Jock itch?: It could be a fungal infection, but more likely a "jock itch" than a yeast infection - and unlikely to be related to the recent course of bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). Feel free to try an otc antifungal cream, but if nothing happens, see your doctor or a dermatologist and find out what it really is.
