Rash around the groin and scrotum. dhobi itch

Question

I have a rash around my groin and scrotum, which is red in colour. The skin looks slightly raised with small lumps on the side of my legs.

I think the rash is due to me sweating constantly. I've always sweated a lot but it seems to be getting worse.

What is the rash and how can I get rid of it?

Answer

This rash is almost certainly tinea cruris, also known as dhobi itch.

It occurs typically in this area in males and is often associated with excessive sweating. It is caused by a fungus infection, which gets into the skin when it is moist and chafed.

You do not catch it from anyone else.

It is very common and nothing to worry about. The main problem is usually the itching.

It can be treated by a number of over the counter creams, including Canesten hydrocortisone (the hydrocortisone helps the itching), Daktarin cream, or Lamisil cream (this is the most expensive).

Any of these should do the trick. After showering, make sure you dry the area carefully and using some talc after you have applied the cream may help.

Wearing boxer shorts is better than Y-fronts.

It has a tendency to recur once you have had an episode, especially in hot weather, but that does not mean you will keep on getting it.

If it does not clear up with one of these treatments, go and see your GP.

Yours sincerely

Just get some jock itch spray, should clear up in two weeks. Cruex works pretty good.

I'd more concerned about the fact that, apparently, your dick is now gone too. Were you attempting to sodomize a fox by chance and the redness is actually bruising?

Rash around the groin and scrotum is a result of riding a wet camel.
