Maybe inflammation: I would consider applying an over the counter steroid ointment to the inner upper thigh twice daily for the 3-5 days prior to your period, and also adding a claritin or allegra orally.

Greetings I often get this flea infection get some rashes around my thigh or leg I use a ointment get relief but it appears  any permanent solution ?

Avoid fleas: The question is a little hard to understand, but seems as though if you get flea bites, you get an infection. Obviously avoiding the causing agent (or bug in this case) is the permanent solution. Using some kind of flea repellent, treating rugs, clothes and having pets flea free are all components of making this happen. ...Read more

Possible: Possibly heat rash. Also may be fungal or even an allergic reaction or sensitivity to your underwear. Consider chaffing gel, and cotton only underwear or boxers. If fungal may benefit from over the counter fungal products. If gets worse or persists, I would seek out an opinion from your family doc to get a look at it and possibly benefit from a prescription. ...Read more
