Thigh Lesions: Without knowing much more info, my response is limited. These can be acquired, such as a fungal infection (tinea versicolor) or from systemic disease such as diabetes mellitus (acanthosis nigricans), or have been present since birth (congenital), such as large pigmented nevi or vascular port-wine stains. I recommend seeing a physician to first render a diagnosis then consider cosmesis options. ...Read more

Most likely Fungal: Sounds like a fungal infection--"jock itch." Apply a good over-the-counter athlete's foot powder or cream. Just make sure the powder contains talc, NOT cornstarch. Cornstarch is inexplicably the base of many anti-fungal powders, which actually feeds the fungus--like pouring gasoline on a fire. Keep on treating for 5 days after it appears to be gone. ...Read more

Shingles?: Without being able to look at it, i would hesitate to attempt a diagnosis. That being said, if it is painful, and has a "blister" look about it, it could be shingles, which can be treated. Get it looked at soon as getting on the antivirals for it sooner would give a better outcome. If, of course, it is shingles. ...Read more
