I HAVE HAD A RASHLIKE SPOT ONTHE INSIDE OF MY LEFT LEG FOR ABOUT A MONTH. IT IS CIRCULAR,DISCOLORED,REDISH PURPLE AND HAS A SLIGHT ITCH.
IT IS AT THE CREASE OF MY LEG THIGH AND SCRODUM AREA.
COULD THIS BE AMELINOMA IN THIS AREA? OR COULD IT BE SCABIES
Whatever it is, is certainly is neither melanoma or scabies. This sounds more like an irritation or perhaps (unlikely) a fungus infection.
My advice is to apply some over-the-counter hydrocortisone once a day in the morning, and some clotrimazole (also OTC) at night. If it's not gone after 2 weeks, show it to a doctor, but I bet it will be (gone.)
Over the course of the day, my inner thigh area begins to sweat and consequently that area begins to really chafe and is uncomfortable. I think as a result of the chafe I have developed reddish streaks(about a cm long each) on the top of each inner thingh where my legs rub. If I rub my finger along the streaks I notice some depth as its not smooth. Do you know what this may be and how can I stop it?
