with my genital health, that seem unrelated. Firstly, I have a severe rash, which has affected between my thighs, this is extremely irritating and has been made worse by scratching, sometimes it is unnoticable, sometimes very severe. I also have a under the skin on the shaft of my penis, sometimes unnoticable, sometimes quite large, it hasn' given me any pain. I also have a lump on each of my testicles, which again are not painful. I've have been suffering all this for some time, I've been to doctor about these but was not offered much help, mainly that it would subside, but the problems remain.
I read your question and i understand your concern. Jock itch is a likely possibility. Other options are dermatitis or any other fungal infection and eczema. maintain a good hygiene and apply topical antifungals and hydrocortisone and see if it helps.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
