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.

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.

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.

My thighs are very fat. Because of that, I always get rashes on my inner thighs. The area has become dark and it hurts a lot while walking. Any remedy?

On my lower thighs I have two identical "7" shaped rashes that are in the same space and shape. They're very itchy, I have not spilt anything on them?
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.
Could be a yeast: Infection or some other infectious process. Please see your doctor to be sure.

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.
