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.

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.

Any recommendations on how to resolve itchy or rash like issues on upper inner thighs by groin area. This is typically worse after sweating.

Rash: It sounds like you may have a yeast/fungal issue going on. You need to make sure you keep you skin as dry as possible - when in a situation of sweating, use wicking clothing and change clothes frequently. 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!

See doc to make sure you do not have a fungal infection. Germs like dark and damp places. Consider using anti-bacterial soap and Gold Bond powder. Peace and good health.

See your doctor: Tightness in your chest with deep breathing may be asthma but this is a difficult call to make with such vague symptoms. Need more history so better see your doctor. Night chills without fever or sweating may not be anything else other than feeling cool

Groin hyperhidrosis: Botox can be used effectively to treat hyperhidrosis of the groin.

Not herpes: Herpes doesn't cause such symptoms. Your positive HSV test has nothing to do with it. In any case, this doesn't sound abnormal, especially if you're in a tropical area of India.
