It depends on what is causing it. If you mean a jog itch type of rash, then an antifungal cream may help. Even more important, something to reduce the sweating in that area.

Could be a lot of things. If it's jock itch (fungus) some topical antifungal like clotrimazole will work. If it's herpes, there's not a lot you can do if it's been more than a couple days. There are other possibilities that need still different treatments. Better have it checked out.

What could be causing my genital rash?

Answered by:
Dr. Ralph Morgan Lewis
Family Medicine

See below


common cause of genital/groin rash is fungus (tinea cruris) which thrives in warm, darm, moistness of groin area. Antifungal creams/sprays used for athlete's foot will also treat this area. Sanitize underwear to kill fungus; change often if damp; keep dry with talc (NO cornstarch!) or antifungal spray. Treat for at least 1 week after rash seems to resolve. May recur.

If a genital rash does appear how can you know whether or not it is herpes?

Vessicles


Sometimes it is difficult to definately diagnose a herpes simplex genetal rash. If you have had a recent new unprotected sexual contact and if you have clusters of little tiny blisters (vessicles) you have genital herpes. This vessicular rash will tend to recur in the same location if it is herpes. The recurrences are less severe than the initial episode.

Several options


It could be a fungal or yeast infection ("jock itch"), or it could be an allergic or irritant reaction to clothing, detergent, fabric softener, etc., or it could be a simple friction reaction if you exercise a lot. A dermatologist can give you a precise diagnosis and treatment.
