Don't know: Rashes are really impossible to diagnose over the computer, so seeing a dr for a visual examination would be your best bet. In the bikini line though, you may have shaved and that can cause an irritation and folliculitis like rash. Groin areas commonly get fungal infections too. But as stated, these are guesses only, see a dr for the answer and tx, best wishes.

You are on the right path, see the doc you need to see for the referral. Also, use unscented mild dilute soaps, detergents and no fabric softeners. Good luck, let us know what you have! Send another note with diagnosis, please. Thanks for the Thank You note, too!
