Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
What you have could be a fungal infection or it could be intetrigo. An intertrigo is an inflammation or rash, red and raw-looking, which may itch, ooze, and be sore, appearing in the body folds. It can be bacterial, viral or fungal in origin.
Wear loose-fitting cotton clothes and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap. Please keep the area clean, dry and apply some topical antiseptics. OTC anti allergics will help. You can apply topical creams with zinc oxide and mild steroids and see if it helps. In case the symptoms persist then antifungals (Clotrimazole 1%, Miconazole nitrate 2%, Tolnaftate 1% and Butenafine hydrochloride 1%. Many OTC products containing these salts are available, your pharmacist can help. Try a combination of two and apply until the infection you see disappears) may be needed. Only Triasporin may not help due to drug resistance or due to superimposed bacterial or viral infection. Other than that it can be an allergic reaction to something. Yes, fungal infection and STDs can cause a slight erectile dysfunction. Hence get this tested. Other than that there are many other causes of erectile dysfunction such as stress and anxiety, depression, smoking, alcohol, and illicit drugs, high blood pressure, poor circulation and peripheral vascular disease, heart or thyroid conditions, spinal cord injury, nerve damage (for example, from prostate surgery), or neurologic disorders (such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease). Such lesions and problems cannot be diagnosed with 100% accuracy on net and you would need to consult a skin specialist and an urologist. Treatment will depend on the cause. Take care!
Many thanks for your reply,
I stopped taking triasporin and the erectile problem disapeared so it was obviously the cause.
The problem also is gone for now, the gp prescribed me with another cream, apparently seeing a dermatologist is very difficult in the country where I am in, so I ll have to figure out another way to find one
