For the last 3-3.5 weeks, I've been dealing with some chafing discomfort in my groin and inner thigh region. The doctor I initially saw thought the redness/skin issue in the groin area was from a fungal or yeast issue. I was prescribed Clotrimazole, which seemed to help a little. The redness/rash in the region has calmed down over the last few weeks, though the chafing has remained. The dermatologist I saw afterward prescribed an ointment for the chafing/discomfort. It hasn't helped that much.
Now, I have an apparent lesion on my inner thigh which still chafes, but also now has begun having a burning sensation. The lesion is small, but very red and noticeable with a blister-like center. I'm worried it may be genital herpes, since I had a sexual encounter with someone I didn't know about 7 weeks ago. There are no other obvious herpes symptoms, such as spots/lesions on the penis, and no burning sensation when I urinate.
Is this lesion/skin issue now a result from the chafing, or a result from an infection like Herpes which has been contributing the whole time to the chafing?
