Symmetrical Rash On Legs
Itchy inner thighs (rashes)swollen large patches. When I spread my legs it's like a half basketball size. Symmetrical. 5days so far. Can't be friction?
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.
