Possible fungal: The damp red rash with a fishy smell may be from a longstanding fungal infection; however if sexually active, could be related to std. I would recommend over the counter antifingal cream ( lotrimin (clotrimazole) af) - apply a thin layer am/pm for 5 days- if not resolved- see your pohysician and get checked for stds. ...Read more

Keep clean, apply clotrimazole cream 2-3 times daily and keep the area aired out as much as possible. ...Read more
