I have a red rash on my penis shaft near my groin area. It is also secreting clear like fluid from the rash. Is it eczema/dermatitis/yeast infction?

Not likely: Johns123,
it sounds like something you need to have checked out by a physician. Based on the symptoms and signs you have described it could be several things. Eczema typically does not secrete clear fluid, nor does dermatitis. Yeast is a possibility but you still need to rule out other things such as herpatic lesions especially if there is pain associated with the rash. ...Read more

Fungal Infection: Most likely you are suffering from a fungal infection of the skin. It is commonly referred to as jock itch. The main culprit is the humid environment created by sweat and folding of the skin. This creates optimal place for fungus to grow. Medical term used is tinea cruris. Can be treated with avoiding tight clothes, keeping area dry, and using otc anti-fungal cream like lotrimin (clotrimazole). Good luck. ...Read more

Moving rash: The armpit and groin are naturally moist, but also normally home to benign yeast, fungi and bacteria. This may be nothing to be worried about, but it can be a sign of diabetes. Diabetics are prone to infections. Other immune suppressors can also do this, so time for a check at a primary care provider more then a simple answer on line. Check it out to be safe. ...Read more

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 ...Read more

What would cause a rash in hotspot areas, purple and red bumps on legs and on groin?

Bumpy rashes on legs: Rashes can be difficult to diagnosis, even by a skilled dermatologist looking at the rash in person. With just a description I cannot answer your question. There are many causes of rashes in these areas, such as a contact allergy, irritation, chafing, fungus, scabies, etc. I recommend you make an appointment with a board certified dermatologist so she/he can examine you and make a diagnosis. ...Read more

Being treated for BV and Yeast Infection. Developed bright red flat spots on groin area. Also have rash on entire body. What could be causing this??

Drug allergy?: There are many possibilities, but I would guess an allergic reaction to one of the treatments you are receiving. Metronidazole, the usual treatment for BV, could do it; and so could fluconzole (Diflucan) orally if that's your yeast treatment. I suggest you hold additional doses and contact the doctor or clinic treating you in the morning. ...Read more

Red itchy rash under breast and groin area it looks like sun burn with bumps. I'm itchy all over but no rash other then those areas. What can this be?

Yeast infection?: If you are overweight, the areas under the breasts, the love handle, and the groin are more susceptible to candida infection. If this applies to you, try to keep these areas dry by using antiperspirant. In the meanwhile try some anti-fungal cream on the areas for a few days. If still not improved after a week, see you doctor. For overweight people, losing some weight should be a long-term goal. ...Read more
