red spot on inner thigh

Yesterday I noticed a red area on my inner thigh about a half inch diameter pretty close to my genitals.  Its looks like some skin has been peeled or something.  It it not very sensitive and I am yet to notice any significant bumps.  Is it possible that this could be herpes?  I have been feeling on and off mild itching around my genitals and anus for the past 11 months or so after a sexual encounter, but all doctors Ive been to said it wasn't herpes and Ive never had an "outbreak".  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

did you ever return to your provider after you last posted here for further work up for your anal itching issues? Herpes wouldn't cause itching for 11 months.

the best thing to do is to see your provider about your newest symptoms for further evaluation.
