Hello, I'm 14, and I have noticed some red dots on the left and right side of my groin. It's between my inner thigh and my sack. I'm a virgin, so I'm fairly sure it isn't an STD, but I know I can get them from other things. I have never been in a sexual encounter. Now, the red dots are in a small group that's only in the part of skin that's usually put together when you have your legs together. I'm just assuming that it is jock-itch or whatever, but I don't want to be mistaken.

Do you cause too much friction on your skin of the inner thighs when walking?
Do you have red areas with raw spots, where the skin is broken open?
Are you experiencing itch, burn, or sting?

I don't shave, and I don't walk alot. I'm not sure- but it itches really bad at times. The skin isn't broken open.

This really looks like jock-itch,
The prominent symptom is itchiness with redness in your groin, including your genitals, inner thighs, and sometimes, buttocks and anal area.
This is caused by fungi that are normally found on the skin and not causing problems, but, when on some areas of the body where skin is likely to be moist and warm, like groin area, the fungi grow and thrive, resulting in a fungal infection.

Try an over-the-counter antifungal ointment, lotion, powder or spray.

Best wishes!
