I have a redness which has developed in the crease between my upper thigh and the scrotum. It has not itched at all. It burns a little when I get sweaty in that area. Is this something that I need to see a doctor about? Could I transmit it to someone else? How should I treat it?
Seriously, this sort of rash is probably chafing rather than fungus (and even fungus ("jock itch") is not catchy. I'd try a week of combining 1% hydrocortione and 1% clotrimazole (both non-Rx) once a day each. If you see no results, you can see a doc. If it goes away and comes back, just repeat the treatment as needed.
I have a a patch redness between my upper thigh and scrotum it itches every once in a while... Its on both legs.. What are some possible treatments for it? If it is crabs does that mean I can transmit it through oral sex? Thank you
