Since I've moved to England from Spain, I've been unbearably sticky and itchy in my groin area. It seems that it's only affects areas where skin is touching other skin; on the scrotum and under the penis, but I'm rather sure that it is not chafing. It doesn't hurt, it is just constantly damp with a cold substance, with small fissures. The skin where this is affected is shiny and sensitive as well. I've used all kinds of anti-fungal creams and anti-bacterial soap, athlete's foot powder - everything, and I can't get rid of it.
It seems that the same thing occurred last time I was in England. I don't know what to do, because I am constantly sticky and uncomfortable, and it is seriously affecting my quality of life.
To be honest, the only thing thats really bugging me is the sweaty sticky feeling I constantly have - it's not very itchy anymore. I do sweat over actively down there, so I don't know how to stop that either.
Do you think it would be something that a partner could catch, if I were protected?
Please let me know if you find out what that is, because I have tried antifungal creams including a prescription my doc gave me. Nothing seems to work, and it is absolutly consuming my thoughts! Like you said it doesn't really hurt at all, just a bad odor and stickiness that will not go away.
