Genital herpes on inner thigh, help?

Treatment

Genital_herpes
If you're sure it's herpes, it can be treated with anti-herpes medication (acyclovir, valacyclovir, or famciclovir), provided you start soon enough. The lesion will go away without treatment, but it may come back in the same place. If it comes back infrequently, you can just treat it when it happens. If it comes back frequently (several times a year), you can take daily therapy to prevent it.

Yes

The "classic" herpes lesion looks like a clear-headed small pimple. But it can certainly get red if inflamed. Bottom line: get to your doc and have a culture done to get an answer. Good luck!

High

He should get it treated without delay. Avoid coming into contact with the area, especially sex, until it has been treated. You should probably get checked by your GYN, including a PAP test.

I have had a scaly rash show up on my inner thigh/groin. It looks like ringworm. Could it be herpes? I have had no initial outbreak.

Likely Tinea Cruris

Child_rash
If it is a scaly rash, it is very unlikely to be Herpes. Tinea Cruris (Ringworm) is the likeliest diagnosis however, I recommend a proper evaluation from your local dermatologist to rule out any other conditions. A KOH exam along with a proper history and physical exam will be helpful if performed.
