Hello, I have a rash on the skin between my scrotum and my leg and a little bit on my leg and scrotum, it is itchy and little patches of skin have turned red but they don't seem to be open wounds, the skin around it looked like it was peeling so i put vaseline intensive care lotion on it and i went out and bought a hydrocortizone cream and a neosporin-like cream, will this help? or am i dealing with something more serious? also-i started wearing a wrap around my upper leg during sports because of a pulled hamstring, could sweating with that have caused this? and will it spread?
From the symptoms it can be fungal infection or tinea cruris or contact dermatitis. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. Most cases of fungal infections respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine, ketaconazole and clotrimazole. You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients. Some of them are Lamisil, Monistat derm, Mycelex, and Nizoral. Also avoid wearing the wrap for some days.
If the symptoms persist then please consult a dermatologist.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.

I have had rashes and dark skin on and around scrotum and inner thigh for last 5-6 years. In the beginning rashes and small cuts used to appear between inner thighs and they would heal themselves but they left dark and loose skin when they disappeared. But for last 2-3 months these rashes and cuts started appearing again in ferocious way and these have extended on testicle skins too. When they appear it itches too much that results in small cuts with small blood. i m very depressed. what should i do.. i don't know who should i see a skin or sex doctor. Plz help ,, if you could suggest some medicine that i can buy in Mumbai
