Hello, i am wondering about a lumpy red rash that has appeared on my upper thigh groin area recently. red lumps have formed around this area and have been there for at least 2 or 3 weeks now, they have turned a purple colour and look to be expanding. I have done research into genital herpes however most pictures seem to show spot like growths and are said not to leave red or purple marks so i dont know if what i have is herpes or jock itch or another related problem. A similar thing to this has happened to me before, with red lumps showing up around the groin area and lasting a few weeks however they have been nowhere near as bad as this now. In terms of sexual activity i have not had unprotected sex in around 3 years, which leads me to believe this isn't genital herpes because i would have thought that my symptoms would have been worse 3 years ago than now. I have included a picture of what the rash looks like on my profile, i would greatly appreciate any information people could give me from looking at this, as i am confused as to what it may be. Thank you!
