Fungal infection: What you described suggests a fungal infection, like ringworm or jock itch. You may try over the counter medication for ringworm, like Lamisil. If that does not resolve the issue in a week or so, it would be prudent to see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
