The : The rash may require a scraping, or possibly a biopsy to determine the proper diagnosis. A true blistering rash in the groin could be a contact dermatitis to something touching the skin, or a primary blistering disorder such as bullous pemphigoid. A dermatologistg could do such tests, with immunofluorescence stains, to find a diagnosis, then appropriate treatment recommended.
