Itchy rash on inner thigh only at night, what could this be?

Itchy rash on inner thigh only at night, what could this be?

Fungal, tinea cruris: Good evening, itchy rash on the inner thigh could be due to a fungal infection, tinea cruris, especially in a heavy-set person. There is no precise reason why it should appear only at night; probably, we are too busy during the daytime to pay attention to it. If it is due to a fungal infection, it may need specific creams to make it go away. Over-the-counter creams, though helpful, see a doctor.

May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor.

I have a white patchy itchy rash on my inner thighs. Can it be a fungus? And how did it appeared?

May be fungi: Definitely may be a fungus but may also be xerosis (a very fancy name for dry skin). See a dermatologist who can perform a KOH test. You will hardly feel anything and can rule out a fungus almost immediately.

I have a dark extremely itchy rash on the folds of my inner thighs I found a picture online of what it looks like but no description. What could be?

Tinea cruris?: Tinea cruris comes to mind based on the location and description. This is a fungal rash, the fungal organism normally residing on our skin and proliferating in areas of warmth and moisture such as this. That’s one thought.

I have itchy rash that started on my thighs about 3 to 4 weeks ago, and now it has developed on my face. What could be the cause? Could it be hiv

I have itchy rash that started on my thighs about 3 to 4 weeks ago, and now it has developed on my face. What could be the cause? Could it be hiv

No.: There are characteristic hallmarks of hiv, but "itchy rash" is not one of them. Most common causes would be virus, drug reaction, and allergy to something you came in contact with or ingested. Let a dermatologist evaluate you and tell you for sure.

Hello. For about 3 months I have had an itchy rash mainly on the inner thighs. However some spots have appeared on my stomach and buttocks?

Hard to tell: Sometimes dry skin may cause this. Try applying a moisturizer on the area <3 mins after bathing on a daily basis. If not helpful, see a dermatologist.

Hives: This rash sounds like hives. Try taking a long-acting oral antihistamine like cetirizine or fexofenadine. Try an identify any triggers that could have caused the hives. If hives last a long time, it is likely not an environmental or food trigger. See your primary care physician or an allergist for further evaluation and management.

I have had a very itchy rash that has traveled around my body for more than 3 weeks. Started inner thighs and inner arms. Moved behind knees, buttocks?

Allergy consult: The issue is complex and you should consult an allergist. Do realize that even though we can usually control the rash, not uncommonly no cause can be found despite exhaustive studies. In the meanwhile, try taking antihistamine 3 to 4 times a day to see if this may help. The dose needed for itchy skin is much higher than what is needed to control hay fever but even then it may not work.

I have a non itchy rash on my inner thigh and buttocks with stomach cramps?

I have a non itchy rash on my inner thigh and buttocks with stomach cramps?

Could be fungus: A fungus infection can affect the upper inner thighs and the buttocks. If your feet are scaly, this would support a fungal infection. I can't relate this to stomach cramps, however.

Many possibilities: There are many things that could cause the skin to itch. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Symptoms : very itchy anus, vaginal odour+itch+burning sensation, watery white sometimes yellow discharge, inner thigh itchy rash and small blisters?

Yeast: This sounds like a bad yeast infection with regard to the itching and watery / white discharge. Given the presence of actual blisters and odor, there might be additional infections that need to be evaluated in person with an exam.

Erythrasma: I assume you used actual antibiotics and not antifungals. You could have Erythrasma which is a bacterial infection that just like fungus affects areas of moist skin. The rash may have well defined borders and may become brownish. Topical and sometimes oral antibiotics are necessary. Keeping the area dry is the way to prevent this. Check that you are in good health for example no diabetes
