Doctor insights on:
Sweating In The Groin Area At Night
Are persistent, but very mild night sweats (slight dampness on forehead and groin area) worrisome in the absence of other symptoms?
Fever: Yes, worrisome. Strongly suggest you get a thermometer and document the fevers, the times they occur, your pulse and check carefully to be sure there are no other symptoms. Take this info to an infectious diseases specialist, or you can start with your family doctor and go from there. This pattern is not uncommon with TB, lymphoma and some other systemic conditions. Good luck.
I have sores on my thighs and groin area from them rubbing together and sweating, what can I do to take away the swelling and pain?
Intertrigo: Intertrigo (intertriginous dermatitis) is an inflammatory condition of skin folds, induced or aggravated by heat, moisture, maceration, friction, and lack of air circulation. Intertrigo frequently is worsened or colonized by infection, which most commonly is candidal but also may be bacterial, fungal, or viral. Treatment is with a mild cortisone cream plus an antifungal cream. I prescribe vytone.
Circulation: Without delay you should either go to the Emergency Room or make a quick appointment with your doctor. It may turn out not to be a big problem but you do need to find out ASAP.

Rash: It sounds like you may have a yeast/fungal issue going on.

You can also try an over the counter anti fungal such as lotrimin (clotrimazole). If it does not improve, get in to be seen. Good luck!
