Red rash in thigh crevice - genital area

    
Asked by redfox2 (Male; 63; UNITED STATES; none; Relevant drugs:low dose aspirin ) on Wed 03, Mar 2010 10:13am

My question is in regard to a rash on the inner thigh between the thigh and scrotum. I am using Lotrimin to keep it at bay, but it returns when I cease using it. The symptoms are: red rash, itching, unpleasant odor. The doctor said it was jock itch although she never did see it because I was using the Lotrimin, but I suspect that it may be some type of yeast or fungal infection. Jock itch usually goes away but my symptoms return as soon as I stop using Lotrimin. Please help. I need to get rid of this once and for all.

Hi, This could be due to sweat dermatitis or even jock itch - due to tinea infection. Keep the skin clean and dry, avoid clothing that rubs and irritates the area. Application of topical over-the-counter antifungal or drying powders, such as those that contain miconazole, clotrimazole, or tolnaftate would help. If symptoms persist - it would be best that to consult a doctor. Regards.
