Hello, i recently noticed that i have developed a rash that resembles chafing on my inner thighs. I noticed it about 4 days ago. It is still there, although its not at all painful and the itch is only mild and there is no sign of any cuts abrasions or sores on penis or testicles, i am concerned about Herpes. Although i am not displaying any of the common symptoms associated, with the exception of the rash. I guess im asking if its a case of perhaps me being paranoid or not?
An itchy rash that appears on inner thighs is known as intertrigo, or an inflammation of the body folds or two skin surfaces due to their friction and irritation.
It usually develops from the chafing of warm, moist skin in the areas of the inner thighs and genitalia, the armpits, under the breasts, the underside of the belly, behind the ears, and the web spaces between the toes and fingers.
Intertrigo occurs more often among overweight individuals, those with diabetes and eczema.
Try to put some baby diaper rash ointment such as a topical zinc oxide cream, clean the area with antibacterial soap and keep it dry.
Avoid to use thigh cloths and underwear.
I have aquestion about that too ause i developed jocik itch , but I also have probems in my perieneum and what felt like I was having an ob beacuse i went online and the stated that jock itch is often mistaken. I went to two providers who diagnosed me with jock itch. I thoughtIhad all the tell tale signs except fever and headache...I started to have a clear discharge an experience pain in the tip of my penis.. When I thought that I was having an outbreak and hte skin was read I put tolfanatean it shrank. it would not burn but be irritated then I went back and did a barrage of test blood and urine twice over with IGG specifc ad IGM test which stated that I have Hsv 1 but no Hsv 2...but I continued to have jock itch which moved..i was perscribed cipro which helped but I was feeling like the feeling moved to the bottom of my penis, I was experiencing a feeling like I had electric pins and nedes in myleg on day and then through out my body. I was having flank pain and I thought I had swollen lymp nodes in my pelvic area but my doctor examined me an told me that they were not swollen. He did note that there seemed to be a problem with my testicles and I did not experience pain while urinating but Ifelt pain when ejaculating. I went back for more testing and told him how I slept with someone who slept wit someone who had HSV 2 and they developed it. I had explained that to him and hesaid that the tests were comprehensive and that i was ok.. still have jock itch that has retreated up to the top of my but cheeks, I experience occassional flank pain and pain in my testicle when I dump with a terrible pressure that presses into my penis. I itch but i use the ointment clomitrazole that kills the itching. but i stll feel itchiness and a slight burning around my genital area. I had a pimple at the top of y but cheek but my girltold me thatit was scaly and that it was one large bump and a tiny one and she popped it and a core came out of it. I am very hyper over this to the point tht i was gie paxil which did not work and then xanax. i was getting burning in my chest and that I was told was the effect of paxil as well as the electric shocks. I was put on flagyl and fluconazol and that stopped the irritation and cler discharge. I still feel funny when I ejaculate but i still have the slight itchiness around the genitals and anus, with slight pain in the scrotum and I have not had any blister orbmps and when ithought i had one , the doctor examined it and stated that it was nothing. I woner if i was misdiagnosed or do i have sme kid of prostrate issue cause I feel pressure and my peni tingles when i sit a certan way? heard tht the symptoms I have can often be mistaken an can be HSV 2
