Many possibilities: It could be any number of things. This could be a contact allergy, a reaction to something you are allergic to. It could be a cluster of bug bites. Many possibilities. You will need to be examined to determine the proper diagnosis.

Could be many things: Eczema, contact dermatitis, or even jock itch. Try switching to a hypoallergenic laundry detergent and bathe with hypoallergenic soaps. If that doesn't help, try using an antifungal cream for jock itch. Consider a HealthTap Concierge visit or see a dermatologist if these simple methods don't help.

Sounds like: A mild folliculits (inflammation of the hair follicles) due to the RUBBING of your pants on your thighs. If you wear tight jeans etc. This may be the culprit. Hope this is helpful! Dr Z

I get rashes on my thighs after shaving. How can I solve this?

I get rashes on my thighs after shaving. How can I solve this?

Stop shaving your th: Best is to stop shaving there. If you must shave, be VERY gentle. Do not go over and over it. Do not press hard. Notice that the longer the time between shaves the more irritating it is. So, very gentle but more frequent shaves with good lubrication results in less irritation.

Thigh irritation: I suspect skin irritation of your thighs may be related to such things as continual friction and/or sweating and? Yeast infection Perhaps wearing tight jeans plays a role, also. Avoid tight clothing, keep the thighs clean and dry once the rash clears. In the meantime try applying an antiyeast anti-inflammatory ointment like mycolog. If no improvement, consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatm

Fungal?: Have the rashes persisted for days? It is always very difficult to comment on potential causes of rash without an exam. Fungal rash (tinea corporis or versicolor), intertrigo (irritation from chafing maybe complicated by infection) or erythrasma (bacterial infection) are associated with round itchy/scaly persistent rash in this region.

Doctor can examine: Rashes are hard to describe in words. Usually, a doctor has to look at a rash to see what it might be. For common rashes such as eczema, mild reactions to plants or chemicals, excessive dryness, or little itchy bumps, over-the-counter hydrocortisone 1% cream usually helps. A rash of itchy bumps can be of an allergic cause, but there are also non-allergic causes of itchy rashes.

See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

Red, dry, and hot (not itchy or painful) 10cm-diamater rashes on my mid-outer thighs. Irregular shape is identical on both thighs.

Needs exam: Red and hot is either hives or abscess formation; however, you will need to submit a photo and I suggest and examination: cannot actually be answered here without a picture or exam.
