Skin Infection
I am a male in my twenties. My groin area skin becomes red and hurts. After a few days it heals and becomes normal. but the cycle repeats. My underwear is usually wet under and gives out a very bad odor. I need to know what this is. I'm willing to pitch a photograph.

Hi!
If your underwear is wet then either you are sweating a lot or you are having a penile discharge. The redness can be due to either the discharge or sweat dermatitis. Wear cotton underwear that will absorb the sweat. Use medicated body power in the area. Keep the area dry. Change underwear during the day if need be. If still the symptoms persist then you may need to get a penile swab test done to rule out STD.
Please consult a skin specialist or your family doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
