See PCP: See your primary care doctor first. Some PCP's will not do pelvic exams so check with yours to see if you should see a GYN doc instead. If you normally see a GYN for pelvic exams go there. Health departments can sometimes evaluate and treat for pelvic infections/problems.

Possible fungus: Tinea cruris, a fungus, is perhaps the most common cause of a rash called "jock itch". Although it can be treated with an antifungal cream alone, often the most rapid relief is obtained by using a combination antifungal and steroid cream (Lotrisone); it's also available in the generic version; apply it sparingly twice daily for several days until the rash is gone.

Itchy on back and groin with lumps over back area. What could be the cause?

Different options: That area has a lot of things in it both in the skin and below it. Sweat glands, hair follicles and skin cysts as well as lymph nodes, fatty tissue, vessels, muscles and other things. Is the lump growing, inflamed, painful, painless, draining, recurrent or constant, moveable or fixed...? Each of these (and many more) will provide your doc the answers as to what it is and what needs to be done.

Called jock itch: Using vinegar to rinse the area or baking soda and water can help reduce the itch which is typically from a fungal irritation. You cam also use lotrimin or tinactin (tolnaftate) and it if persists then I suggest you be seen.

Don't panic.: Nothing makes people more nervous than a rash in the genital area. It could be anything from jock itch to an allergy to something you applied in that area to, yes, something you caught from intimate contact. Put your mind at ease by seeing your doctor and getting it sorted out. You can try otc Hydrocortisone cream first if you wish, but if that doesn't work, see your doc or a dermatologist.
