Dermatologist: The good news is that the large majority of genital rashes and other skin problems are not STDs. Some problems are exclusively genital; others are simply genital involvement of conditions that can occur on skin elsewhere. Impossible to guess the cause in this case on a forum like this. Probably a dermatologis can sort this out quickly; ask your doctor for a referral. Good luck!
