Rash on upper leg

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?

Nick.

Probably not.  Probably not.  Hydrocortisone + clotrimazole.

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.

Best.
