Hi,

Though nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions - Thick red patches with a well defined edge could indicate psoriasis.

' Flexural psoriasis (inverse psoriasis) appears as smooth inflamed patches of skin. It occurs in skin folds, particularly around the genitals (between the thigh and groin), the armpits, under an overweight stomach (pannus), and under the breasts (inframammary fold). It is aggravated by friction and sweat, and is vulnerable to fungal infections.'

Let us know if you need any other information.

Hi,

It is best to avoid any intercourse. This is due to the possibility of a superadded secondary infection which could be contagious.

Let us know if you have any other doubts.

Regards.
